Fire sprinklers go undercover with Encasement W

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

pipe boxing range provides a cost effective, durable and easy-fit 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, as well as communal areas, such as corridors 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, as they are cost effective and easy to install. “From our experience of working with

contractors on countless social housing projects where pipework needs to be concealed, Versa boxing solutions can be fitted in less than half the time of site made alternatives. Also, as they’re pre-finished with durable white melamine, there’s no painting required on site, which also saves time and cost.” He added: “As Encasement holds a full

FSC® ‘Chain of Custody’ certification, which certifies that our products are manufactured from sustainable timbers, this helps HAs


and LAs meet their compliance obligations under the UK government’s timber procure- ment guidance.”
