Technical Details

MULTIFORM CONSTRUCTION

Glass Reinforced Polymer composite using a variety of core materials dependant on clients requirements for insulation, fire ratings, security ratings and attenuation.
Structural reinforcement is included as required due to enclosure size and specific location. Housings are designed with a life expectancy in excess of 30 years.

Please Note: We have worked with a number of standards that aren’t listed above, should you have a particular requirement please contact our Design Team who will be able to help.

INSULATION

Standard construction has a U-Valve of 2.2W/m/°C. Higher levels of insulation are offered to meet client specifications and to meet building regulation u-values of Walls: 0.35W/m/°C Roofs: 0 25W/m/°C.

FIRE RESISTANCE

Morgan Marine offer half hour, one and two hour fire rated constructions, all have been independently tested. Self extinguishing resins can be used offering both 30 min and 60 min protection on surface spread of flame.

SECURITY

All Security rated products are LPCB approved and tested to LPS 1175 by BRE, they include:

Single and Double Steel Door Sets with multiple lock options to SR 2,3 and 4

Single and Double GRP Door Sets with multiple lock options to SR 2 and 3

Steel Enclosures to SR 2, 3 and 4

GRP Enclosures to SR 2,3 and 4

Security rated ventilation options.

SOUND ATTENUATION

Standard construction offers a nominal 24dB acoustic performance over centre band frequency range 31.5Hz to 16kHz.Other standard levels of attenuation offered are 30, 32 and 35dB nominal acoustic performance.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL

Ventilation options are offered based on clients individual requirements of either heat to be dissipated or air changes needed. Information required is external ambient temperature, maximum
internal allowable temperature and heat to be dissipated. After calculations ventilation will be offered as either natural, forced or as Air Conditioning.

ELECTRICS

As NICEIC electrical contractors all installations are carried out in accordance with current IEE regulations to BS7671: 2011, Zone 0, 1 or 2 installations are also available. We can install customer's equipment if required.

EXPLOSION RELIEF

Explosion relieving roofs and panels are used to safely discharge the effect of the ignition of an inflammable mixture from within an enclosure, notably for British Gas or Regional Electric Companies. Tests have been successfully completed for both types of explosions and these conform to the relevant specifications.
