Simple sprinkler solutions from Encasement

  • 20 Aug 2022

Where fire sprinkler systems are being retrofitted in social housing tower blocks and flats, Encasement’s Versa range provides a cost-effective, durable and easy-fit solution when boxing-in surface-mounted sprinkler pipework.

Pre-finished with a decorative resin impregnated paper, Versa ‘L’ shaped boxing is manufactured as standard from pre-formed UKTR-compliant plywood and is available in 5mm and 8mm thicknesses for use within flats, as well as communal areas, such as corridors and lift lobbies.

Versa sprinkler pipe boxing is available in a wide range of sizes and can help save on installation time and reduce costs as there’s no need for fabrication or painting on site.

All that’s required is for the boxing to be cut to length and holes drilled for the sprinkler heads, before securing them to the wall or ceiling.


Designed for use with both standard sprinkler heads and concealed ‘pop-out’ units with cover caps, Versa fire sprinkler boxing provides a more aesthetic finish to each project while also acting as a visible deterrent to tampering.

Where flame retardant boxing is specified, Versa FR boxing is available within the range and has been specifically developed to meet this requirement. Manufactured from flame retardant Euroclass B compliant board, Versa FR is designed primarily for use on high-rise residential projects.

Encasement’s experience working with contractors on countless social housing pipe and fire sprinkler boxing projects has demonstrated that Versa can usually be fitted in less than half the time of site-fabricated alternatives.

Also, as they’re pre-finished, there’s no on-site painting required, making them quicker and more cost-effective to install, which helps minimise disruption for tenants, due to the shorter timescales involved.
