MJ Ferguson, YHA Thameside, Rotherhithe

Injecta Fire Barrier successfully installed injectaclad in just 14 weeks

The brief

Injecta Fire Barrier were approached by MJ Ferguson to assist with a fire stopping project at the Thameside YHA.

The requirement was to install cavity fire protection to the existing building to conform to the new Fire Safety Regulations as set out in the Fire Safety Act 2021. To do this by traditional remediation methods, would require full removal of the existing façade taking many months and causing much disruption to the business. 

In 2022, the Government announced an agreement with developers to contribute a minimum of £2 billion towards cladding remediation on their buildings of 11 to 18 metres. This resulted in many building owners seeking cost effective solutions that are regulatory compliant and cause minimal disruption to protect their buildings from fire.

Injecta Fire Barrier were able to offer a far more cost-effective, less invasive and swift solution.  By using the patented Injectaclad system designed and developed by leading fire professionals, we can reinstate the fire-resistant performance of rigid and flexible wall and floor constructions.

The Solution

Our Injecta Fire Barrier installation team promptly attended site spending just 14 weeks from start to finish, installing Injectaclad both horizontally and vertically into the buildings cavities.

The Result

The works were successfully completed on schedule and the cavities are now meeting the updated Fire Safety Regulations. Using this patented system not only allowed our client to minimise disruption to their customers and save on costs, but also to minimise the impact on the environment, by dramatically reducing the levels of noise and dust pollution along with volume of waste to landfill, when compared with using traditional remediation methods.
