Encasement fire sprinkler boxing – saving time and money

Latest News Thu, Apr 8, 2021 8:40 AM


Where fire sprinkler systems are being retro-fitted 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 fire sprinkler pipework.

Manufactured from pre-formed FSC® certified plywood and pre-finished in a durable white melamine, Versa ‘L’ shaped boxing is available in either 5mm or 8mm thicknesses for use within flats, as well as communal areas, such as corridors and lift lobbies, and can be used with standard sprinkler heads or concealed ‘pop-out’ units with cover caps.

Available in a wide range of sizes, Versa sprinkler pipe boxing helps save on installation time, 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 to the wall or ceiling.

Versa fire sprinkler boxing not only provides a more aesthetic finish to each project, but also serves a practical purpose of containing the system components and acting as a visible barrier to potential tampering.

Also, where flame retardant boxing is specified, our Versa FR boxing has been specifically developed to meet this requirement, which is manufactured from flame retardant Euroclass B compliant board and is designed primarily for use on high-rise residential projects.

From our experience of working with contractors on countless social housing pipe-boxing projects, Versa can usually be fitted in less than half the time of site made alternatives. Also, as they’re pre-finished with durable white melamine, there’s no painting required on site. This makes them very cost effective to install and can also help minimise disruption for tenants due to the shorter timescales involved.

All Versa pipe & fire sprinkler boxing is FSC® ‘Chain of Custody’ compliant, which certifies that our products are manufactured from sustainable timbers. This helps HA and LA specifiers to meet their compliance obligations under UK government timber procurement guidance.

Versa pipe boxing is part of a range of casing solutions for the housing sector from Encasement.
