ITP’s Powerclad KR 2000 FR keder sheeting has been used to facilitate refurbishment work at the Tate Liverpool gallery overseen by main contractor, Crown Services Organisations Ltd.
Powerclad KR 2000 FR keder sheeting was chosen as part of the Uni Roof system supplied by Altrad Generation, one of the UK’s leading specialist suppliers of scaffolding and building equipment. Blackburn-based Kirk Scaffolding installed the 973 sqm roofing system, utilising Altrad Generation’s D780mm alloy beam along with the Deep-Flow sheet tracking system.
Led by Key Account & Product Manager, Paul Holmes, Altrad Generation’s Manchester branch worked closely with the Kirk Scaffolding team to provide over 1,646 individual components resulting in 8.7ton of roofing equipment. The keder structure includes containment and weather protection provided by Powerclad KR 2000 FR, a heavy-duty, flame-retardant reinforced PVC material with extremely high tensile strength.
ITP Account Manager, Howard Jackson, said:
“ITP are proud to be associated with this high-profile project at one of the city’s most celebrated landmarks. We were delighted to support Paul and his team at Altrad Generation in supplying a robust and durable solution for Kirk Scaffolding. All our keder and temporary roofing sheets are manufactured using full width material, without any joins or seams across the width. This significantly increases the strength of the sheet. Powerclad KR 2000 FR is our most heavy-duty keder sheeting product, making it ideal for long-term installations and seafront locations, like Royal Albert Docks, which are often more exposed to the elements.”
Powerclad Keder KR 2000 FR sheeting is one of a wide range of options within ITP’s range of scaffold and containment products. The company also manufactures temporary fencing, vented and filter sheeting, acoustic barriers, debris netting and insulted sheeting. ITP supplies various flame-retardant grades of sheeting which are compliant with BS 7955 and TS 62 / TS 63 accredited.
