Flour Mill & Factory Partitions

Specialist Flour Producer

Background

Due to unprecedented demand for their specialist products, this Berkshire-based mill built an extension to their existing facility.

Requirement

A series of 4-hour and 1-hour rated firewalls and 1-hour fire rated staircase enclosure accompanying fire stopping products to form a new factory extension mill/production facility.

Solution

The broad range of applications for our industrial partitioning system was put to the test on this project. Not only were we asked to provide the 4-hour firewalls, we also found a solution that provided the 1-hour walls and encompassed the necessary hygienic requirements for a company making products for the food industry.

The 4-hour firewall was constructed using 150mm thick Firemaster Wall Ultima panels from Eurobond Laminates to achieve a 4-hour separation wall between new and existing buildings. Supporting steelwork was encased using 50mm thick Vermiculux boards which protected them, achieving a 4-hour rating. Firestopping to the head of walls was also installed here to achieve a 4-hour rating. The 1-hour firewalls were constructed using 100mm thick Firemaster Wall Extra Panels from Eurobond Laminates. Head and end-of-wall firestopping details were also installed on these walls to achieve the 1-hour rating.
