Update on Siderise Group Operations during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Dear Customer,

The COVID-19 situation continues to develop rapidly. In the light of the new Government guidance announced by our Prime Minister yesterday evening, and in order to protect the wellbeing of our people and our customers, Siderise Group will temporarily cease all manufacturing operations from 24th March 2020.

Our ever helpful and supportive staff are still working from home to provide critical Technical Services and Customer Services support.

We will review the Government guidance as it emerges so we can seek to fulfil the essential services we provide to our customers within the new restrictions.

Keep safe and we will come out of this together. Thank you for your co-operation and support at this challenging time.

Yours most sincerely,

Tony James
Siderise Group CEO

Dear Customer,

In response to the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), SIDERISE is closely monitoring the situation and taking all relevant guidance to ensure we respond as efficiently and effectively as possible during this period of uncertainty.

We have undertaken a full operational review within our organisation to ensure we are able to provide ‘business as usual’ for our customers, whilst ensuring that we are doing everything possible for the health and welfare of our staff and their families. Our aim is to deliver a consistent service with very little disruption to our customers for as long as possible during this difficult period.

We are adopting the following measures to ensure our staff, clients and suppliers are kept safe:

  • We have adopted government guidelines for heightened hygiene, self-isolation where needed, and guidance to employees to not put themselves at risk by travelling unnecessarily.
  • Wherever possible we will continue with external meetings online via the Microsoft Teams platform.
  • We have introduced a work from home policy wherever it is possible to do so to ensure the risk of infection is minimised.
  • Where remote home working is not possible for certain individuals in the manufacturing process and appropriate support functions, then particular attention is being made to ensure a safe working environment is provided to all, conforming to government guidance and advice.
  • We are working with our supply chain to ensure our requirements for products and service support are maintained.
  • We are suspending Site Services, however the SIDERISE Inspection App is available (iOS/Android) to record and submit site inspections.

We will continue to keep you updated with the company’s plans and response to the spread of COVID-19.

As ever, thank you for being a valued customer.

We wish you good health during these unprecedented times.

Tony James
Chief Executive Officer

SIDERISE announce it has become an affiliate organisation of the Institution of Fire Engineers

SIDERISE, leaders in the development of fire, thermal and acoustics insulation solutions, is delighted to announce it has become an affiliate organisation member of the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE). 

Founded in 1918, the IFE upholds professional standards within all public and private fire sectors, and assesses knowledge of fire and professional experience. 

Licensed by the Engineering Council, the organisation awards internationally recognised membership grades and fire-related qualifications and registers suitably qualified IFE members as chartered engineers, incorporated engineers, and engineering technicians.

“Affiliate membership with the IFE is further testament to SIDERISE’s continued commitment to internal training, competency, risk management and improvement in fire safety in the industry”, said Graham Laws, Technical Director at SIDERISE. “We are proud to be part of the IFE and look forward to contributing technical information and knowledge to further the advancement of fire and life safety solutions.”

Expo 2020, Dubai, UAE

 As part of  the massive Expo 2020 development in Dubai, SIDERISE has provided their CW-FS perimeter barrier and fire stop system on three stunning, bespoke buildings.  

Situated around the main plaza dome, these themed buildings include the Foster + Partners-designed Mobility Pavilion, the Grimshaw-designed Sustainability Pavilion and the iconic Opportunity Pavilion, a timber stone and rope fabricated building designed by Cox Architecture. 

Wow Hotel, Dubai, UAE

SIDERISE cavity barriers have been specified to provide passive fire protection for the new five-star Wow Hotel in Dubai. Designed by Aedas, the 79-story hotel and residential building is set for completion in 2020.

SIDERISE CW-FS cavity barrier and firestop systems play a vital role in high-rise buildings, mitigating the effects of fire, saving lives and property. When installed correctly the CW-FS cavity barriers maintain continuity of fire resistance by sealing the gap between the floor slab and the façade.

SIDERISE LEVELS OUT THE SAFETY AT SOUTHBANK PLACE

When it came to the fire protection requirements of a £1.3 billion landmark development on the River Thames opposite the Palace of Westminster, SIDERISE, leaders in the development of fire, thermal and acoustics insulation solutions, provided cavity barriers and perimeter fire seals as part of the facade systems.

In the shadow of the London Eye and located above four London Underground tunnels, Southbank Place is a mixed-use development comprising eight buildings clustered around the Shell Centre Tower. Developed by Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar, this exceptional development features 530,000 sq ft of office space, along with around 48,000 sq ft of new retail units, restaurants and cafés and is accompanied by approximately 877 new homes, including affordable housing.   

In collaboration with façade contractors Techcrete, Expanded and Kilnbridge on buildings one, three and four, SIDERISE recommended the CW-FS 120 perimeter fire seal for the gap between the inside of the pre-cast concrete façades and the floor slabs of the three buildings.  As well as being an effective compartmentation seal against the passage of fire and smoke, the CW-FS 120 will also function as an effective acoustic barrier. In addition, CJ-FS linear gap seals were installed on corner vertical joints to allow for structural movement.

The SIDERISE CW-FS system is manufactured to a special patented process and features a pre-compressed and non-combustible stone wool lamella core, and integral foil facings. With an overall Class A1 rating and excellent resistance to smoke, the system can offer fully tested and third-party approved options for fire ratings up to three hours.

