Stylish casing solutions from Encasement T

he extensive refurbishment and upgrading of Wolverhampton’s Mander Centre shopping mall has

included both Vecta wall lining systems and ‘Forma’ column casing solutions from Encasement as part of the £35 million project. A key part of the plans was to improve the

shopper experience at the Mander centre by creating a double height full length glass atrium, which incorporates both ground floor and gallery shopping areas linked by a footbridge with escalator access. The comprehensive revamp has also

attracted a number of major retailers to the centre with H&M being one of the first to move into the new complex, while Debenhams is one of the latest with its 90,000 sq.ft department store. To help create the high quality finish demanded by the centre’s owners, Encasement’s Vecta interior wall lining system was used to clad the atrium and mall footbridge, as well as the gallery ring beam bulkhead. All of the panels were manufactured and

installed by Encasement and are finished in white to integrate with the interior design scheme which helps create the bright, open space for retailers and shoppers. In addition to the Vecta system, Encasement also manufactured, supplied and installed 34 Forma bespoke column casings, which use an elliptical contour design and are located around the perimeter of the ground floor and gallery shopping area to conceal structural steelwork.

Each column casings stands 3000mm high,

but the profile dimensions vary depending on the size of the structural steelwork that needs to be concealed. All casings are manufactured using Alucobond®

aluminium composite to

provide a durable and tough surface for high traffic areas and is finished in silver grey to integrate with the colour scheme.
