Checkmate Fire were contracted to supply and install a fire-resistant glazed partition wall and door at a leisure centre in Cambridgeshire. Our solution delivered high ratings for fire and smoke resistance and acoustic insulation, while meeting the architect’s requirements for natural light and aesthetics.


Our client, ARW Contracts, were contracted to refurbish the existing leisure centre in Huntingdon as part of a rebrand to One Leisure, and required a fire-resistant compartment wall between the cafe and children’s soft play zone.

To ensure parents could supervise their children in the play area from the cafe, a glazed wall was specified and Checkmate Fire were asked to supply and install a fire-resistant partition wall with doors.


There were a number of different contractors working on the refurbishment over the course of the six-week programme, so it was essential that we maintained ongoing communication with our client to establish planned timescales and arrange a date for the installation that would not clash with or disrupt other works on site.


The architect’s vision for the space consisted of a contemporary partition with large vision panels and double doors that also satisfied the requirement for fire and smoke resistance. To deliver this, we installed an Alufire glazed partition, which benefits from slim frames to maximise sightlines and excellent fire, smoke and heat resistance ratings, along with Alufire glazed doors.

Using fire-resistant glazing for the full partition ensured that parents could watch their children, while allowing plenty of natural light into both the cafe and play area.

And in addition to fire resistance, the Alufire partition also offers the benefit of acoustic insulation, meaning that customers using the cafe will not be disturbed by noise from the neighbouring play area.
