Two-Hour Fire-Rated Partitioning System for Warehouse Sub-Division, Bristol

Fulton Ltd

Background 

Following changes to their production process, Fulton Boiler Works, an industrial boiler specialist, were left with surplus space on site in Bristol. The most viable option was to sub-divide the area and let out to a new tenant.

Process

During an initial site survey, it was determined that the existing steelwork had already been treated with intumescent paint, therefore fire boarding was not required as part of Stancold’s works. This ensured that the project remained in budget for the client and an accurate quotation was provided.

Solution

Just a week on site saw the sub-dividing partition complete from start to finish. Due to the internal height of the facility, Eurobond’s Mineral Fibre Firemaster system was installed horizontally in order to achieve a fire rating of 2 hours.

Firestopping was also completed between the panel junctions and steelwork along with fire blankets to the head, given the intricate access points within this area, for maximum fire integrity to the structure.

Throughout the project, Stancold’s team worked from the empty side of the building to create minimal disruption to the day-to-day operations of the client.
