Hollow Sections Project

St Enoch’s Centre at the heart of Glasgow Retail Experience

The St Enoch retail centre project is a great example of the use of cast epoxy intumescent and shows how much better it is compared with secondary cladding.
For cleaners and maintenance staff alike, looking after the Interactive Columns could not be easier. No joints to wipe no difficult maintenance to take out that secondary cladding scratch or scuff and then not very successfully. Interactive columns are the most robust system of fire protection with high decoration on the market.

It is now 11 years Since the opening of the St. Enoch’s Centre The bold columns stretching 20 plus metres into roof space.
