SR2 Swing Gates (4)

Customers can specify SR1 or SR2 security ratings for swing gates or sliding gates in a broad range of sizes.

Procter Contracts is launching the Pro-Secure family of security-rated entrance gates comprising SR1 and SR2 swing gates and sliding gates. Swing gates are available in single-leaf and double-leaf formats, and all of the new gates can be manufactured in a variety of sizes for use at vehicle and pedestrian access points in a wide range of different sectors.

SR2 Swing Gates (3)The Pro-Secure gates have been independently tested and verified as achieving security rating SR1 or SR2 as defined by the internationally recognised LPCB standard LPS 1175 Issue 8.0, and they are therefore listed in the LPCB Red Book. The LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) is part of BRE Global, a third-party approvals body, and LPS 1175 is the standard for certification of intruder-resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. To achieve the SR1 and SR2 certifications, the gates had to be tested and proven to resist sustained attacks using specified hand tools for defined periods.

In most cases Pro-Secure gates will control vehicular access but they are equally suitable for use where large numbers of pedestrians enter or leave a site. Typical applications include commercial and industrial premises, warehouses and logistics hubs, waste recycling centres, schools and other educational campuses, hospitals and care homes, sports grounds and leisure facilities, data centres, government and defence establishments, airports, docks and utilities sites.

SR2 Swing Gates (2)Features that help the SR1 gates achieve their security rating include all-steel robust construction, heavy-gauge 868 wire mesh cladding fully welded to the frame, reinforced latch areas and, for the swing gates, hinge protection plates. The SR2 gates additionally benefit from double cladding with 358 steel mesh to resist cutting and climbing.

All of Procter’s Pro-Secure gates are hot-dip galvanized for long-lasting protection against corrosion. Customers can specify an optional polyester powder coating on top of the galvanizing for additional corrosion protection and improved aesthetics. Standard colours are black and green, or almost any RAL colour can be chosen.

Smaller gates in the Pro-Secure range can be manually operated but larger gates are powered or automated, and these are CE marked to the Machinery Directive.

Bedwas167Procter Contracts provides a comprehensive service that includes site surveys, security risk assessments, design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and, for powered/automated gates, CE marking and maintenance contracts. Furthermore, the company supplies and installs a variety of access control systems for powered and automatic gates.

Hywel Davies, Director of Procter Contracts, comments: “We have been manufacturing security gates for decades, so it is great news for customers that we now have independent certification by BRE and can market the Pro-Secure gates as LPS 1175 SR1 and SR2 security rated. This will be particularly beneficial for specifiers and contractors throughout the UK working on Secured by Design projects, for which we have been an accredited installer for several years.”

To complement the Pro-Secure gates, Procter Contracts can supply and install high-security fencing – including electric pulse fencing – plus CCTV systems and street furniture such as fixed or rising bollards, Armco barrier, rising-arm barriers, speed ramps and one-way flow plates.

Innovative Design

Picture4Looking for a system that will integrate with green roof applications, gravel, deck or slab finishes?  This is no problem for our Panorama system. We have designed the system with versatility in mind

Our patented system firstly utilises a balustrade holder allowing 5 position alignment of the vertical posts, compensating for any unevenness in the roof surface. Stability and safety of the system is provided by base rails with load support plates.  The use of baluster plates, results in the balustrade not requiring any penetration through the roof membrane and creates no sound transmission or thermal bridging through the roof.

Picture3Panorama C-ST can be installed independently of the roofing works, although it is particularly suited to integration with green roof systems and roof terrace finishes. This non-penetrative approach enables Panorama to be simply installed without invalidating any existing roofing warranties.

Leading external cladding supplier Aquarian Cladding Systems has provided the perfect solution for a £17m project in Birmingham.

