Vertical penetrations are weathertight openings where pipes, ducts and cable trays enter or exit a building through a wall.
They provide a route for building services such as gas, water and electricity to enter a building, for waste to be carried away and for data and communications to travel back and forth. Vertical penetrations may also be used for HVAC systems and other plant.
When creating vertical penetrations, care must be given to ensure the opening is structurally sound and properly sealed. GRP weathering systems can help to prevent rainwater ingress and draughts, and maintain the building’s thermal performance.
Complete vertical penetration solutions
Getting vertical penetrations right can be complicated, but the experts at Jones and Woolman UK have extensive experience in designing, building and installing solutions that are both structurally sound and weatherproof.
We design and weather vertical penetrations for complex arrays of cable trays and pipework and can deal with any sort of ductwork or steel structure that is required to pass in and out of the building.
Our flexible and dependable weathering system comprises a fibre-reinforced cold applied liquid that can be used with any type of cladding or building system.
There is no restriction in size, shape or position in relation to the sheet profiles, and the system also allows for last-minute positional changes, allowing for additional services to be added at the last minute.
