Encasements column casing range is now the most comprehensive available in the UK and not only includes pre-formed plywood casings, glass-reinforced gypsum and compact laminate solutions for interior applications, but also aluminium, stainless-steel and glass-reinforced polymer (GRP) casings, which are resistant to weathering, for exterior projects.
Interestingly, Encasements Forma metal casings and Polyma GRP range are also widely used in interior applications, where the scope of finishes available, particularly in the Forma range, provides specifiers with an even greater scope of options and can be specified with diameters from 250 up to 1,000mm.
Recent projects, such as a prestige reception area at Merchant Square in Paddington, West London and a new library extension at a private school near Richmond, illustrate the versatility of Forma metal column-casing solutions. At Merchant Square, the column casings are finished in brushed stainless-steel and are 800mm diameter, while the casings used on library project are 6m high and integrate with a glazed floor and stainless-steel balustrade.
Encasements Circa and Quadra ranges of pre-formed plywood column casings still provide specifiers and contractors with an unrivalled selection of finishes, which includes plain-, laminated- or real-wood veneers. Also, these products are also available manufactured from FSC-certified plywood to help specifiers and contractors comply with sustainability codes and environmental procurement policies.
Circa column casings have also been used on a further project in East London. The 300mm diameter column casings are installed in Europes tallest residential building, The Landmark at Canary Wharf, which stands 140m high.
Encasements Managing Director, Martin Taylor, explained: Our entire range of column casing solutions has been configured to provide the widest possible choice as well as being easy to specify, which is why we offer next working day delivery as well as some very specialised solutions, such as the Metza range, which provides up to three hours fire protection for mezzanine floor columns.
