Skyline fascia soffits from Alumasc Rainwater have been used on the roof of a Manchester fire station, as a unique solution to their training needs.

The station is fully operational and also provides training facilities to both new and existing firefighters, including cadets from 14-17 year olds. The brickwork on the parapet wall of the fire station roof had started to blow, so to prevent further damage and to improve the aesthetics of the building, the parapet wall was recladded. This area is also used in training sessions by firefighters abseiling down the side of the building, so the new cladding needed protection. Station management approached Alumasc for a solution, resulting in the specification of 30 metres of Alumasc’s Skyline coping and vertical fascia systems.

The installation was carried out by Alumasc’s approved contractor, Roweaver Developments and overseen by Architect Warburton Associates of Salford.

Uniquely, the Skyline installation was tailored to provide additional reinforcement on the areas used for training, and to visually differentiate them, these areas were finished with Alumasc’s BBA Approved powder coating in a bespoke red, with the remainder in grey.

Dave Slater, Managing Director at Roweaver Developments, said:

“The installation of the Alumasc Skyline was fairly straightforward, due largely to the proactive project management and teamwork between us and the Alumasc technical team. Samples were provided and design changes were made to make the installation more practical. The only challenge we encountered was having to use specialist scaffolding when installing the Skyline system above an area of the fire station which has a perspex lean-to roof.

“As an Alumasc approved installer, we’re very familiar with the Skyline product and find it easy to install. It always provides a quality, reliable capping solution for our customers.”
