IMS Launches SkamoEnclosure

Insulation machining specialist, IMS, has partnered with technical insulation systems manufacturer, Skamol, to bring to market a new fireplace enclosure solution which is said to deliver time-saving advantages over traditional methods of enclosure construction.

Utilising the SkamoEnclosure A1 non-combustible board, IMS stocks the complete solution to create fireplace enclosures which are suitable for stoves, inset and cassette fires. Said to be an extremely lightweight yet robust board, SkamoEnclosure Board reportedly enables the enclosure supports and framework to be constructed without steel studwork or blockwork. Whatsmore, the system reportedly does not require special fixings or tools which means the enclosure can be constructed using regular screws and SkamoEnclosure Glue. This simplified build method is said to achieve overall cost-savings on a project and greatly reduce construction times.

Once the enclosure is created, the completed construction is primed using SkamoEnclosure Primer and finished with SkamoEnclosure Smooth Plaster to provide a paint-ready surface.

Commenting on the launch of the SkamoEnclosure, Deb Wardle, business development manager at IMS, said: “We continuously look to innovate with our existing product range to bring to market solutions which deliver practical benefits for the industry. Fireplace enclosures are increasingly popular but have traditionally been time consuming to install. By designing a system using SKamoEnclosure Board we’ve demonstrated that efficiencies can be achieved, that as an A1 classified product maintains the highest performance standards.”

The SkamoEnclosure will be showcased at the Hearth & Home exhibition (June 10-12, 2018) in Harrogate. IMS will be exhibiting with Skamol on Stand B24.