Overlooking the Birmingham canal network, Granville Lofts is a high quality development of 119 one and two bedroom apartments. The £17 million scheme has been developed by Seven Capital and built by Colmore Tang Construction. 51 car parking spaces also form part of the development. Client: Seven Capital. Main Contractor: Colmore Tang Construction. Civil and Structural Engineers: CWA (Copeland Wedge Associates). Cladding: Aquarian Cladding / Gebrik UK

Main contractor Colmore Tang selected the experienced ALD Group from the Aquarian Approved Installer Network to install Aquarian’s unique insulating brick cladding system Gebrik on the Granville Lofts development.

Overlooking the Birmingham canal network, the seven-storey Granville Lofts development comprises of 112 one-and-two-bedroom apartments in an up-and-coming area within the vibrant city centre.

Chosen for its exemplary aesthetics, reliability and speed of installation, Gebrik was also vital in overcoming several challenges.

Granville LoftsWith the site situated between the railway and canal, deep foundations were restricted therefore the building was piled which meant the overall construction needed to be relatively light.

Further restrictions were imposed by Birmingham City Council’s Planning Department, who insisted on a masonry façade due to its historic city location.

ALD Group Contracts Manager Andy Wood explained: “With over 3,700m2 of brickwork to install, Gebrik provided a quick and efficient cladding solution.

“Most of the cladding was installed during the autumn and winter, and because Gebrik is not affected by weather, we were able to continuously install come rain or shine.

“Logistically, the city centre site was a real challenge, but with Gebrik arriving in up to 600m2 single loads, vehicle movement and site storage was reduced to a bare minimum, meaning less impact on our neighbours and a safer environment for all.”

The 3,727m2 of Gebrik cladding, plus the fully insulated Fusion structural SFS system, contributed to the completion of the entire scheme in less than 40 weeks.

Aquarian were on hand with their technical expertise, ensuring that insurers and Birmingham City Council’s Building Control were satisfied that the construction complied with the system’s BBA certificate and current fire regulations.

For Aquarian’s Managing Director Paul Richards, Granville Lofts is yet another success story for Aquarian and Gebrik.

“We’re extremely proud of our robust, intelligent and innovative brick cladding system and its ability to adapt and thrive in challenging environments,” said Paul.

“We were thrilled to have been involved in a project as high-profile as Granville Lofts and the installation by ALD was one of outstanding quality. It’s yet another perfect example of Gebrik.”

Aquarian Cladding, based in North Somerset, supplies brick and terracotta cladding systems to the UK construction industry across a wide range of sectors, from residential to commercial.

Safesite has provided Wolverhampton Wanderers FC with a bespoke rooftop safety solution to allow the Club to video training sessions safely at height.

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ training premises at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground, has recently undergone significant redevelopment to enhance the players’ facilities and to create a ‘Category 1’ Academy.  In order to learn as much as possible from training sessions, the Club wanted to be able to video the sessions from multiple angles, including from a flat roof area that is accessed via an office.

bespoke step-over and walkwayFollowing a site survey, Safesite proposed a comprehensive solution which included the installation of a  bespoke step-over to allow safe passage from the facility’s office balcony onto a Kee Walk walkway which offers a demarcated route to the flat roof area where the filming takes place.  KeeGuard  guardrail systems have been installed to provide edge protection to the exposed edges of the roof.

 

Bespoke access platform for filmingThe installation has been completed with the construction of a fully guarded bespoke access platform to provide clear visibility of the pitches so that filming can be carried out in complete safety, giving the Club an invaluable overall perspective of the training sessions.

 

 

 

 

 

Kee Walk walkwayThe Kee Walk walkway provides an anti-slip walkway for staff to access the video platform safely, even in wet weather, while the fully guarded platform provides collective height safety, overcoming the need for restrictive protection such as harnesses and lanyards while filming.

Dramatic lighting and warm colours to give a homely effect.Two-thirds of UK residents feel that too much focus is placed solely on the construction of new homes, as opposed to rounded communities with supporting infrastructure, new research has found.

The Future Communities Report has been published by Eurocell plc, the UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U window, door, conservatory and roofline systems. It draws on the findings of a survey of 1,000 UK adults with an equal split between homeowners, private renters and social housing occupants.

