WL Gore // Case Study

11 metre wall in manufacturing facility

Kwik-Klik has installed an extensive technically demanding temporary wall for WL Gore, makers of the world-famous Gore-tex fabric, at their manufacturing facility in Livingston, Scotland.

The specification of the floor-to-ceiling wall was critical because retaining air pressure conditions within the facility is vital in to protect the integrity and quality of the products produced there.

Seals and insulation were put in place to withstand and maintain an atmospheric pressure of 36 Pascals within the facility, while parts of the outside face of wall are currently exposed to the elements outdoors.

Both Soundmaster and Duraspan panels were expertly installed by the Kwik-Klik team and the full surface area of the finished wall is in excess of 700 square metres.

The contractor is Sir Robert McAlpine and this project is an example of how Kwik-Klik can respond to new challenges and meet the exacting requirements of architects, facility managers and main contractors.
