Stancold were approached by the project’s main contractor, following a recommendation from a supply chain partner, as a competitive alternative to traditional jumbo stud work.
The end user, a company dedicated to aluminium packaging innovation, required four fire-rated partitions to form an enclosure that would house new specialist equipment.
As this was the first time that the contractor had used a composite system for a fire-rated partitioning project, we worked collaboratively to ensure that the design and specification matched the requirement.
There was also the project’s programme of works to consider, centred around the delivery and installation of the new equipment, so we developed a phased construction schedule to meet this timeline and other contractors’ arrangements on site.
As far as the ever-changing market allowed, our on-site team worked tirelessly to meet the project’s tight programme of works.
The composite enclosure was made up of a Mineral Fibre panel system, where panels were installed vertically from 2m high concrete bunds, enhancing protection against hazardous leakage. Firestopping accompanied this to achieve the required FR60 specification.
This project was completed successfully thanks to the team’s excellent planning and expert knowledge of fire-rated systems.
Stancold demonstrated an unrivalled level of expertise
