Products specified, Treatment Services applied under ISO 9001 factory controlled conditions and installed
Working closely with Scott Brownrigg Architects , a specification was created utilising a PEFC certified NORclad European Redwood. Koppers MicroShades “Brunnea” treatment was requested to offer a formal warranty on the product for 30 years against rot and fungal decay (out of ground contact), along with a good level of colour stability VS traditional untreated species.
To create depth, a crisp clean closed T & G NORclad 25 x 150 mm NWC 1 profile for all the cladding aspects was selected and 25 x 75/125 mm Planed special profiles for soffit areas for all the apartments in the build programme along with 32 x 125 mm decking products with 2 anti-slip inserts.
As the specification developed the requirement for some elements to be Fire-treated to Euroclass B-s1-d0 (s1 Smoke Production – d0 Flaming Droplets) were also included. This system is fully compatible with the Koppers MicroShades “Brunnea” treated cladding.
The same fire treatment was applied to the backing structure battens which were regularised, pressure impregnated 38 x 50 and 47 x 75 mm.
