Two-Hour Fire-Rated Warehouse Partition, Gloucestershire

Howard Tenens

Background 

Howard Tenens, a nationwide logistics provider, accepted a new contract with a beverages client and required a reconfiguration of their existing storage facility.

Process

Within their plans, our client specified a partition wall spanning the 70m width of the warehouse, complete with a two-hour fire-rating.

During planning, we evaluated the options for installation; due to large racking already in place on site and the length of the panels required, a vertical installation would involve unnecessary disruption for the client to move it elsewhere. Therefore, it was negotiated that a horizontal installation would minimise such obstacles.

Solution

Stancold installed a 70m long x 8m high partition wall using Eurobond Firemaster Extra panels, achieving a two-hour fire-rating for the structure. This included fireboarding to the existing steel columns and firestopping to a unique head detail, which was designed to achieve the required fire-rating while conforming to the constraints of the building.

The installation took place over two phases, allowing for other demolition works to be carried out before the final portion was completed and handed over to our satisfied client.
