University College London Hospitals – NHS Trust
Battersea Power Station is at the heart of one of central London’s largest new developments, which will see this vast 42-acre (over 8 million sq ft) former industrial brownfield site become home to a diverse mix of multi use facilities and over 19 acres of public space.
The £9bn project will see the creation of a vibrant new neighbourhood and business quarter for London, serviced by a Zone 1 extension to the London Underground and the restoration of the Grade II listed Power Station.
UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust), situated in the heart of London, is one of the largest NHS trusts in the United Kingdom and provides first-class acute and specialist services.
The client was looking for car park security shutters to be compatible with their car park barrier system, which needed to be see through for safety and to allow natural light and airflow into the space, but still be fully certified.
The client had an old speed door which had been damaged. We were asked to install a new door. There was a complication in so much as it needed to be retrofit with a fire door already in place and it was, obviously, imperative that we didn’t damage the fire door.
Combining Malle grilles with our own housing, motors and additional fixing and operational materials, the multi entrance car parks at Battersea Power Station have matched roller security shutters, all synced to open and close at set times as well as being controlled via integration with their parking entrance system.
Each shutter integrates wireless bottom safety edges and laser safety curtains either side to allow the shutters to be operated remotely and protect it from intruder climbing and vandalism.
‘We are delighted with the finished project and pleased to have played our part in this amazing redevelopment project.’ Jodie Ellis, Sales Director
The roll up high speed door has been tested in working conditions to over 1.5 million cycles. It is therefore suitable for intensive and continuous use applications, in a wide range of industries, including iron and steel, engineering, textile, chemical and food processing. Minimal head and side room are required, and vision can be incorporated as standard. The three phase motor provides rapid opening of up to 1.2m/s, with appropriate safety systems incorporated.
