Pendock – The art of concealment

The decorative finishing of building interiors and exteriors has evolved into something of a fine art – in some cases, literally. Yet for most commercial structures, whether they’re offices, public buildings, schools or hotels, for example, they rely on a wide range of off-the-shelf or bespoke products to provide the finishing touch. One company that has been a key player in this particular construction discipline for more than 30 years is Telford based casing and enclosure specialist, Pendock. Initially focusing on its pre-formed plywood boxings, used to conceal pipework and cabling, Pendock’s began expanding its range in the early 1990s to meet a growing demand for decorative architectural casings solutions. The company has since become well known in this field, particularly for … Read More »

Thinking inside the box with Pendock

Ultimate columns for the ultimate driving machine

An angled column casing installation and the need to maintain the advanced engineering and technological reputation associated with BMW, were just two of the challenges that Pendock faced at Worcestershire based dealership, Robert Stern BMW. A total of 27 square (PLY-SQ) and circular (PLY-CL) section casings from the Pendock Radius range were installed at the dealership to conceal structural columns, which we manufactured from pre-formed plywood and finished in Formica high gloss white laminate with contrasting black inner collars. As several of the PLY-SQ casings needed to be installed at an 80 degree angle, precision cutting and installation on-site by a Pendock recommended installer was a critical part of the process to ensure the final fit and finish met the demands of … Read More »

Pendock Radius column casings add style to NEC piazza

We take a retrospective look at a prestigious project where Pendock has made a difference to building’s aesthetics and where the solution has stood the test of time. In 2006, as part of a three-year long venue improvement programme at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre, more than 40 bespoke column casings from Pendock were installed in its newly refurbished piazza. The decorative casings, from the Pendock Radius range, were specified by Seymour Harris Architecture as part of the £10.5 million phase-one project, which concentrated primarily on the refurbishment and upgrading of the main piazza area’s interior and facilities. Three different styles of casing were used on the project, which was carried out by main contractor Laing O’Rourke. The building’s original 39 square section … Read More »

Installing fire sprinkler systems in social housing? Cover them with Pendock

The significant increase in the number of retro-fitted fire sprinkler system installations over the past few years, particularly in high rise residential blocks, is testament to the commitment from social housing landlords to help protect residents and improve fire safety. While the scope of safety improvements recommended in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire are far reaching and go well beyond sprinkler systems, it’s widely accepted that they make a significant contribution to tenant safety and security, while also providing peace of mind. With the speed of sheer numbers of installations taking place, many contractors have turned to Pendock to provide a quick and easy method of boxing in the orange surface mounted sprinkler pipework from our ‘Pendock Profiles’ MXF range. … Read More »
