SFS powder-coated fasteners deliver on aesthetics and performance in prestigious retail project

Powder-coated high performance fasteners from SFS have played a key role in enabling leading roofing and cladding contractor Roofdec to create a striking new building envelope for a major extension to the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds.

Situation

The prestigious £13.7m project completed by Morgan Sindall for client Land Securities expands the popular shopping centre with an additional 65,000 sq ft. This space incorporates an 11 screen Cineworld cinema with IMAX technology, numerous restaurants and an extension of both the existing Primark and Debenhams stores.

Solution

Meeting the colour consistency and long-term performance brief across the various elements of the contemporary façade, Roofdec turned to SFS for 40 variations of fasteners, many of which were powder coated in-house to match the different forms and colours of the rainscreen exterior.

Jon Barnes Senior, Managing Director of Roofdec, says, “For all of our prestigious jobs, we choose SFS fasteners for their excellent quality, ease of installation and value for money. SFS provide excellent technical support throughout the design and construction phases of a project and with their production facilities being located in Leeds with inhouse powder-coating, the logistics to get the right coloured product on-site were a breeze."

“With their unbeatable warranty, we"re confident that we will have no teething problems on site and the sustainability of the building is secure for a longer warranty period. Once the project is finished, we can move on to our next project with total confidence in our work."

David Osborne, National Sales Manager at SFS says: “With architects continuously pushing the boundaries of façade design, maintaining the visual appeal of the building envelope is vital, particularly for clients in the fiercely competitive retail market. Our A2 grade 304) or A4 (grade 316) stainless steel fasteners, is the ideal way to ensure a façade retains its integrity over a long service life.“
