Stratis supplied 300 sets of Shadbolt doors and frames in painted finish and American Oak veneer, with fire ratings up to 60 minutes and high performance acoustics of up to 43dB.
This project also required doors taller than can normally be fire certificated, but Shadbolt were able to manufacture these using their unique Shadmaster core doors, which is not only FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) compliant to achieve the highest possible BREEAM rating, but also achieves a maximum deviation in flatness to less than half permitted by BS5277 and BS 5278.
"INEOS Olefins & Polymers UK, the country’s largest privately-owned company and one of the world’s largest chemical businesses, is building a new, state-of-the-art and blast resistant steel-framed headquarters.
Constructing a new office block within a large petrochemical works brings with it a host of unique challenges, the most important of which is to be blast resistant. In the event of an accident involving combustive materials, the new building must be able to withstand any possible resultant blast, all of which requires a number of considerations to be implemented during the design stage."
