ITP’s Powerclad FR flame-retardant scaffold sheeting has been used to support a refurbishment project in London, at the home of one of the UK’s leading art galleries for cutting-edge contemporary fine art.
Scaffolding has been installed at the Rhodes Contemporary Art gallery in Great Portland Street, Fitzrovia, to facilitate a façade makeover which includes restoration work carried out by Paye Stonework and Restoration, the leading specialist stonework contractor in London and the South East. Powerclad has been fitted to provide containment and protection for work across several floors of the frontal elevation.
ITP Account Manager, Grahame Hunter, said:
“We are pleased to play a role in the restoration of these historic buildings which will return the façade to its former glory, thanks to the expertise of Paye Stonework and Restoration. The gallery has remained open during construction work, so a highly secure, robust and reliable sheeting solution was essential to maintain the utmost safety. Powerclad FR is manufactured to meet those demands and more besides – it also offers independently certified flame-retardancy, meeting T62 standards for external installations and T63 standards for internal installations.”
Rhodes Contemporary Art’s new flagship gallery encompasses over 2,000 square feet of contemporary exhibition space, with three exhibition rooms spread over two floors. Its forward-thinking exhibition programme represents an international roster of emerging and mid-career contemporary fine artists.
With an in-house factory which includes digital and flexographic printing facilities, ITP are specialists in the design and manufacture of high-performance sheeting solutions which facilitate construction work. The company also supplies keder roof sheeting, vented scaffold sheeting, filter sheeting, acoustic barriers and debris netting.
