Scottish Roofing and Cladding Contractors Procladd (Scotland) Ltd have collaborated with fastener specialist SFS on the eagerly anticipated new build Radisson Red Hotel, which opened its doors in Glasgow on schedule in spring 2018. A striking building situated on the north bank of the River Clyde on the Scottish Event Campus, it is near the SEC Centre, the Clyde Auditorium and the Hydro Arena.

Added value

  • Colour of aluminium rainscreen system matches Radisson Red brand
  • Self drilling SX3 fastener with its unique patented irius® head
  • A4 316 stainless steel fasteners enhanced performance and anti-corrosive properties

A new luxury address
The ten-storey luxury hotel designed by ADF Architects is a £30 million project and will be Europe’s first new build for the Radisson Red brand. The hotel features 176 rooms and an impressive rooftop sky bar with views over the city. The hotel’s opening had been eagerly anticipated by the city’s tourism leaders.

A shimmering red catches the eye
Appointed by main contractor Balfour Beatty Construction, Procladd (Scotland) Ltd commenced work on the 3,500m² aluminium rainscreen system in May 2017, consisting of a Booth Muirie Alucobond Spectra ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) panel system, finished in a distinct Red Brass colour with iridescent “colour shift” properties. The colour stands out as the main feature of the hotel, carefully matching the Radisson Red brand and continually changing nuances with the reflection and refraction of light.

Keith Burrell, CEO and Stuart Tulloch, Managing Director of Procladd (Scotland) Ltd about the collaboration with SFS:

It has been great to be involved in this prestigious project. The main feature of the building is the aluminium rainscreen system which is coloured in a unique red. SFS worked very closely with us to ensure that a perfect colour match was achieved and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”


Being an engineering partner
Following extensive discussion with the customer, SFS provided the fasteners to perfectly match the iridescent red of the Alucobond Spectra ACM panels. Chosen for its superior aesthetics, SFS’s self drilling SX3 fastener with its unique patented irius® head has a low profile and smooth, unblemished appearance that can be perfectly colour matched to any finish.

In close collaboration with the customer, A4 316 stainless steel fasteners were chosen for the application due to their enhanced performance and anti-corrosive properties, helping to extend the life of the building and therefore qualify for SFS’s extended warranty.
