Scolmore aids Church conversion
The stunning restoration and conversion of a 189 year old former church into luxury studio apartments in the centre of Bolton has been completed, and products from Scolmore’s Mode wiring accessories and Flameguard lighting products have been installed as part of the transformation.
The new Grade II listed Trinity Court development - on the former Holy Trinity Church – comprises 82 fully-furnished luxury apartments which are divided across three sections – the Church, the Knave and the Gatehouse. The entire church exterior has been kept virtually intact, including its highly ornate stained glass windows, with apartments created entirely within the original shell, as well as many others in a bespoke modern building at the back of the church.
Fire- and acoustic-rated downlights, from Scolmore’s lighting range have been fitted in all the apartments. The downlights incorporate Scolmore’s Flameguard system which offers an integrated fire and acoustic barrier and a full 90 minutes fire rating. Located inside the top of the downlight and around the outside of the body, the FlameGuard® seals are manufactured from an intumescent material that expands in the event of fire. As the material expands it fills the ventilation holes in the top of the downlight and also seals the ceiling cut-out.
The electrical sockets installed in the apartments are from Scolmore’s Mode range - a stylish, contemporary and flexible of smooth profile wiring accessories.
