Grain store, Southport

Constructor: Wareings Buildings
Type of works: supply of Cemsix corrugated roofing to steel portal frame grain store.

Cemsix corrugated sheeting from Cembrit is providing the perfect, high-performance roof covering for a newly constructed grain store in Southport. Constructed by Preston-based Wareings Buildings, the grain store is an impressive-sized building designed to be a durable weatherproof storage facility, with a large capacity.

The building is one of a number on Baxters Farm. It has been constructed with a supporting steel portal frame, and measures 48m long, 21.5m wide and 6m in height. The roof incorporates Cemsix crank crown ridges, roll top bargeboard and translucent GRP roof lights.

“The beauty of Cembrit’s colour range is that it covers the shades most building owners like and corresponds with other building materials, in this case the PVC coated steel used on the walls” says Keith Musson, Cembrit’s corrugated sheet expert.

Cemsix sheets are durable, weatherproof and not affected by destructive fungi, vermin or insects, so will not rot or decay. Sheets are available in Natural Grey, Matt Black and 10 attractive pre-coloured options. Ideal for agricultural, commercial and industrial buildings, robust and practical, it requires no maintenance to preserve its strength. Offered in a standard imperial 6 inch profile, it is strengthened with strategically placed polypropylene reinforcement strips. These are incorporated within the fibre-cement sheet to comply with BS and H&S requirements for site safety and fragility.

Cemsix also conforms to the necessary fire safety requirements being a Class 0 surfaced material with an EXT.S.AA rating. Available in a variety of sheet lengths, the Cemsix range also offers a wide range of corrugated sheet accessories including ventilation to satisfy any roof design. Cemsix has full BBA certification, Certificate no. 03/4049 and a warranty is available on request.

Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit offers a wide range of cladding panels, corrugated sheet and natural and man-made roofing slate. Quality levels at group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with many products manufactured under the control of ISO 9001 and British Board of Agrément.
