STEADMANS DELIVERS NEW WAREHOUSE FOR
Leading one-stop-shop building products manufacturer Steadmans has supplied materials for a new warehouse at Robert Summers Transport in Leven, Fife.
The national haulage company now benefits from a new 240 sq m storage space, thanks to Leven-based installer J B Developments. The building comprises 565 linear metres of Steadmans’ AS35 80mm insulated panels in ocean blue to the roof and walls. The company also supplied over 400 linear metres of purlins, as well as a host of cold rolled products, including flashings and galvanised gutters.
A range of Steadmans structural material was also used on the project, including eaves beams, struts, ties and sag bars.
Jeremy Beaumont, owner of J B Developments, commented: “We first used Steadmans over 25 years ago and they’ve remained our preferred supplier ever since. We continue to work with them for the majority of jobs, as they’re able to provide us with all the products that our projects require and, most importantly, they deliver them when you need them. This saves us both time and money, and means we don’t get multiple deliveries coming onto site.”
Comprising two outer steel skins with an integral PIR insulation core, AS35 insulated panels are available in a wide range of colours and complement Steadmans’ broad variety of pre-engineered construction products, such as gutters, rooflights and doors.
AS35 panels are manufactured in a quality process certified to ISO 9001:2008, using non-ozone depleting technology. This provides designers with an environmentally-responsible product, with excellent thermal performance and a predicted service life of 40 years. Available in a range of thicknesses, the panels can be specified to achieve insulation U-values, aiding compliance with the latest L2 regulations. The panels are also Loss Prevention Certification Board approved.
Established in 1970, Robert Summers Transport is a family-owned road haulage company, with daily distributions across the whole of the UK. The company also operates storage and warehousing facilities, which allows it to offer an advanced freight handling service.
