The scope of work included installing both fixed and flexible fire penetration seals throughout to accommodate differential movement between the various elements of the building. We installed fire and acoustic barriers to raised access floors, ceiling voids, above glass partitions in public atriums, impact board enclosures to travellators and air sealing to plenum boxes in the PAX tunnels. Kilnbridge also provided bespoke design solutions to site specific technical installation issues as required by the client.

As a registered company on the Heathrow ID Scheme, we have a successful history of working at Heathrow Airport during its continued regeneration and expansion.
