In today’s fast-paced world, time is money, and safety is non-negotiable. This project showcases the implementation of fire safety upgrades in a key retail establishment, operating within a bustling Sydney suburb, where it’s crucial to keep the wheels turning while stepping up fire safety measures.
Stock placement and retail activities complicated access to critical structural steel members requiring fire protection. The objective was to upgrade the fire safety standards of structural steel components within the support areas of the store. These areas are hubs of activity, vital for the handling of inventory and essential to the efficiency of the storefront. Any solution had to ensure that these lifelines of the operation—stock rooms, loading areas, and access pathways—remained fully functional.
Trafalgar COREX boards deliver on both counts, offering a fireproofing solution that’s quick to install and doesn’t skip a beat on safety.