Involved in projects throughout the world and having manufactured acoustic and fire insulation products for more than 40 years, SIDERISE offers a large range of tried and tested product enhancements specifically developed for the façade industry.

With this prominent Southbank Place development poised to make an impact in the very heart of London, SIDERISE played its part in delivering tried and tested solutions that have met a client’s passive fire protection and noise transfer requirements.

Aloft, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE

With stunning 360° views of the sea, the new Aloft Palm Jumeirah boasts a striking, colourful interior that stands out from other sleek and muted deigns in Dubai.

When it came to fire safety measures on this landmark hotel, SIDERISE met the client’s requirements  by providing the proven CW-FS perimeter barrier as part of the façade system. While the primary function of the CW-FS is to protect against the spread of fire, it also works as an acoustic barrier which stops noise travelling room to room. 

Royal Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE

SIDERISE’s unrivalled CW-FS products were recently installed at the 46-storey Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in Dubai. Offering a Class A1 fire rating and smoke resistance, CW-FS systems are the market leading solution for fire protection.

Designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates and situated on the crescent of the iconic Palm island, The Royal Atlantis boasts astonishing ocean and city views. The unique curvilinear form includes six building cores which are punctuated by a series of voids which combine to create a series of glass-like boxes stacked on top of each other.

Boulevard Heights, Dubai, UAE

Emulating the high-rise buildings of cities such as New York and Chicago, Boulevard Heights in Downtown Dubai is designed with comfort and style as the first priorities. Connected by a mixed-use podium, the twin-tower complex consists of two 46 and 53-storey buildings, each with one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments, penthouses and duplexes. 

Working with contractor Target Engineering and developer Emaar Properties, SIDERISE supplied bespoke RH ‘Open State’ horizontal cavity barriers in a twin-horn shape to match the cladding profile. As well as being an effective seal against the passage of fire and smoke, the CW-FS 120 will also function as an effective acoustic barrier.

Boulevard Crescent, Dubai, UAE

SIDERISE cavity barriers have been installed as part of the façade system on the Boulevard Crescent residential towers in Downtown Dubai. SIDERISE supplied the CW-FS perimeter fire stop to seal the void between the concrete façade and the floor slabs of the 39 and 21-storey towers.

Designed by architects BSBG and situated in the stunning Opera district, Boulevard Crescent offers luxurious apartments and penthouses in one of the most prestigious square kilometres in the world.

SIDERISE has provided firestops as part of the curtain walling system for the largest residential tower in the UK and what is destined to be one of Canary Wharf’s most iconic and distinctive buildings.

SIDERISE, leaders in the development of fire, thermal and acoustics insulation solutions, has provided firestops as part of the curtain walling system for the largest residential tower in the UK and what is destined to be one of Canary Wharf’s most iconic and distinctive buildings.

At the western end of Middle Dock and close to the River Thames, the 60-storey Newfoundland Tower has been designed by architects Horden Cherry Lee for Canary Wharf PLC and will provide 636 private rented apartments. Central to the diamond-shape design is an innovative and transparent diagrid façade formed by diagonal steel members which are both aesthetic and provide the main stability for the tower. 

SIDERISE recommended the use of its CW-FS 120 firestop to seal the gap between concrete columns and the inside of the façade. By addressing these gaps, the firestops maintain the floors’ fire compartmentation of the building.

Manufactured to a unique production process, SIDERISE CW-FS system features a pre-compressed and non-combustible stone wool lamella core and integral foil facings. With an overall Class A1 rating and excellent resistance to smoke, the system can offer fully tested and third-party approved options for fire ratings up to three hours.

Involved in projects throughout the world and having manufactured acoustic and fire insulation products for more than 40 years, SIDERISE offers a large range of tried and tested product enhancements specifically developed for the façade industry.

With its distinctive and slim diamond shape, the new Newfoundland Tower will stand apart from many of the stainless steel-clad commercial buildings that cluster around the Canary Wharf estate. SIDERISE has once again played its part in delivering proven solutions which met the client’s passive fire protection requirements and ensure this building is fire safe.

When it came to the passive fire protection requirements for the award-winning Baltimore Tower in London’s Canary Wharf development, SIDERISE, leaders in the development of fire, thermal and acoustics insulation solutions, provided cavity barriers and firestops as part of the curtain walling system.

In an iconic design by legendary US architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the Baltimore Tower’s cantilevered and elliptical balconies have created an undulating ‘twisting’ form. As part of the design of the 45-storey residential development, SIDERISE worked with facade contractor Alumet and provided a proven range of systems including their certified CW-FS Curtain Wall Fire Stop system along with the SIDERISE RH ‘Open State’ horizontal and RV vertical cavity barriers.   

SIDERISE recommended the CW-FS 120 fire stop to seal the horizontal gap between the inside of the facade and the concrete slabs of this building. As well as being an effective seal against the passage of fire and smoke, the CW-FS 120 will also function as an effective acoustic barrier.

Manufactured to a unique process, SIDERISE CW-FS system features a pre-compressed and non-combustible stone wool lamella core and integral foil facings.
