POWERCLAD® Scaffold & containment sheeting
Powerclad chosen for another major city centre project
ITP’s Powerclad scaffold sheeting has been chosen to protect and contain construction work at another major residential project following its installation at PLATFORM_ Sheffield, a 335-apartment build-to-rent development in the city centre.
The scheme, valued at circa £40m, has been launched by PLATFORM_, a fully integrated investor, developer, operator and asset manager of purpose-built residential communities throughout the United Kingdom. PLATFORM_ appointed Winvic to oversee the construction of a complex comprising various buildings ranging in height from six storeys to 14 storeys.
Designed by Acanthus WSM Architects, the accommodation offers a mixture of one, two and three bedroom apartments and one bedroom studios. The ground floor will have a commercial space with the facility to provide green public spaces.
IBN Scaffold Access has installed Powerclad FR sheeting on scaffold to provide on-site safety and security, improving the working environment while minimising impact on the surrounding area. The Winvic logo has been printed on some sections of sheeting, providing a branded solution without compromising the sheeting’s flame-retardancy which is independently tested and certified for TS 62 external use and TS 63 internal use.
ITP Account Manager, Dave Gilmore, said:
“PLATFORM_ Sheffield is another huge city centre development to feature our Powerclad product and one of many we have supplied in support of IBN Scaffold Access. Their standards are exceptional and they understand the key requirements of major projects of this size and value, including sheeting which has the necessary flame retardancy standards certified with third party approval. Powerclad FR printed sheeting meets that compliance – it’s T62 certified for external use and T62 certified for internal use. The product also passes the main BS 7955 standard for scaffold sheeting .
Powerclad FR is one of a wide range of commercial and industrial textile solutions manufactured by ITP. The company also supplies Heras and perimeter fence banners, building wraps, façade reproductions, vented sheeting, debris netting, keder/temporary roofing, acoustic barriers and insulated sheeting.
