Kladfix Supports Soapworks Scheme

Kladfix Supports Soapworks Scheme

Kladfix, the rainscreen cladding support system specialist has supplied their KX03 fittings to the new £70 million Soapworks scheme in Manchester. The re-development of the former Colgate-Palmolive factory in Salford Quays will offer 400,000 sq ft of office space, including a range of on-site amenities.

The Soapworks refurbishment project has transformed a disused boiler house into a sustainable commercial building which provides 20,000 sq ft of office space. Designed by architect Shedkm, this development was completed in late 2011. Phase two of the project began in January 2013 and is on track to be finished by May 2014. This phase will offer efficient Grade A office space which is just a few miles from the city centre. External cladding contractors, ECL contracts specified and installed Kladfix KX03 horizontal support systems for this project.

“The KX03 is a great quality product which is easy to install and extremely cost effective” said Barry Worrel, Site Manager from ECL Contracts. “We were particularly impressed with the stock that Kladfix holds at its depot, ensuring that we could get access to the product quickly and easily. From past experience with other manufacturers, we have been left waiting for over six weeks for the products to arrive, which can severely disrupt a project. We have great trust in Kladfix and will continue to work with them in the future.”

Kladfix KX03 fittings have been used externally as part of the lift shaft area. These fittings are suitable for concealed or mechanically fixed applications. The system includes the main horizontal rail, adjustable and fixed hangers. The KX03 Horizontal Kladfix channel profiles are fixed to the vertical profiles and the rainscreen cladding is then hung from and secured to the horizontal profiles with the hangers.

Kladfix holds extensive stock to ensure orders can always be met and where necessary, immediate delivery can be provided. All Kladfix cladding systems can be engineered to project specific requirements thanks to the expertise of its technical design support service. This provides architects and specifiers freedom with an almost infinite range of façade appearance and layout options.
