Tenmat wins Queen's Award for Innovation 2012

Published:  20 June, 2012

MANCHESTER: Tenmat has been at the forefront of passive fire protection product development and manufacture for many years, and in 2012 has been awarded the Queens Award for Innovation.

Tenmat's products allow potentially complex firestopping procedures to be undertaken in a simple and effective manner, saving onsite time and ensuring that the work is done to a fully certified standard. What makes Tenmat stand out from the crowd is the amount of fire test data which is supplied with each product - this encompasses all of the popular construction variables and gives peace of mind to the installer and building controller.

Tenmat sees the close partnerships with its customers as being the key to ensuring that the products produced exceed expectations which in turn will ensure growth in the future.

This Queens Award is particularly focussed upon the constant innovation of the range of Tenmat's downlight, pipework, ventilation duct and wall cavity fire protection products. These products are renowned for their effectiveness in reducing the spread of fire in buildings and this superior performance is seen to have improved fire safety worldwide - a major contribution to receiving the award.

Many of the Tenmat products have been shown to offer considerable energy saving through the improvements in building airtightness and insulation levels, which has led to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and has also been a contributing factor in receiving the award.

Tenmat looks forward to building award winning partnerships with new customers and growing those with its existing customers.
