Promat UK has supplied fire protection and thermal upgrading solutions to the prestigious 7 More London Riverside project, part of the More London regeneration development.

“Promat were a clear choice for passive fire protection due to their extensive portfolio of fire protection products and sales and technical advice throughout the project.” Tim Wright of Fireclad Limited, installer contractor.

Overlooking Tower Bridge and City Hall on the Thames river, 7 More London Riverside is a 650,000 square foot shell and core office development for the new London headquarters of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Over 5000m2 of Promat SUPALUX® calcium silicate board was installed to protect the lift shaft walls and risers from fire for up to 60 minutes.

SUPALUX® Shaftwall is specially treated to provide enhanced moisture resistance and was chosen due to its ability to be installed prior to the building being water-tight. The system was installed by appointed sub-contractor Fireclad Limited and allowed other trades to start their installation quicker, accelerating the entire building programme.

In addition, Promat provided over 1500m2 of Promat TL Board® for thermal upgrading of the underground car park area of the project. Promat TL Board® is a combination of Promat calcium silicate board and phenolic insulation, designed for the thermal upgrading of semi-exposed concrete decks. Due to its thin construction, Promat TL Board® offers minimal height loss and the calcium silicate board provides a high level of impact resistance and light reflectance compared to cementitious substrates.

7 More London is the first commercial building in London with BioDiesel Combined Cooling Heating and Power Plant and offers excellent environmental and BREEAM rating.
