When considering opportunities to save costs within social housing refurbishment or retro-fit fire sprinkler installation in high rise blocks, as part of a fire safety framework agreement, it’s unlikely that pipe boxing would feature highly, but Pendock products are helping HAs and LAs achieve just that.
The Pendock Profiles range of specialist casings and pipe & fire sprinkler boxing has been a common feature in social housing for well over 30 years and have been used on heating system refurbishments, boiler upgrades and fire-sprinkler installations by most UK social landlords on countless projects.
By replacing traditional site made MDF or wood pipe boxing with pre-formed plywood boxing, significant economies are being achieved across a large number of local authority and housing association projects.
Pendock’s popular TK pipe boxing; MXF fire sprinkler boxing and BC boiler casings are all manufactured in the UK from pre-formed plywood and are also pre-finished in durable melamine, so there’s no need for time consuming on-site fabrication or painting, which saves time and money. Typically, Pendock boxing can be fitted in around half the time of site made alternatives.
The widespread use of Pendock MXF fire sprinkler boxing to conceal surface mounted sprinkler pipework on high rise fire safety improvement projects has helped speed the installation, as they’re so quick and easy to fit using just screws battens and a range of dedicated accessories.
Where exterior pipework needs protecting and concealing, the CHM and MXM metal pipe boxing range has been engineered to enclose building services and other utilities, often as part of district heating schemes, including external cabling and distributed heating system pipework, whilst also providing added protection against accidental damage, theft or vandalism.
