We’ve recently had the opportunity to showcase both our latest safety and coating systems by taking on a 6,000m2 project at Hadfield House in Droylsden, based close to our head office here in Greater Manchester.
The client’s site has two large main units, each composed of separate blocks. The project was extensive, and required our Cladding Coatings team to recoat and refurbish roofs, walls and doors, as well as multiple windows (including large office-front windows) across the different buildings.
We also replaced the external rooflights which dramatically improved the lighting conditions within the unit.
As such, consistency and accuracy was vital, as well as ease of access to cause minimal disruption while our team were on site. To achieve this, we used our latest health and safety system: the 3M™ DBI-SALA® RoofSafe Anchor and Cable System. This is a horizontal lifeline system that allows continuous uninterrupted access to all areas of a roof. It can be installed on a variety of roofing systems, including all that we work on and, of course, the roofing across the units at Hadfield House. Spanning up to 15m between anchors, the system provides continuous hands-free access for our trained team. This enhanced safety and decreased project time on the client’s roofs. Read More.
Brian Tulloch, one of our specialist spray painters; Shaun Fennell, an experienced painter, and Jacob Eastwood, our Assistant Contracts Manager, have undertaken updated training to ensure they have met the complete health and safety requirements to use the 3M™ DBI-SALA® RoofSafe Anchor and Cable System. Not only does this uphold our own internal commitments to health and safety for our team here at Cladding Coatings, it also extends this to our clients and provides them with optimal peace of mind.
The project for our client here at Hadfield House allowed our team the opportunity to use one of the latest coating systems added to our portfolio: Advantage. Developed by Alltimes Coatings, alongside Blocksil, Advantage is a moisture-tolerant recoatable system. Not only does this mean it is designed to withstand heavy rainfall, it is single-coat application, meaning it can be applied in damp conditions. As the system is flexible and fully-recoatable, it was the ideal choice for application on the guttering across Hadfield House.
Rigorously tested, we knew the Advantage system would exceed the high-standards our client expected. With the added security provided by our roofing anchor system, we were able to deliver a project securely, safely and in a timely fashion, with minimal disruption and a professional, presentable finish.
