Westgate has provided a partition to create a 75m x 27m enclosure at the Royal Mail North London Distribution Centre. The very use of the train terminal structure means that it is wide open at one end and closed off at the other leaving it open to the British weather.
To complete this project, Westgate provide the following solution:
Anchorwall double skin insulated panels were connected to the floor, up to a height of 3.6m, above which Flexiwall FR630 translucent fabric was placed, which allowed in natural light.
The Flexiwall material was then profiled to fit the shape of the curved roof at the top of the terminal and suspended using existing steel work to minimise additional building requirements.
A gap of approximately 1 metre was left open at the top of the partition, to allow for sufficient air to flow into the enclosure and to prevent potential for pressure build-ups. This requirement had been established during the site survey and wind load testing.
An outside wall was lined with Hoardfast Flamescreen Zero 35mm panels to help increase insulation in the building, and also to enhance its overall appearance.
Two Fastflex Impact rapid action doors, as well as hinged doors and sliding steel Anchorwall doors were also installed to accommodate the arrival and exit of vehicles and pedestrians
