Encasement goes underground with refurbished Petit Prêt store at King’s Cross station
To comply with London Underground fire and safety regulations, the refurbishment of Prêt a Manger’s Petit Pret store at King’s Cross station called for the use of non-combustible interior wall linings, which were supplied and installed by Encasement from its Vecta range.
The project was part of Network Rail and London Underground’s ongoing process of improving station facilities for passengers throughout the rail network, while ensuring safety standards are maintained at the highest level.
The Vecta wall lining range is designed to provide decorative, durable and versatile solutions for interior applications, such as retail and commercial projects where style and practicality are key considerations, while achieving a Class O spread of flame was also a key factor at King’s Cross.
Within the Petit Prêt store, Vecta aluminium panels were used to fully line the shop interior from floor to ceiling, which also included the installation of the system’s fixing rails, as well as edge and door trims together with a 100mm high mirror polished aluminium skirting.
To help keep the shop bright in its underground location, the Vecta panels were finished with a white RAL 9010 PPC coating.
