Protecting the public
29 April 2013
Having recently undergone a £25m revamp, Haymarket Railway Station in Edinburgh has made full use of Coillte Panel Products' cost effective Smartply SiteProtect OSB3 boards for hoarding. The refurbishment project, which will see the station become a key interchange, has utilised SiteProtect to increase security during the works and to protect the public from the hazardous building environment.
Erected along the platforms, stairs, front of shops and exterior of the railway station, roughly 2km of SmartPly SiteProtect, specified by Morgan Sindall, was installed. The moisture resistant OSB3, which is specially coated, provides a hoarding panel that is said to deliver high performance, durability and protection. The substrate, which is coated with a heavy duty, crosslinked polymer surface treatment, offers a smooth finish that eliminates the need for priming. This means it can be directly painted over with the contractor's own branding or images.
