Red hot collaboration for SFS and Procladd (Scotland)

  • 26 Jun 2018

Fastener specialist SFS has collaborated with Scottish roofing and cladding contractor Procladd (Scotland) Ltd on the hotly anticipated Radisson Red hotel, which has recently opened its doors.

An aesthetically impressive building on the north bank of the River Clyde in Glasgow’s events hub, the £30m, ten-storey boutique hotel will be Europe’s first new build for the Radisson Red brand and the first hotel owned by Forrest Hotels, part of the Forrest Group.

With 176 bedrooms and a roof top sky bar with awesome views over Glasgow, the hotel’s opening was greatly anticipated by the city’s tourism leaders, as its growth as a business and leisure destination continues.

Appointed by main contractor Balfour Beatty Construction, Procladd (Scotland) Ltd started work on the 3,500 square metre aluminium rainscreen system in May last year.

This consisted of a Booth Muirie Alucobond Spectra ACM panel system, finished in a distinct Red Brass colour with Iridescent “Colour Shift” properties. The colour stands out as the main feature of the hotel, matching the Radisson Red brand and continuously altering shades with the reflection and refraction of light.

SFS, who spearhead the market with powder coated fastening solutions for the building envelope, provided fasteners to match the iridescent red of the Alucobond Spectra ACM panel.

Chosen for its superior visuals, SFS’s self drilling SX3 fastener, with its unique patented irius® head, has a low profile, smooth, unblemished appearance that can be perfectly colour matched to any finish.

Grade A4 316 stainless steel fasteners were specified for the application because of their enhanced performance and anti-corrosive properties, helping to extend the life of the building and, therefore, qualify for SFS’s extended warranty.

Keith Burrell, CEO, and Stuart Tulloch, MD, of Procladd (Scotland) Ltd both said it had been great to be involved in this prestigious project.

“The main feature of the building is the aluminium rainscreen system which is coloured in a unique and vivid red. SFS worked very closely with us to ensure that a perfect colour match was achieved, and we couldn’t be happier with the results,” they said.