Almost seven in 10 (69%) of respondents said that they felt not enough consideration is given to the provision of educational, health and sport facilities during the current planning process for homes.

Group of friends holding burning sparklers against the sky

A further 32% of people believe that not enough has been done to support the development of doctors, dentists and hospitals, with a further 31% saying that not enough had been done to support the development of schools and nurseries. Respondents also said that a lot more should be done to provide parks (28%), leisure facilities such as sports and craft centres (26%) and amenities such as cafes (21%).

As a result of this, 55% of respondents said they felt that quickly building a high volume of homes negatively impacts community spirit. In addition, 44% identified a failure to extend existing services (for example, doctors’ surgeries and schools) to allow for an increase in the number of residents as having the biggest impact on the integrations of new and old communities.

Whitepaper image - Ariel housing development - small copyWhen asked to identify the top factors in ensuring that enough supporting infrastructure is developed in the communities of the future, 37% highlighted providing more opportunities for local residents to input on planning decisions while 36% said there was a greater need for collaboration between planners and service providers. Other factors highlighted included more focus on the design and build of multi-use buildings (31%), more powers over services being passed to local government for better local oversight (27%), and more strategic leadership at a national level (22%.)

The report also includes expert input from architects at leading studios BDP, Stanton Williams, Urbanist Architecture and TOWN. It reveals insight into the communities that people hope to live in and current trends in the built environment sector.

Radmat ProTherm RockFace A2

Fire Regulation Compliance for Roofs

Building Products Index Ltd Roofing, waterproofing Leave a Comment

View the Radmat entry on BPindex

Visit the Radmat website

RockFace installationFollowing the Grenfell Tragedy in June 2017, and the subsequent investigations, the Governments of England and Scotland made significant changes to their respective Regulations related to fire performance.   Approved Document B Volumes 1 and 2 in England, and Technical Handbook Annex 2.C and 2.F in Scotland, introduced a new category of ‘relevant buildings’ with the aim of reducing the fire risk in high rise buildings (those over 18m in England and over 11m in Scotland).

RockFace A2 high resWhilst generally clear with regards to the fire performance requirements for external wall construction (external wall systems on buildings over 18m high have to be fire resistant, achieving class than A2-s1, d0 or Class A1 under the European classification system set out in the standard BS EN 13501-1, subject to exemptions) the regulation changes have resulted in some confusion with regards to the fire performance requirements for roofing systems, and the definitions of ‘specified attachments’, insulated balconies, roof terraces and podiums.

With the entire UK Government in Purdah (the period leading up to an election, during which government departments generally refrain from making any new announcements) the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) are unable to make further clarifications, however what is clear is that:

  1. Roofing systems must achieve Broof(t4) European classification in accordance with BS EN 13501-5.
  2. Roof finishes covered under the Annex of Commission Decision 2000/553/EC are considered to be unrestricted under the national Requirements (Loose laid gravel with a thickness of at least 50 mm or a mass ≥ 80 kg/m2, Sand/cement screed to a thickness of at least 30 mm or Cast stone or mineral slabs of at least 40 mm thickness).
  3. Any decoration or other finish applied to any external (but not internal) surface forming part of the wall must achieve class a minimum A2-s1, d0 classification to BS EN 13501-1.

This latter requirement means that any insulation board used as part of the roofing system where it abuts an external wall must be non-combustible, effectively banning the use of PIR, XPS and EPS insulation boards between the vertical waterproofing and the external wall.

In warm roof applications it is easy to switch the vertical upstand board in this application to mineral wool or cellular glass, but with no suitable product available for inverted roof applications specialist roofing system manufacturer Radmat Building Products had to develop a suitable solution quickly.

RockFace A2 Product high resProTherm RockFace A2, a non-combustible upstand insulation board for inverted roof applications, consists of a special mineral wool insulation board factory laminated to a 6mm Cement Particle board.  This combination, tested by WarringtonFire to BSEN1350–1, achieved an A2-s1, d0 rating.  Radmat Building Products believe that this is currently the only inverted roof upstand insulation board available that meets the requirements for ‘Relevant Buildings’ within Approved Document B, and the Scottish Technical Handbooks (those over 18 m in England and over 11m in Scotland).

