Completion for Composite Enclosure Contract in West Yorkshire

Stancold’s expert industrial partitions team were pleased to complete the handover of a project in Wakefield prior to the festive break, following the successful construction of four fire-rated partition walls.

Working with a construction and civil engineering specialist for an end user dedicated to aluminium packaging innovation such as drinks and aerosols, our team were recommended by one of our supply chain partners as an alternative to jumbo stud work.

The fire-rated composite walls were required to enclose new specialist tanks which meant a tight programme of works in line with its delivery. As far as the ever-changing market allowed, our team successfully completed different phases of the project, ensuring that the tanks could be installed straight from importation from overseas.

As this was the first time that the contractor had used a composite system for a fire-rated partitioning project, Stancold’s Industrial Partitions expert, Shaun Jones, worked collaboratively to ensure that the design and specification matched the requirement. It’s this approach and Shaun’s depth of knowledge that sets Stancold apart from our competition.

Installing from a concrete bund which offers protection against hazardous leakage, our team carried out a vertical panel installation and accompanying firestopping to achieve the 60-minute fire-rated specification.

The team worked hard to meet this project’s tight programme of works and we look forward to completing further projects with similar challenges throughout 2022.

To discuss your partitioning project in more detail, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Shaun on 07821 152 663 or send us an enquiry.

Industrial Partitions Brochure Launch

It’s been a few months in the making, but we’re very excited to say that Stancold’s industrial partitions brochure is now finished. It will allow our customers to quickly understand how this system can benefit them.

When it comes to industrial partitions, there are so many different possibilities and uses including in factories, commercial units, data centres and warehouses. It’s never a one size fits all scenario, which can be a challenging message to get across.

Our industrial Partitions aren’t just about Passive Fire Protection, we also offer acoustic, thermal and hygienic partitioning for a range of industries and applications, whatever your partitioning needs, we have a solution to meet them.

Many of the photos were taken at one of the most interesting projects we worked on in the last quarter of 2016, a large flour mill and factory where we installed one and four hour rated firewalls to form a new factory and protect existing buildings.

The flour mill project allowed us to make the most of our range of expertise and our industrial partition system, so it seemed like the right choice when it came to showcasing how every solution Stancold offers is installed with the end user in mind.

Stancold have been working on Industrial Partition projects for decades and can help with a range of services to ensure that you get a high quality installation that meets your business requirements. Our team of project managers and installers have a wealth of experience to ensure everything runs smoothly and you’ll even spot them in some of the photos we took for this project!

The brochure is now available for download, or you can email us at enquiries@stancold.co.uk if you’d prefer a printed copy.

If you’d rather speak directly to one of the team you can give Shaun, our business development manager, a ring on 07821 152663.

 

Complex Firewalls for Knox and Wells

Installing firewalls and hygienic partitioning panels in Wales.

Stancold are looking forward to working with Knox and Wells again on an exciting project in Wales, installing firewalls and hygienic partitioning for a specialist manufacturing facility.

The project, due to start at the end of February will enable Purolite, a leading manufacturer of specialist resins, to expand their production. They recently purchased the building next door to their current facility in Llantrisant and it needed significant refurbishment to meet their requirements.

After a successful experience working together back in 2014, Knox and Wells contacted Stancold because of our track record in delivering technical performance driven composite panel installations in a range of industrial applications. There’s no better feedback than a returning client and we love a challenge. This project certainly delivers on that front!

There were a number of issues to overcome. Because of the weight of the proposed ceiling plans we had to offer a more lightweight option whilst still maintaining hygienic requirements. Our Senior Business Development Manager, Tom Court, also worked with them to cost engineer the project.

To ensure that Purolite’s requirements were met in an existing space Stancold provided complete 3D modelling plans for Knox and Wells. A mixture of Kingspan’s new IPN Quadcore panels along with Eurobonds Firemaster mineral fibre panel system will allow us to achieve a variety of firewall requirements: a minimum 60 minutes’ fire integrity and 30 minutes’ heat insulation.

Installation will take 12 weeks and we can’t wait to see what the final product looks like. This scheme of mixed panel types does not only meet the client’s fire, hygienic and aesthetic needs, it is designed to be suitable for installation in the mixed level refurbishment of the existing portal frame building.

Property loss caused by fire in 2014 was approximately £607m (15% of yearly building insurance claims).

42% fatalities occurred outside the room where the fire started. Many lives could have been saved if fire had been contained with passive fire protection.
