Providing Surface Spread of Flame fire protection with Product 92 – ESVFR coating

Gables House’ was designed by Chadwick Dryer Clarke Studio, delivering a modernised, low energy home to the modest village of Bartlow, Cambridgeshire. The parish has a population of under 150 and is nestled within charming green countryside, home to a single pub, church, and retired railway station.

To stay in keeping with the local vernacular of the village, the home was designed in a contemporary style that was also sympathetic to the agricultural landscape. Designed with open plan interior space to host village as well as family gatherings. Its roofline materials were created with silver fir timber which required Classification 0&1 – Surface spread of flame.

Product 92 – ESVFR was recommended for use on the roofline of Gables House to protect the silver fir timber substrate. The fire retardant coating provides Surface Spread of Flame protection which satisfies Building Control.

The clients concluded “CDC showed just the right combination of imagination and persistence, leading to an individual home that meets all our requirements and fits into its surroundings. Throughout the project we have benefitted from their attention to detail and their real interest in how we intend to live in our new house. 3 months in and we are VERY house proud!”
