Warehouse Storage Solutions was invited to tender for EDM’s new state of the art Gas Suppression Room in Leeds. The room is designed to store deeds and other important documents that cannot come in contact with normal water suppression systems. After exploring different options, EDM awarded the contract to Warehouse Storage Solutions to build Europe’s tallest Gas Suppression room.
Gas Suppression Room
The contract commenced with building a twin jumbo stud wall at 15,000mm high externally x 20,000mm long x 10,000mm wide. The internal and external walls were then plastered to ensure that the room would pass the compression integrity test. Once built a small opening was left to build a 3 Tier Racking System with steel mesh walkway decks. By building the structure on 3 levels this meant EDM could offer secure storage areas to their clients as each floor level has its own secure entrance. Outside of the GS Room, a 2 Tier mezzanine floor was installed to access all levels.
