On the move – decorative casings for transport hubs

When it comes to durable and decorative casings for transport projects, the extensive Encasement range has them covered.

The high volume and constant footfall created by passengers, imposes specific demands on column casings and wall linings, as they need to be durable enough to resist scuffs and damage, whilst also integrating with a building’s design, whether it’s an airport, train station or bus terminus.

Encasement’s Verta column casings and Vecta building lining products have been developed to meet a range of transport sector project requirements by providing a choice of materials and finishes that allow diverse specifications to be accommodated.

For interior use only, Circa and Quadra column casings give increased versatility, as they are available in a range of standard dimensions or can be specified with bespoke sizes and shapes. Manufactured from pre-formed MDF, they are usually incorporate a tough high-pressure laminate (HPL) finish and are regularly specified for transport hubs and related applications for their durability and aesthetics.

In addition, the Forma metal and Polyma GRP column casing ranges can be specified for both interior or exterior use, as their inherent weather resistance, durable materials and exceptionally wide choice of finishes enables even greater design freedom.

Standard sizes are available in both ranges, although they are also ideally suited for bespoke shapes and dimensions, as Forma is manufactured from aluminium or stainless steel and the Polyma range is produced from moulds, which can be specified to suit individual project requirements.

For many transport hubs, the interior walls also require a combination of protection and aesthetics, allowing them to resist accidental damage, provide a long life and minimise maintenance, while also providing a decorative finish in areas, such as waiting rooms, foyers, and check-in areas.

Vecta building linings are manufactured to meet individual project specifications and can be specified in a range of materials, including natural, brushed, anodised or PPC coated metal, as well as compact laminate wall linings, which are available in a wide palette of colours.

These can also incorporate custom images or graphics for unique interior design or branding solutions. We also have our own contracting arm, which enables us to offer a full supply and install service to support contractors.
