ITP’s Powerclad FR flame-retardant scaffold sheeting has been used as part of a complex scaffold solution for a refurbishment project delivering high-end office space in London’s famous Regent Street.
Mason Scaffolding were asked to design and install scaffold on all elevations to assist with external restoration works and internal access for the fit-out of the Langham House building. The company erected a heavy-duty gantry to install a 1-ton passenger and goods hoist as well as a 1-ton beam hoist to allow lifting of material from the roadside up to gantry level. Powerclad FR was used to wrap the structure, providing security, protection and containment in a busy city centre location.
Powerclad FR is manufactured from polyolefin featuring reinforcement bands with eyelets every 10cm. The sheeting is available in printed and non-printed forms, both offering flame retardancy which is certified to the highest standards: TS 62 for external use and T 63 for internal use.
ITP Account Manager, Grahame Hunter, said:
“Mason Scaffolding have demonstrated their expertise in meeting the challenging requirements of this project and ITP are pleased to support them in delivering a solution. They have installed our sheeting to an exceptionally high standard. City centre locations with high pedestrian traffic require strong, durable and flame-retardant sheeting on scaffolding to protect construction work on site as well as safeguarding people in the vicinity. Powerclad ticks all those boxes, providing robust containment to prevent the fall of debris as well as providing flame retardancy which is certified by Certifire, an independent testing body.”
The renovation of Langham House is providing contemporary offices designed to facilitate open-plan working and socialising within the workspace. Located on the east side of Regent Street, close to the junction with Margaret Street, the building is conveniently located to benefit from the world-renowned retail and leisure facilities provided by the surrounding area.
