Circa & Quadra Column Casings

pre-formed plywood column casings

Manufacture

Heat and pressure are applied to bond layers of plywood veneers with a finishing kraft paper and compensating balancer to produce a strong and lightweight profile, which retains consistent shape with good rigidity and integral strength.

The manufacturing process ensures that a low moisture content of around 7% is maintained to provide greater stability. To ensure an effective bond is achieved and the material retains high structural integrity, a type MR (moisture resistant) adhesive is used which conforms to British Standard 1204: 1979.

All Circa and Quadra casings are manufactured using FSC® certified and compliant veneers produced from sustainable timbers. Further information is available on our website.

The profiles’ dimensional tolerances can vary by + / - 4mm. The nominal material thickness tolerance is + / - 1mm.

Installation

Circa and Quadra pre-formed plywood casings are extremely versatile and are designed for interior use due to the nature of the materials and finishes used in their construction.

Fixings are concealed by an extruded aluminium feature joint incorporating a colour matched insert.

Fire resistance and spread of flame

The substrate conforms to BS 476 part 7 class 2 spread of flame. When used in conjunction with a fire retardant laminate or lacquer, bonded with an appropriate adhesive system, conformance to class 1 spread of flame is achieved.
