A Cooperative Refurbishment

The historic company, with long established ties to Manchester, is well known locally and internationally. However, refurbishment of the Cooperative Bank’s headquarters in the centre of the city presented an opportunity to promote the organisation’s key messages—an opportunity that was exploited to the full by Crossway Scaffolding. The company, now in its 23rd year,  is one of the UK’s leading scaffolding specialists.

Crossway Scaffolding approached Industrial Textiles & Plastics (ITP) to provide both printed and non-printed sheeting for the project. The challenge was to balance three key messages on the printed section of the installation. Powerclad FR Premium Sheeting, digitally printed in-house at ITP’s print facility, was used for the upper part of the installation, with Powerclad FR Standard unprinted sheeting installed on the lower half of the scaffold structure. Both Powerclad FR products are third-party approved to the highest FR standards: LPS 1215 (BRE Global) and TS 62 (Exova Warringtonfire) for both plain and printed sheeting.

Another requirement for the project was an air permeable, FR sheeting, suitable for covering the ground level perimeter fencing on Balloon Street. This was also digitally printed to promote the Cooperative Bank name.
