We’ve just supplied fire rated curtain walling for the redevelopment of the Nigerian Stock Exchange in Lagos.
The contract for DBH Solutions was for the company’s SR60 system, providing EI120 performance, for one of Nigeria’s most important economic and financial centres.
The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) services the largest economy in Africa and is championing the development of Africa’s financial markets.
Wrightstyle was chosen because of its proven systems ranges, its international experience, and ability to meet tight delivery timetables.
The SR60 system solution has a unique construction which allows for any thickness and type of fire rated glass to be accommodated. This enables different fire ratings to be achieved without changing the system arrangement.
In addition, due to the simple substitution of pressure plates and gaskets, any of the standard aluminium or stainless steel capping options can be used to finish the facade, or to match in with adjacent non-steel/non-fire rated systems.
The NSE, a registered company limited by guarantee, was founded in 1960 and is a founding member and executive committee member of the African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA).
“This contract underlines how our specialist systems continue to be specified both here and internationally, reflecting tighter fire regulations and the need for robust threat management,” said Tim Kempster, Wrightstyle’s managing director.
“In the recent past, we have supplied our systems to the USA, Australasia, Far East and Middle East, underlining our reputation for dependability and innovation in this extremely important market,” he said.
