Lift Shaft Fire Protection for Landmark Tower Block

Heron Towers is a prestigious, 46-storey office building in central London, where open lift shafts with fully glazed lifts were installed during its construction. Cryotherm was chosen to provide two-hour fire protection, with a decorative finish, to the lift shaft’s steel frame.

Rockliner casings were the ideal choice and the colour Metallic Silver was specified by the architect.

The project included pre and post-sales site surveys, technical advice, fabrication of casings and support framework and the installation, which was undertaken by our approved contractor, Firesafe Installations Ltd.
