Contours’ Pedigree Installation


Leading column casings manufacturer, Contour Casings Ltd, continues its expansion with a significant installation at a renowned UK sporting venue.

Forming part of an extensive column casings range, Contours’ Preformed Plywood Encasement System was identified as the ideal solution to complete the refurbishment of the Premier Enclosure at Wolverhampton Racecourse.

Wolverhampton Racecourse, operated by Arena Leisure Plc, is the UK’s busiest racetrack, as well as being the first horse racing venue in Britain to have floodlit racing. Contours’ column casings were installed during the refurbishment of the “Sunbeam Suite” as a solution to the problem of unsightly building structures. The “Sunbeam Suite” is a large function room flooded with natural light which overlooks the parade ring and track.

Contours’ Preformed Plywood Encasement System is the perfect choice for designers and installers looking for a high-quality, pre-finished column casing that is quick and simple to install, a critical consideration on a project when time is of the essence, such as a refurbishment in a busy sporting venue.

The unique technology that Contour employs enables a product to be produced in a vast array of sizes, shapes and finishes and which will compliment any environment. Once finished in a hard-wearing material such as Formica laminate, preformed plywood column casings are lightweight yet strong products which require minimal lifetime maintenance, their modular design also facilitates easy specification.

David Roberts, Managing Director for Wolverhampton Racecourse, said, “We were looking for an aesthetic, yet robust encasement system to cover up exposed building structures, Contours’ product ticked all of the boxes. The large selection of options available allowed us to develop a professional-looking column casing which satisfied all of our requirements and ultimately enhanced the environment into which it was going”.

Craig Clark, Contracts Manager for Contour Casings, said, “We work closely with the client to produce a bespoke product which matches all scheme criteria. The experience and expertise we have built up over many years allows us to select the most suitable options from our wide range of column casings, for every project that we are involved with”.

All Contour products are supported by a unique range of services, including free site surveys, short lead times and a dedicated technical support department.
