St Pancras International - railway station smoke and kitchen extract ductwork
Fire Protection installed smoke and kitchen extract ductwork at the magnificent St Pancras International, one of London's most iconic Victorian railway stations as part of the building's extension and restoration; an incredible £800 million architectural project. A number of factors influenced the use of Flamebar BW11 for this fast-track and demanding project. Fire Protection's expertise in delivering on large and complex developments and the company's in-house manufacturing resource all played a part in the selection of its smoke and kitchen extract ductwork.
When the railway station first opened in 1868, William Barlow's 'train shed' was a spectacular feat of Victorian engineering and held the world record for the largest enclosed space for many years. Nearly 150 years on, high-speed trains are now available from St Pancras International, heralding a revolution in travel between the UK and continental Europe.
Fire Protection's Flamebar BW11 system is at the forefront of passive fire-rated ductwork technology and is used in a wide variety of applications and different industry sectors. Fire Protection was selected to supply and install the smoke and kitchen extract ductwork as part of the railway stations development, as its Flamebar BW11 system will withstand temperatures up to 1133°C from both in and outside the ducts, protecting this important railway station with the best product available.
