ZEUS LITE SAFEGUARDS CEILING SPACES ACROSS WAKEFIELD FOOD WAREHOUSE

Share

Forming a fresh element to the UK’s critical food supply infrastructure, a new distribution warehouse in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, is near to completion with the specialist suspended ceiling installer making use of Zeus Lite 90:30 from the range of TBA FIREFLYTM, to create vertical fire barriers at intervals within the roof-space across the footprint of the building.

The 15,300 m2 facility at Headways in Stanley, on the outskirts of Wakefield, has been built by GF Tomlinson for the Kitwave Group, a national distribution business with a fleet of over 500 vehicles supplying hotels, restaurants and many other venues across the country.  The installation of the Zeus Lite was undertaken by Nottingham Suspended Ceilings, as the sub-contractor well experienced with the performance and user-friendly characteristics of the Firefly range.

All the rolls of Zeus Lite 90:30 material and the well proven Firefly fixings, including stainless steel staples and fire-resistant adhesive, were supplied to Nottingham Suspended Ceilings by the merchant, Minster On-line.

The site agent for Nottingham Suspended Ceilings, Mark Prescott, commented: “Our company carries out commercial contracts right across the East Midlands and beyond, where we have made use of Firefly barriers on a large number of past projects.  Although you have to be a competent contractor and follow the manufacturer’s guidance precisely, we find the Zeus and other products in the Firefly range straightforward to install.  In the case of the warehouse here, we have now completed the installation of the fire barriers up to roof level in dozens of locations across the building; as well as installing all of the suspended ceilings throughout.”

FIREFLYTM ZEUS Lite is ideally suited to this type of application, comprising a flexible woven fabric fire barrier that has been specifically developed for the vertical separation and compartmentation of extensive concealed spaces within buildings.

By offering 90 minutes integrity and 30 minutes insulation, FIREFLYTM ZEUS Lite 90:30 exceeds the minimum requirements regarding fire barriers under the Building Regulations’ Approved Document B (Fire Safety).  The specially treated glass fibre fabric is strong and resilient as well as flexible while, crucially, the system’s certification covers the inclusion of service penetrations; which many alternative products do not.
