Project Description

Steadmans’ one-stop shop supplies products for new glass manufacturing plant

Leading building products manufacturer Steadmans has supplied materials for a new manufacturing plant at Northern Express Glass in Fleetwood, Lancashire.

Steadmans products were chosen by Poulton-le-Fylde-based Schofield Steel Fabrications, the installer and main contractor for the project. The new 2,100 sq m building, at Northern Express’ site on the Burn Hall Industrial Estate, has been constructed in response to recent business growth by the company, established in 1993.

The roofs and walls of the building incorporate 3,400 linear metres of Steadmans AS35 insulated panels, 80mm and 60mm thick respectively, in goosewing grey. The company also supplied 1,150 linear metres of purlins and over 1,000 linear metres of flashings.

Comprising two outer steel skins with an integral PIR insulation core, AS35 insulated panels are available in a wide range of colours and complement Steadmans’ broad variety of pre-engineered construction products, such as gutters, rooflights and doors.

Simon Schofield, managing director at Schofield Steel Fabrications, commented: “I have used Steadmans for all my jobs since I set up my own business 12 years ago. Its one-stop shop offering means I can get all the products I need from one place and on one delivery, which saves both time and money and helps me to deliver projects as planned.

“Not only do Steadmans deliver high-quality products that you can rely on but the customer service they offer is first class. Any issue or question you may have is quickly resolved and they are happy to give you advice on the best products for your particular project.”
Steadmans’ composite roof and wall panels are ideal for use in a wide variety of buildings, from commercial and warehouses to office blocks and leisure facilities.

AS35 panels are manufactured in a quality process certified to ISO 9001:2008, using non-ozone depleting technology. This provides designers with an environmentally-responsible product, with excellent thermal performance and a predicted service life of 40 years. Available in a range of thicknesses, the panels can be specified to achieve insulation U-values, aiding compliance with the latest L2 regulations. The panels are also Loss Prevention Certification Board approved.
