Decorative Metal Bulkheads & Column Casings for Tesco Extra, Birmingham

Decorative metal bulkheads and column casings from Encasement, are being used to create an attractive and integrated shop front for Tesco’s Extra store inside the 170,000 square foot Swan Centre retail development at Yardley, Birmingham

Encasement supplied and installed a 100m long polyester powder coated aluminium bulkhead from its Vecta building linings range, as well as eleven ‘Forma’ metal column casings, which are designed to accommodate the vertical guides for the store’s security shutters.

The high level bulkhead runs the full length of the shopping centre’s interior and is manufactured from 3mm thick aluminium, while the 600mm square column casings use a combination of aluminium and textured stainless steel, to provide a decorative and highly durable solution.

The bulkhead and casings are finished in two different colour schemes, with red being used to help shoppers clearly identify the main entrance.
