A new range of decorative compact laminate column casings has been launched by Peterborough based Encasement, which extends its existing pre-formed plywood and metal ranges to provide architects, contractors and specifiers with a durable, tough and highly versatile solution for concealing interior structural columns.
As the new Lamina range is manufactured from high-pressure compact laminate, they are particularly well suited for use in high-traffic areas and are already installed in retail centres, public buildings and leisure areas due to their high strength and durability as well as excellent moisture-, fire- and wear-resistance.
Lamina casings can be formed into virtually any column-casing shape including circles, squares and rectangles as well as special ellipses and other custom designs, while their inherent strength and rigidity enables them to be installed with minimal structural support, making them ideal for applications with large vertical spans.
A wide range of colour options is available, which include standard solid colours, patterned and print finishes, while custom colours and finishes are also available to meet specific project requirements.
Encasements Managing Director, Martin Taylor, commented: With the introduction of the new fire resistant Lamina range, we believe we now have the most comprehensive range of column casing solutions in the UK, which not only includes pre-formed plywood, aluminium and stainless steel, but also GRP and GRG casings as well as our Metza range of specialised fire resistant casings for mezzanine floors.
