Boyco fittings get full marks when Verulam School is hit by fire
13 August 2012
When a major blaze swept through the sports pavilion at Verulam School in St. Albans, only one thing was left standing in the changing rooms � the Boyco fittings. Even after the roof had fallen in and flames had gutted the single storey changing block, the Boyco benches and peg rails were still firmly in place.
The suspected arson attack at the Sandy Pit Lane site caused extensive damage and the entire pavilion needed rebuilding. As a fire fighter at the scene explained "The pavilion was made of wood and concrete with a tar and bitumen roof so it was pretty flammable".
