Coverclad Services was contracted to supply and install Kingspan wall cladding in Wrexham, directly on behalf of a poultry company. The wall cladding installation was part of phased works, creating new client facing head offices with an aesthetically pleasing and highly professional frontage.

Our specific task was to install Kingspan MR1000 panels in anthracite grey to the 40 metre front elevation and to one 20 metre side elevation, together with purpose made barge flashing, pipe boxing and pre-formed corner panel. Overall the job took seven weeks to complete with between three and five of our specialist Kingspan wall cladding installers in Wrexham on-site during the works.

Office building in Wrexham with glass entrance

Galvanised steel grid system fitted to front elevation

The existing render to the building leaned back slightly to allow for rain water to cascade down, with a large forward curved drip detail at the bottom. This meant installing the galvanised steel grid system for fixing the composite panels to was quite challenging because the client wanted to achieve a flush finish.

Side elevation galvanised steel grid system with powered access vehicle

The wall cladding steel top hats were measured specifically with full details around the windows, doors and stand-off brick columns, and cladding packers were used where needed to achieve the flush finish. The grid system stopped short of the bottom to allow for the deflection drip detail and base sill (to be installed).

Installing Kingspan MR1000 composite panels to side elevation

Installing the Kingspan MR1000 composite panels in anthracite grey to the side elevation. The vertical lines sit in the centre of the underlying brick columns, conveniently and naturally breaking up the visual design of the building. Once the panels are installed, plastisol coated top hats are inserted to fill the vertical gaps. The white area is protective covering not yet removed, which helps protect against scratches and solar degradation during installation.
