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 both architect and client.

In addition, seven of the casings were situated very close to glass walls, making normal screw fixing impossible, so the casings were designed to ‘push’ together, which formed a ready made joint that was then bonded to create a perfect finish.

Pendock Radius PLY-CL and PLY-SQ column casings are widely used in a range of sectors where concrete columns or structural steelwork needs to be concealed to improve the aesthetics of a particular building.

Designed for interior use only, the high pressure laminated (HPL) Formica finish is highly durable, which makes them ideally suited to high traffic areas, such as car dealerships, shops, education and other public buildings.
