A company that specialises in fabricating and constructing industrial buildings, including works at Cardiff airport, is making substantial use of purlins and other profiles from the Hadley Group range.
Arena Supplies, established in 1992, has earned a lofty reputation for delivering high quality steel framed buildings, securing it repeat business with a range of companies nationwide.
Switching to specifying Hadley Group’s UltraZED™ purlins five years ago, they have continued to use its UltraBEAM and UltraMEZZ™ products, with orders surpassing £30,000 in that same period.
Arena Supplies provides complete turnkey solutions for its customers, including the foundations, slab and all services before erecting the primary steel frame, which is fabricated at its premises in Llantrisant, Glamorgan.
The BSE N90 execution Class 2 registered manufacturer then employs Hadley Group’s UltraZED™ purlins and UltraBEAM profiles for closing the building envelope.
Managing Director for Arena Supplies, Scott William, commented: “Hadley Group is a very good company to work with: we get a brilliant service, particularly in terms of supply, which is why we went over to using Hadley Group’s profiles.
“And while we have our own in-house structural engineers, they will regularly make use of Hadley Group’s own software and support to verify the figures relating to the products chosen.
“Our turnover has been growing steadily with different projects, seeing us working all over the UK, building industrial and commercial properties – both for private clients and our sister company which develops industrial parks – with the volume of Hadley Group profiles we use, also increasing. Overall we are very pleased with the service we receive.”
A recent project at Cardiff airport, which saw the creation of a car hire vehicle storage unit, with a separate car wash facility, featured Hadley Group products extensively in its construction.
Hadley Group continues to supply Arena Supplies with a comprehensive range of accessories such as cleats and bracketry, while also providing cut-to-length profiles and special fabrications on a short lead-time.
As with other key clients, Hadley Group allocates project management and customer service teams to work closely with Arena Supplies.
Hadley Group’s UltraZED™ purlins are produced from high tensile steel, developed to outperform conventional products.
They offer supreme strength, spanning characteristics, as well as weight savings of between 6 and 13 per cent. Available in a choice of 59 different depth and gauge variations, they are CE marked to BS EN 1090 Execution class 4.
Compatible with industry leading Tekla software and Hadley Group’s own DesignSuite PRO software, Hadley’s UltraZED™ purlins can be specified, enabling speed of cut to length section orders, delivery and installation.
The purlins also provide a generous 70mm face for fixing sheeting or other cladding materials, while facilitating the free movement of air within the building.
