Main contractor: Bowmer & Kirkland
Sub contractor: ISD Solutions
Distribution is about efficiency and staying ahead, and by providing a fastener system designed specifically for the controlled environment market, our DrillFast fasteners were essential in helping save specialist contractor ISD Solutions three weeks off a nine-week program.

Although an unseen product, the low-profile fastener and super-flat washer combination allow one-step installation with no need to seal over each fixing to waterproof it, in this case saving one-third of the predicted project time.

The building’s bright colours make it stand out from others of its kind: we were able to help with that too, providing powder-coated fasteners exactly matched to the Apple Green and Cabbage Purple used.

“We compared these fasteners to previously used types, and found your products were a vast improvement...our workforce were highly impressed with the fixings...the unique coldstore fixing system helped save 3 weeks off a 9 week programme."”
