Isoclad were approached by a prestigious technology company for assistance in building a data centre enclosure at their headquarters located on the South Coast of England.

It was identified that the existing portal frame design with external sheeting would benefit from an increase in both physical security barrier and fire ratings associated with composite panels, together with their desired U value.

The installation comprised of a split level ground floor with the first floor being supported on a mezzanine.

In total, 5740m2 of LPBC fire rated Panels were used during the build internally and 3250m2 of the FireStop 12-panel system used externally together with 2490m2 of the Thermocore.

Isoclad Ltd manufactures Firestop, an insulated FireResistant Panel that can be used for wall systems, horizontally or vertically and ceilings. All panels are manufactured to an ISO 9001:2015 quality assurance system.

The main criteria for this build was for the end user to be able to enjoy a panel system that offered minimum possible air leakage through the joints or perimeter of the structure as a gas suppression fire fighting system was to be installed.
