Wrightstyle, the advanced steel and aluminium glazing supplier, has completed work at the refurbished offices of WS Swift, which provides domestic and commercial heating services and design development in building services engineering.
The project involved the supply and installation of WSL 60-F1 series FR curtain walling for internal fire-rated screens above a central atrium, along with two sets of Wrightstyle’s pioneering unlatched door system, and all fire rated to 30 minutes of integrity and insulation.
Wrightstyle was the first company to develop and launch the breakthrough unlatched door system, which is available in single or double leaf format, fully glazed, using non-selective door leaf push/pull technology, and offering a wide range of surface finishes including stainless steel.
Our fire resistant curtain wall systems go from 30 minutes up to 120 minutes for integrity only fire protection.
For the integrity and insulation protection, the vertical curtain wall facade also goes from 30mins to 120mins, whilst the rooflight applications are for 30mins and 60mins.
“Much of our work is for overseas customers in the Middle East or Asia, so it was a pleasure to work with WS Swift as we are both based in Devizes!” said Jane Embury, Wrightstyle’s marketing director.
The company is a champion of fire safety and recently raised concerns with the government about the inadequate enforcement of fire specifications, of particular concern in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Wrightstyle has first-hand experience of doors with untested or incompatible fire-resistant glass being accepted as fire doors within the regulatory definitions despite the fact that they are clearly not within the permissible limitations of their supplied test certification.
