Promat DURASTEEL®, the high performance fit-and-forget fire barrier, is playing a critical role at Westfield London in White City, West London.
The tallest ever Promat DURASTEEL® firewall in the UK is providing protection for power plants within the refurbished Grade II-listed west DIMCO building, a central component of the regeneration. Promat DURASTEEL® is also being installed as part of a major upgrade of London Underground facilities.

Work on the Westfield London development at White City is one of our most exciting jobs to date for Promat UK Limited. "It's testimony to the quality of the product and our technical expertise that Promat DURASTEEL® has rise to the challenge."

Promat DURASTEEL® is a complete passive fire containment system, tested under the most extreme conditions. It's a one -stop solution specifiers know they can rely on. Previous clients include the Ministry of Defence, the London Underground's Jubilee Line Extension and Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5.

Westfield London is a retail. leisure and lifestyle development by the world's largest retail property group, Australian-owned Westfield. The development is a partnership between Westfield and London Underground, whose land has been leased by Westfield. Both are playing a vital role in the regeneration of the area. Westfield has invested £170m into the transport infrastructure for the development and the project reinforces London Underground's ambition to lead the way to a first class transport system for a sustainable 21st century city.

The development is a 46-acre site between Shepherd's Bush and White City tube stations, until recently an industrial wasteland. When it is completed in 2008, the £1.6 billion development will contain the largest shopping centre in Europe along with leisure facilities, a 14 screen cinema, a spa and gymnasium, bars, restaurants, new transport lines and affordable housing. Westfield London aims to become the capital's premier retail, leisure and lifestyle destination.
