For what is one of London’s tallest residential towers, Siderise, leaders in the development of fire, thermal and acoustics insulation solutions, has provided cavity barriers and perimeter fire seals as part of the glazed curtain walling system for the Landmark Pinnacle Tower.
Built by J Redington for Chalegrove Properties Ltd, the Landmark Pinnacle is located in the business district of London’s Canary Wharf. Consisting of 77 floors including a rooftop, and with a height of 239 metres, it is one of the tallest residential buildings in London. Central to the design of the building is a bespoke unitised glazed façade, created by Schϋco, which allows for stunning floor-height views of the Thames and surrounding Canary Wharf.
In collaboration with façade contractor KFK Croatia, Siderise recommended the CW-FS120 perimeter fire seal to seal the gap between the inside of the glazed façade and the floor slabs of the building. As well as being an effective compartmentation seal against the passage of fire and smoke, the CW-FS120 will also function as an effective acoustic barrier.
Manufactured to a special patented process, Siderise CW-FS system features a pre-compressed and non-combustible stone wool lamella core and integral foil facings. With an overall Class A1 rating and excellent resistance to smoke, the system can offer fully tested and third-party approved options for fire ratings up to three hours.
Involved in projects throughout the world and having manufactured acoustic and fire insulation products for more than 40 years, Siderise offers a large range of tried and tested product enhancements specifically developed for the façade industry.
Rising high above East London, Landmark Pinnacle is a sleek glass-clad residential tower that will make its mark on the cluster of skyscrapers at Canary Wharf. Once again, Siderise played its part in delivering tried and tested solutions which met the client’s passive fire protection and noise transfer requirements.
