We are very proud to announce that we are first approved contractor in the United Kingdom for Aithon A90H, an Italian manufactured concrete fire protection upgrade coating product. Please click on our case study for further information on one of our completed projects using Aithon A90H.
An Aithon case study. Europa house. At 64m, 18 storeys, the Europa House is the second tallest non-residential building in Portsmouth. The tower is formed of two parts; the main 12 storey tower standing above a 6 storey car park.
The view from the tower is spectacular, spanning across Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, looking out over Gunwharf Quays, Spinnaker Tower and the historic dockyard. Completed in 1969 the Europa House served as the European HQ for PALL Corporation until they moved into new offices.
The building is currently under conversion by Midas into a student accommodation centre, due for completion in time for the 2017/2018 academic year. Aithon A90H was selected to upgrade the fire resistance of all the reinforced concrete tower slabs. Nearly 1mm of dry film thickness was enough to grant 2hrs fire protection and decoration at the same time, offering a safe and healthy environment to the future occupants.
The spray application was carried out by FST Services
