Case Study 01 - Coronation Street Set, Salford
Completed - January 2013
Value - £26,000
Contractor - ASKAM
Fire Protection Specialist’s where brought in to apply intumescent protection to the structural steel works on the new Coronation Street Set in Salford, Manchester.
After the 2 and half years taken rebuilding the famous cobbled street, it was important that in the eventuality of a fire the structural integrity of the street would not be compromised.
The intumescent coatings work by swelling in high temperature situations, shielding the steel beneath from the heat and flames.
FPS worked tirelessly on the set for 12 months, ensuring that all 2000sqm across 7.7 acre site where protected. FPS worked cohesively with the other contractors to guarantee the timely completion of the project and to FIRAS standards.
