Interior wall linings used at rail station are non-combustible

  • 6 Nov 2014

Part of Encasement’s Vecta range, the wall linings were specified in order to ensure compliance with London Underground fire and safety regulations where a ‘Class O’ spread of flame was required.

Designed to provide a durable, stylish and versatile solution for use in interior areas such as retail and commercial environments, the wall linings provided a contemporary finish across the station.

Vecta aluminium panels were also used to fully line the floor and ceiling of the shop, fixing rails and edge and door trims were installed, alongside a 10mmm high mirror polished aluminium skirting.

The linings from Encasement ensure compliance with fire and safety regulations

A white RAL 9010 PPC coating was applied to the Vecta panels in order to create a light, inviting interior in the dark underground location.

The Vecta range of interior wall cladding includes high quality wall linings, lift lobby linings, reveals, soffits, bulkheads and skirting to provide the perfect finishing touch to any project.

The cladding can be supplied in a wide variety of finishes, colours and materials including natural, brushed, anodised, stainless steel metal, PPC coated aluminium and compact laminates.

The Vecta range of linings are most commonly used in commercial projects such as education, healthcare, hotel and leisure sectors, as well as retail, public buildings and airports.

The work was carried out on behalf of Network Rail and London Underground, who are currently carrying out station improvements for passengers across the whole network whilst ensuring that the highest safety standards are met.
