Corus provides building envelope for steel storage
Corus Panels and Profiles has supplied 10,400m² of Trisomet® 333 System – its new insulated composite roofing product – for the construction of Rainham Steel’s new steel storage facility in Scunthorpe.
The new facility has the capacity to hold 75,000t of steel – enabling Rainham to more efficiently service the UK, European and world markets. The project’s cladding contractor used the Corus’ 80mm and 60mm Trisomet® 333 System for the roof and walls of the building in Corus’ Colorcoat LG pre-finished steel.
Mark Clemson, Commercial Director Building Envelope, Corus Panels and Profiles said: “Perform-ing to the highest standards of thermal performance and air-tightness, specifying Trisomet® 333 System can enable a finished building to achieve an air tightness performance as low as 3m³/hr/m² as well as a BREEAM excellent rating. Furthermore, with its environment-ally friendly zero ODP insulation core, the system can be fully recycled once the building reaches the end of its useful lifespan – properties which contribute to making this one of the most sustainable building envelope systems currently available on the market.”
