Educational Facilities
New College Swindon engaged Aleron to enhance its fire protection systems, ensuring optimal safety for both students and staff. This critical project focused on implementing the highest standards of passive fire protection.

Aleron's Fire Protection team, experienced in managing the unique challenges of educational facilities, meticulously installed fire-rated barriers using batt insulation and mastic sealants to achieve the necessary 30-minute and 60-minute fire resistance ratings. These barriers were strategically positioned throughout the campus, protecting key areas such as stairwells, corridors, and utility spaces.

To further fortify the college's fire safety, the team addressed various penetrations, including single cables, cable bunches, mastic, holes, metal pipes, and batt and mastic seal types. They also utilised High Pressure Exerting Mastic (Graphite) and Intumescent Wrap to ensure these openings would not compromise the building's fire integrity in an emergency.

With the successful completion of this enhancement, New College Swindon now benefits from enhanced fire safety measures, providing a secure environment for its academic community. Aleron's proficiency in passive fire protection has played a key role in supporting the institution's commitment to safety and excellence in education.
