The Nottingham branch of Encon Insulation and Nevill Long has become a Fire Protection Centre, adding to the leading distributor’s growing network of fire specialist branches.
Nottingham is one the original branches in Encon’s national network, and the firm says its team is renowned for its specialist knowledge of thermal, acoustic, technical insulation and interior systems including drywall, ceilings and flooring. This latest development means customers can now also benefit from a dedicated team with expert knowledge on an extensive range of passive fire protection products.
The team works closely with customers to advise on projects nationally, ensuring products match the performance they need to achieve the latest fire protection regulations. This includes bespoke solutions from leading suppliers such as British Gypsum, Kemwell Fire, Promat, PFC Corofil, TBA Firefly, Knauf and ROCKWOOL, whislt key product categories include Fire Protection Boards, Fire Stopping products and Cavity Barriers.
Neville White, Business Development Director – Fire Protection, said: “It’s essential our customers have access to a knowledgeable team, able to provide sound and reliable advice on an extremely important area. Fire protection is a vital element whatever the project, and with the increased focus across the industry on building safety, it’s important we invest in developing in-branch technical experts. Growing our Fire Protection Centres reinforces Encon’s focus and drive to provide the best service, range and support in passive fire protection.”
The Nottingham branch relocated last year to a larger warehouse in Bulwell, ensuring improved stock facilities and a wider range from leading brands. Its new location off Junction 26 of the M1 is said to make it ideal for deliveries to sites, to independent builders’ merchants in the East Midlands area, or for customers looking to collect. In addition, the range is available with flexible delivery from stock and with split pallets if necessary.
