Who is the BBA and what is BBA Approval? The British Board of Agrément (BBA), is the UK’s major authority for the evaluation and certification of construction products. For manufacturers (such as Delta) to achieve BBA Approval for a product, the product must go through rigorous laboratory tests, on-site evaluations and thorough manufacturing assessments. If the product successfully meets all the criteria it is awarded BBA Approval and Agrément Certificate.

Why is BBA product Approval so important? BBA Approval is an independent assurance that a product will perform as the manufacturer claims it will. The BBA’s reputation for robust testing gives the NHBC,

builders, specifiers, local authorities, and others within the industry reassurance that a product is of a consistent quality, will perform and will last. As the British Board of Agrément say “BBA products won’t let you down!” Our current BBA Certificates (00-3742

and 18/5509) covers Approvals for Delta MS 20, MS 500, FM, PT and Koster Deuxan 2C. Also Delta’s Memtech M1 Gas Barrier and Memtech R1 Gas Barrier Certificate number 16/5367.

Encasement provides stylish cover up at Twickenham Catholic College

casings to conceal structural steelwork around a new courtyard walkway, as part of its recently opened £14 million teaching block. Designed by DHP Building Design Consultants and built by main contractor, Graham Construction the project involved the refurbishment of the existing Edwardian structure, alongside the construction of The Elizabeth Building to create a modern learning environment for pupils. In addition to primary and secondary classrooms, the Elizabeth Building also includes a hall, library and sixth form centre. An integral part of the new facilities


was the creation of a covered walkway along two sides of the college’s main ‘quad’ courtyard that also incorporates 14 structural support columns, which are concealed by Encasement’s rectangular ‘Forma’ decorative

aint Richard Reynolds Catholic College in Twickenham is using Encasement’s ‘Forma’ and ‘Vecta’ decorative metal

metal column casings and matching ceiling soffits and fascias. Each 650mm x 990mm weatherproof

column casing stands 3.74 metres high and is manufactured from 1.5mm thick aluminium, which incorporates a Rimex ‘Black Pearl’ finish that combines a highly polished surface with a pattern of small circular indentations, making the casings both durable and aesthetic. In addition to the column casings, the

walkway also includes almost 70 metres of aluminium fascias and soffits at ceiling level, which use the same Rimex Black Pearl finish to conceal building services and drainage pipework. All casings solutions were not only manufactured and supplied by Encasement, but were also installed by the company’s specialist installation team. Encasement’s Managing Director, Martin

Taylor, commented: “The Black Pearl finish was an excellent decision for this project as it helps provide interest by breaking up the

large surface areas of the column casings. Also, the pattern helps provide some additional rigidity to the aluminium, making it even more durable and ideal for high traffic use. The same applies to the ceiling soffits and fascia, but the main advantage of using the same material is the it integrates with the column casings and provides a uniform finish to this excellent project.”
