Adelphi Wharf Case Study

PFC Corofil Cavity Barriers are the perfect fit for £90 million Salford Adelphi Wharf development

To meet the fire stopping requirements for a major new residential development in Salford, PFC Corofil has provided a proven range of fire-stopping insulation systems. 

On the banks of the River Irwell in Salford and designed by DMS Architecture for developer Fortis Group, the three phrase Adelphi Wharf development comprises over 602 one, two and three bed luxury apartments along with townhouses. This project saw main contractor Beaumont Morgan and sub-contractor Mac Roofing work with PFC who provided the PFC Corofil Open State Barrier COSB 25 and PFC Corofil Cavity Firestop CCFS.

The façade design of the three, eight-storey buildings feature curtain walling and glazing. To seal the 200-300mm void between the floor slab and the external facades and provide both horizontal and vertical compartmentation at every floor level, sub-contactor Mac Roofing installed the PFC Corofil Open State Barrier COSB 25 and PFC Corofil Cavity Firestop CCFS. These products offer a unique combination of effective on-site performance and easy installation, supported by PFC Corofil’s extensive technical support.

The products have been designed to maintain fire resistance by expanding to form a fire barrier between the inner substrate of apartment floors, walls, and the back of the external cladding both horizontally and vertically. Suitable for cavities from 51mm to 300mm wide and to provide up to 60 minutes fire protection, PFC Corofil Open State Barrier COSB 25 comprises an intumescent strip and a rock mineral fibre backer enclosed in a polythene shrink wrap.  Installed vertically at Adelphi Wharf, the third-party certified PFC Corofil Cavity Firestop CCFS is fire rated up to 120 minutes and is suitable for vertical cavities with a maximum size of 600mm.

With this landmark riverside destination in Salford’s River Quarter now completed, PFC Corofil has played its part in delivering proven solutions which meet the client’s passive fire protection requirements and ensure this development is fire safe.
