We’ve got Olympic fever at Euroclad

The sun shone down as staff lined up to have their photographs taken with the legend, affectionately known as Lynn The Leap.

We’ve got Olympic fever at Euroclad with anticipation for the Games rising, helped in no small part by the visit of Lynn Davies today.  The Olympic Gold Medallist brought with him his Gold Medal that he won in the long jump at the 1964 Tokyo games, as well as the Olympic Torch that he carried recently.

Lynn is one of 8000 runners who will have carried the flame during its journey across the UK and those runners are signified by the 8000 holes in the torch, which has three sides to mark the third time that the Olympic Games will be held in the UK.

Good luck to all of the British Olympic hopefuls over the coming weeks, we’ll be cheering for you.

National Three Peaks Challenge

Our very own Peter Willard has just completed the gruelling National Three Peaks Challenge in aid of local charity Tŷ Hafan.  Peter is pictured at the summit of Ben Nevis.

The National Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours.  Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. The three peaks are:

  • Ben Nevis (1,344 metres, 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland
  • Scafell Pike (978 m, 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England
  • Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (1,085 m, 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales

The total distance walked is estimated at 44 kilometres or 27 miles with a total ascent of 3,000 metres (9,800 feet).

Tŷ Hafan is a children’s hospice based in Cardiff that offers comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families, helping them make the most of the time they have left.

The implementation of Building Regulations Part L2: 2010 ‘Conservation of Fuel and Power’ has positioned the spacer as an even more critical factor to the thermal efficiency and stability of a metal roofing or cladding system. With the requirements to make buildings more thermally efficient, so the insulation depths increase to meet the desired U-values. As a result the ‘traditional’ spacer may struggle to accommodate increased depths of insulation and could become unstable when dynamic loads are applied to the roof, such as loading sheets out during installation.

Euroclad Quattro Bar & Bracket System

  That’s why we’ve devoted our experience, knowledge and resources to the development of Quattro, a new spacer system that is stronger and less expensive than traditional systems.  Quattro provides better performance at a lower price and it’s also designed to work with any metal envelope construction that requires a spacer system, such as vertical and horizontal wall cladding and built-up metal roofing systems.  Quattro forms an integral part of Euroclad’s Elite Systems and with this new product at the heart of any metal envelope the construction can be confidently described as Quattro Secure.
