We are delighted to announce that we have moved to a larger, dedicated facility in Rubery, Birmingham, combining offices, manufacturing, assembly and warehousing. 

The relocation comes as a result of our phenomenal growth over the past few years, which has seen significant investment in our workforce, the introduction of new products, and the growing demand for our products for construction projects throughout the UK and Ireland.

Expanding our operation to larger and more user-friendly offices and warehousing facilities means we can now continue to progress with our plans for further sales growth and product development as well as providing enhanced sales and technical support and increased stock levels to our customer base.

“The relocation of our operation to Rubery is the start of a new and exciting phase for Kemwell Fire. We’ve outgrown our existing separate office and warehousing premises, and by bringing together our whole operation to one specialist developed site will help us to remain at the forefront of the fire protection industry. It will also enable us to provide even higher levels of service excellence for our customers. We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and loyalty.”

Kemwell Continue To Innovate With Latest Launch | Kemwell Corex A1

Kemwell Continue To Innovate With Latest Launch | Kemwell Corex A1

Kemwell is proud to expand our product offering once again and bring Kemwell Corex A1 to the UK and Ireland markets.

Kemwell Corex A1 is a non-combustible gypsum board for applications where superior fire performance and innovative solutions are required, such as structural steel protection, shaft walls, partitions, and ceiling linings.

A building with a steel frame system should withstand fire, without losing its integrity during the fire, at least for long enough to evacuate people from the building. To achieve this, the load-bearing steel columns and beams must maintain their integrity at high temperatures for long periods without losing their carrying capacity and integrity. Steel encased with Kemwell Corex A1 can maintain their load-bearing capacity for up to 240 minutes.

The core of Kemwell Corex A1 is reinforced with special additives to enhance fire resistance and moisture resistance meaning the board can be installed prior to the building becoming weather-tight. Both sides of Kemwell Corex A1 are covered with a completely non-flammable fibre glass mat, meaning the board is classified as A1 non-combustible in accordance with EN 13501-1.
