Works Completed at 112 Ingram Street, Glasgow

Emtec Core & Protect have completed all Structural Fire Protection and Fire Stopping works at 112 Ingram Street, Glasgow, for their client ISG Construction.

This unique Fire Protection project involved upgrading the building’s original cast iron beams and columns to achieve a 120 minute fire rating. This was achieved by extensively grit blasting the cast iron to remove all existing paint coatings and to create a Sa 2 ½ surface profile, before applying a specialist surface tolerant primer, Nullifire 801 intumescent basecoat, and a final custom tinted top seal.

The result is a cast iron structure, dating back to 1898, which is fully fire protected in line with modern building regulations. The custom tinted top seal provides an aged effect in keeping with the building’s listed status.

Core & Protect also used Diamond Drilling and Sawing techniques to create service penetrations throughout the 7 storey building, before fire stopping all voids using Rockwool Ablative Coated Batt, Intumescent Mastic, Fire Collars and Fire Tubes.
