Keyfix shortlisted for Irish Construction Excellence Award
Posted on 16 Feb 2022
We’re proud to announce that Keyfix has been shortlisted for an Irish Construction Excellence award in the ‘Construction Product Innovation’ category – thanks to our Non-combustible Cavity Tray (NCCT) System. This innovative ‘Fix & Forget’ system is a practical solution to provide DPC protection over lintels, masonry supports, soffit systems and other elements in the cavity such as fire barriers.
Paul Turney, Technical Manager at Durkan, first heard of Keyfix providing a non-combustible cavity tray/cavity tray lintels when Keyfix carried out a presentation for their Quality Director and engaged with Keyfix through their subcontractor Landmark Brickwork. From this point on, and many meetings later Durkan specified Keyfix NCCT on all 3 blocks of their Southmere project:
“Durkan specified Keyfix’s NCCT system for a number of reasons. The system is efficient in every way. It requires no sealant or mastic, utilises A1 fire rated stainless steel, and the pre formed trays make it very quick to install. I would recommend Keyfix cavity tray/lintel to anyone who has a need for non-combustible materials within their facades.”