Kee Safety step-over platforms

PROVIDING SAFE ACCESS OVER ANY ROOFTOP OBSTACLE

Building Products Index Ltd Fall protection Leave a Comment

View the Kee Safety step-over platform product details

Navigating a roof across pipework, low level walls, changes in levels and installed equipment can present a problem. Entire areas of the roof space can become inaccessible making maintenance difficult or even impossible. Ben Rutter from Kee Safety discusses why step-over platforms provide the perfect solution.

According to the Health & Safety executive (HSE), working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. At the same time, slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work and can happen almost anywhere. 95% of major slips result in broken bones and they can also be the initial cause for a range of other types of accident such as a fall from height.

In February this year, following a 12-month enquiry, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Working at Height published a report entitled, ‘Staying Alive: Preventing Serious Injury and Fatalities while Working at Height’. This new report sees the APPG call upon the Government and industry to review the working at height culture, with the aim of cutting down the number of deaths and accidents caused by falls.

Contractors are under pressure to ensure the safety systems are in place to prevent slips, trips and falls from height. This is apparent on flat roofing projects. Many flat roof tops feature pipework, HVAC systems, conduits, skylights and other obstacles, and with maintenance teams regularly accessing these types of roofs to carry out work on the building services equipment, it’s easy to see why accidents can easily happen. If a safety system isn’t in place, getting around these obstacles often ends up with workers climbing, hopping, and jumping over these objects.

Step-Over_for_pipeworkFor these type of obstacles, step-overs are the best solution. They provide a safe and secure access platform, and, since roof structures tend to not change, these systems can be left in place indefinitely so that there is no need to fix the problem every time someone has to access the roof.

Most of these structures can be installed in minutes and can be fully customised to what is required.  From a small ramp that crosses a run of conduit, to a platform with stairs that bridges two roof sections, to the walkways needed to get to and from access points, pre-fabricated, modular access platforms are available to solve all of these issues.

With adjustable step sections, and non-penetrative fixing options, step-overs have the inherent flexibility to not only protect those accessing the roof, but to also protect the roof sheet from unnecessary foot traffic and potential damage by providing a clearly defined access path. There is the ability to meet virtually any design requirement, with the end result always being a safe, secure and compliant access platform.

Constructed using tubular fittings, each fitting incorporates an internal set screw to lock the respective fitting safely and securely onto the tube to create a strong, stable and safe structure. This method eliminates the need for time-consuming welding or specialist skills or tools, saving contractors both time and money on site.

When selecting this type of solution, contractors should make sure that it complies with EN 14122-2/3:2016. This standard defines the requirement for non-powered fixed means of access in and around buildings where access to machinery and plant or where access and egress is required. It deals specifically with guardrail details such as materials, loading and deflection, alongside tread placement with regards to depth, rise, going and pitch with requirements for dimensional, positional and operational considerations for the work platform.

Winter takes a toll upon properties, highlighting the slightest weakness and opening up the smallest of cracks.

BPi Exterior family[1]But the first signs of spring offer the chance to remedy this damage caused by harsh conditions and now is the time to be planning and preparing for those outdoor jobs. Toupret’s high-quality range of filler products offer an ideal and comprehensive solution. 80-years of experience has gone into creating a range of performance fillers used by professionals globally, and it is a market-leader in the UK.

Each of the five products in Toupret’s exterior fill range has been developed to perform a specific task. These hardy products won’t flash or grin and can be used across renovation and refurbishment jobs, whether for patching, resealing or repairing on any number of surfaces. And what is more, no stabilising solution or bonding primer is required when applying Toupret products to clean, dry, sound substrates.

MUREX is a quality filler that dries tough, producing a rock-hard finish on all exterior substrates, including old painted surfaces. This strong, impact-resistant filler can take bolts and is great for filling deep holes and working areas that require a truly hardy surface. The finished result is paintable in 24-hours.
