Bespoke ‘Forma’ metal casings from Encasement help provide an aesthetic and practical environment for shoppers at Coventry’s Central Six Retail Park.
This is by concealing structural support columns for a walkway canopy that runs the full length of the shopping area.
Central Six is a small out of town centre, which combines fashion retail, homeware and designer clothing stores with specialist shops, such as Hobbycraft and American Golf, as well as a fast food restaurant in 14 retail units.
As part of a refurbishment and facilities upgrade programme, Encasement supplied and installed 72 square column casings from its ’Forma’ metal casing range, which were used to conceal the existing circular structural steelwork and provide a more contemporary look to the retail centre.
Manufactured from durable 3mm thick aluminium and measuring 235mm square, each casing stands 3350mm high and is finished with an RAC 7022 Umber Grey PPC coating to not only complement the retail park’s colour scheme, but also provide additional resistance to weathering and accidental scuffing.
Martin Taylor, Encasement’s MD, commented: “Our Forma aluminium casings are widely used in the retail sector in both interior and exterior applications as they provide immense design versatility and colour options, as well as being durable and resistant to weathering when used in projects such as Central Six.”
