12mm Magply serves as fireproof sarking for new build thatched property

IPP Ltd

Widely specified for its fire resistance and all round stability in the cladding build-up to apartment blocks as well as a render backer and sheathing board, IPP’s highly versatile Magply boards have been employed by a regional developer as a fireproof sarking board beneath taditional thatched roofing for a development in a beautiful Dorset village. The 12mm thick version of the high performance MgO material was selected by Poole based Charlew Developments, to comply with the project architect’s performance specification for the solitary thatched roof building on a nine house scheme in the village of Owermoigne, near Dorchester. Reflecting an aesthetic ethos similar to that adopted for Prince Charles’ landmark Poundbury development on the outskirts of Dorchester, local planners made the inclusion of a thatched property a stipulation of planning permission for the development and the exterior to the four bedroom dwelling also includes panels of flint-work between the bands of handmade brick which form the window surrounds. The thatch was installed by specialist roofing company, RV Miller from Keynes Wareham in Dorset. The overall roof construction saw the 12mm Magply boards being nailed down across the main rafters and covered by a breather membrane before battens were secured in the conventional manner, running across the pitches. The authentic reed thatch was then laid up the pitch and shaped around the eyebrow dormers at the roof edge and verges. “The project architects, Anders Roberts, specified the use of a one hour fire resisting board to be installed beneath the thatch covering. I researched a number of different board types before talking to our merchant, Travis Perkin, which recommended the Magply product. We have found the boards very straightforward to cut and fix before covering them with the breather membrane and battens.” Site agent for Charlew Developments, Jules Peach Backed by BDA Agrement certification, Magply MgO boards present a fire-safe and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plywood or OSB products. The different thicknesses of panel are also widely used as a substrate board for flooring and flat or pitched roof build-ups as well as render systems.

FIRE RESISTANCE AND STABILITY EARN REDCLIFF QUARTER SPECIFICATION FOR MAGPLY UNDER ZINC

FIRE RESISTANCE AND STABILITY EARN REDCLIFF QUARTER SPECIFICATION FOR MAGPLY UNDER ZINC

IPP Ltd

Fire performance, chemical composition and resistance to pull-out loads were all factors considered by one of the leading national contractors in the selection of Magply MOS boards for the cladding build-up on four apartment blocks in Bristol.The development in the historic dock city’s Redcliff Quarter conservation area is being led by Galliford Try for developer, Redcliff Quarter MLP with the designs of Lyons+Sleeman+Hoare Architects combining new build structures and elevations with retained Victorian brick façades.The initial description of the building was for phase 1 (114 apartments + 14 duplex). Redcliff Quarter Phase 2 is the construction of 118 apartments which is a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with 4no retail units along cross street. The facades are a mix of Recon Stone Panels, Brickwork, composite cladding and El-zinc Cladding.The cladding contractor is responsible for installing all of the El-zinc cladding on the project, utilising VM Zinc clips to attach the very distinctive and lightweight material over a sub-structure of steel framing, the 12mm thick Magply boards and a breather membrane.Due to the El-zinc material only being 1mm thick added support was required to prevent the capping from bending out of shape. Traditionally this would be ply, however due to the requirement for all materials to be A2 fire rated in buildings over 18mm ply was not a suitable product. Magply was used in its place due to its property’s.The Externals Manager for Galliford Try, Martin Sykes, commented: “The main area of use for the Magply boards on this project is within the build-up for the ‘picture frame’ type feature around the main entrance, where we have secondary steelwork and Metsec frame to build out from the main structure. However, because the chosen cladding material is VM Zinc you have to be very careful about the chemical composition of what it is in contact with, to avoid degradation.We considered a number of different board types to meet the required fire-rating, but Magply’s PH level proved to be more compatible with the zinc, while the manufacturer was also able to supply satisfactory data on pull-out tests, to ensure the stability for the cladding brackets. The boards, covered by the breather membrane, are also being used beneath all the capping on the building, mounted between the galvanised supports, enabling the contractor to complete all their installation work.”Backed by BDA Agrement certification, Magply MOS boards present a fire-safe and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plywood or OSB products. Additionally, the unique production process keeps the chloride content to just 0.01%, enhancing both stability and long-term durability. The different thicknesses of panel are also widely used as a substrate board for the direct application of proprietary render systems, as well as for flooring and flat or pitched roof build-ups.
GT Yarmouth - Beattie passive - Retrofit

GT Yarmouth - Beattie passive - Retrofit

Intelligent Membranes

An old block of apartments in Gt. Yarmouth getting a low carbon Retrofit for a higher, cleaner living standard and reduced energy bills. Passive Purple has been used externally on this huge scale block of apartments. with no margin for error and tricky details throughout, a liquid applied airtight membrane was the only way going forward. The building was being insulated externally and getting a whole new façade from render to aluminium panels. With the residents still inhabiting the building this had to be done quickly and easily with maximum results. Being a liquid applied airtight membrane, any cracks, gaps, and service penetration leaks in the existing building fabric quickly became thing of the past. That and the hundreds of Panel brackets being installed to support the new façade going on, this Retrofit had multiple penetrations and tricky details. Making good of the building fabric and awkward brackets with a near on impenetrable adhesion, Passive Purple made fast work of this great conversion, impossible for any other method. Being in liquid state on application, Passive Purple can be applied onto most/any surface (See data sheets for more information) and will find its way into all the unseeable tiny gaps and cracks all buildings will undoubtably have. Like this old pebble dashed façade, any rough, uneven and awkward areas are no longer an issue, our products simply flow into these areas. We also have the fibre reinforced Passive Purple brush, used on this job to prepare the brackets by filling the larger gaps between that of the bracket and the existing wall and also the large penetrating bolts. A huge win and demonstration of the power of liquid products by Intelligent Membranes.

Renovation stripping out the building completely and rebuilding the walls, Passive Purple® was applied in between the connections of the internal side of the external walls which were a combination of masonry, timber, and steel frame. The ground floor ceiling was removed exposing the warped old timber joists with cracks in the surrounding brickwork and mortar. This was given attention to detail using Passive Purple® Brush to seal above an airtight foam to guarantee the airtightness of this major air leak zone before the final spray coat of Passive Purple® airtight membrane was applied. Passive Purple® was also used to seal window and door linings, ready for the new triple glazed windows to go in. Passive Purple® was sprayed on all the walls and ceiling. This is an ongoing project that still is awaiting an air test, the client is looking to hit 2.5 ach and installing MVHR.

Rooftop Apartments, Gisburn Rd, Tottenham, Passive Purple

Intelligent Membranes

We all know warm roofs and joist zones are huge areas for air leakage and extremely hard to solve this problem. This warm roof structure for luxury apartments retrofit fit onto an already existing block of apartments in Tottenham was typically the icing on the cake for detail and performance. With the hand cut roof providing the client with multiple skylights, dormers and 360-degree turrets, this was going to be no easy task of getting the airtightness and vapour control secure and correct in a traditional method. Step forward Passive Purple! Rather than just covering the issues, once the hand cut roof was finished, the 220mm roof rafters were filled with a layer of spray insulation supplied by Lapolla UK. The dormers, skylights and turrets were then given some attention to detail with Passive Purple BRUSH before the final application of Passive Purple (spray applied) This gives this roof a complete airtight vapour control with performance like no other and getting around all of them circular details and angle’s galore this was just another simpler, easier way to get the job done right and guaranteed! Passive Purple liquid application saves the client and user so much time and so much less strenuous labour.
