- Building Projects: Gaiety Theatre I.O.M
EJOT ® The quality connection
Isle of Man consultants choose EJOT steel to face the Irish Sea
EJOT fastening products have been specified into an interesting refurbishment project on the Isle of Man. The independent Manx Government has stringent building regulations in place, not least those relating to building repair and renovation. So when it was discovered that fastenings used to secure the roof of the island’s Gaiety Theatre were badly corroded and in many cases failing, owners turned to consultant engineers Macowan Collett to solve the problem.
Nick Firth is heading the project for Macowan Collet:
"The Gaiety Theatre and Opera House is one of those architectural gems originally built in 1899 - theatre’s Victorian / Edwardian heyday. We specified EJOT JA1 fasteners because of the high quality of austenitic steel used in manufacture, coupled with its proven corrosion resistance in a sea-facing environment".
EJOT’s JA1 when paired with the correct storm washer will combine to create a perfect fit for the metal panels being used to restore the theatres curved roof. The combination will maintain a visually unchanged appearance which is vitally important in meeting the Isle of Man Government regulations. Work will begin on the Gaiety Theatre in March and you can follow progress here and on Facebook.
