Encasement’s simple solution to conceal fire sprinkler system pipework


here fire sprinkler systems are being installed or retro-fitted in tower blocks and flats, Encasement’s

‘Versa’ pipe boxing range provides the perfect cost effective solution for concealing sprinkler pipework. Manufactured from pre-formed FSC® certified

plywood and pre-finished in a durable white melamine, Versa ‘L’ shaped boxing is available in either 5mm or 8mm thicknesses for use within flats and communal areas, such as stairs and lift lobbies where sprinklers are required. Versa boxing can be used with standard sprinkler heads or concealed ‘pop-out’ units with cover caps. Available in a wide range of sizes, Versa

sprinkler pipe boxing helps save on installation time, as there’s no need for fabrication or painting on site. All that’s required is for the boxing to be cut to length and holes drilled for the sprinkler heads before securing to the wall or ceiling.

Encasement’s Managing Director, Martin

Taylor, commented “Our fire sprinkler boxing has already been installed on a large number of number of high rise refurbishment projects, where pipework and sprinklers need to be

concealed for both aesthetic and practical reasons. Not only are they cost effective and easy to install, but Encasement also holds a full FSC® ‘Chain of Custody’ certification, which certifies that our products are manufactured from sustainable timbers. This means that

local authorities can meet their compliance obligations under UK government procurement guidance.”

Cladding makes a difference in Caerphilly

Freefoam Fortex Double Shiplap PVC-U Cladding has been utilised to great effect on homes on the Lansbury Park estate in Caerphilly. Installed as part of a £2 million investment package to improve energy efficiency and transform the appearance of the estate the extensive refurbishment programme was commissioned by Caerphilly County Borough Council and fitted by contractor Eon Energy. The development previously featured white PVC cladding but the refurbishment gave the opportunity to bring colour to the properties. Eon Energy chose a variety of subtle shades from the Fortex range including Cappuccino, Colonial Blue, Misty Grey and Argyl Brown to compliment the new exterior finish. PVC cladding is a cost effective option saving expensive and time consuming ongoing maintenance. With Freefoam’s ten year guarantee on the majority of the colour range Caerphilly Borough Council will still be seeing the benefits in many years to come.
