The contractor immediately turned to Pendock Limited, knowing that the specialist supplier would come up with a solution that could offer both style and substance to the new store. Pendock supplied nine column casings to surround the standard structural steel sections: three oval in appearance and the other six circular. For continuity of style, both types are clad with attractive brushed finish aluminium bonded to the plywood casings up to one metre in height, while above this a RAL 7037 Dusty Grey shade of the company’s Mouse Laminate was specified, rising to ceiling height.
A 15 mm shadow gap marks the junction while ‘top hat’ feature joints with an aluminium insert rise up the full length of the casings.
The 150 mm high toe and 160 mm head collars are also finished in the Dusty Grey laminate.
While it was Edwin Booth that first uttered the family business’ ethos, it was his son John that took the philosophy still further: he rewarded his much-valued staff with a bonus at the turn of the century and in 1920, invited them to become shareholders.
Still valuing its staff today, it seems only right that his company “has always been and always will be, a special place to work.” This principle obviously encompasses offering an attractive working environment.
Pendock’s column casings are all produced to order for clients across a variety of sectors including hotels, leisure, hospital, education and retail. They are available with a very wide selection of finishes and can incorporate lighting or other services.
