As theatres, restaurants, hotels and gyms begin a gradual return to trading, this key sector of the economy is a long-standing user of Encasement’s decorative column casings to help provide a stylish environment for customers while also concealing concrete columns and structural steelwork.
The combination of aesthetics and practicality are key features of our column casings, which enable architects and specifiers to enhance the customer experience, using a decorative finishes and designs in both exterior and interior applications.
As leisure sector buildings are often designed to cope with large volumes of people in foyers, reception areas and corridors, this requires the decorative casings to be highly durable to cope with customers and staff, while also requiring minimal maintenance.
Projects ranging from exterior casings for Premier Inn (pictured below) and the Jinnah restaurant to interior solutions for the Jubilee 2 Gym and Cardiff’s Sherman Theatre perfectly illustrate the diversity of options, as well as the design versatility available across Encasement’s range.
To achieve this, a number of the company’s column casing ranges are regularly used. ‘Circa’ and ‘Quadra’ pre-formed plywood casings have a tough laminated finish and are used for interior applications, while the metal ‘Forma’ range and ‘Polyma’ GRP casings can be used in both exterior and interior projects.
Circa and Quadra allow circular, square and rectangular profiles to be specified while also providing a wide range of finish options with the most popular being decorative laminates, which have very good resistance to damage, scuffs and scratches. They also offer specifiers a diverse palette of finishes, which is essential for many leisure environments, such as restaurants and hotels.
Strength, durability and colour choice are also features of the Polyma GRP range. As they are produced from moulds, a high degree of design flexibility is possible with shape; size and colour options all open to specification to meet bespoke project requirements.
Forma aluminium or stainless-steel column casings also extremely versatile and can be specified in circular, square, rectangular or hexagonal forms, as well as unique bespoke shapes. A wide choice of finishes is available including PPC coating in any RAL colour, as well as brushed, anodised, embossed, or textured finishes such as Rimex.
