Wrightstyle has supplied 220 square metres of fire-rated curtain walling for the external façade of Lidl’s first energy efficient concept shop in Northern Ireland.
With the first concept store in mainland Britain also now open in Rushden, Northamptonshire, the retailer intend to refit 150 of its 629 stores over the next three to four years.
The facility will ensure a greater focus on energy efficiency, aiming for a reduction of around 20-30% on standard electricity costs.
The 3,000 square foot facility has benefited from Wrighstyle’s glazing products, fixed in a double format mullion configuration to meet aesthetic requirements and seamlessly integrate with other non-fire rated screens.
The store’s green credentials do not stop with the external glazed elements. For example, the warmth from its refrigerators is also recycled and used within the store.
Wrightstyle’s technical director, Lee Coates, commented: “We were delighted to supply to this new supermarket, because it underlines how glass and glazing systems can play an important part in energy conservation – both by letting heat from the sun in, and preventing it escaping.
Importantly, while our systems can effectively and cost-efficiently help to regulate internal temperatures inside large offices and retail facilities, they do so without compromising on their primary safety functions.”
