We are experts in structurally glazed curtain walling. Which is just as well, as we’ve been much involved with Crossrail, the London transportation project.
We’ve worked on six out of the 40 stations on the Elizabeth line.
These were Bond Street, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel and Woolwich.
We’ve also fabricated very large arches for Paddington station, which will shortly be installed.
It was to supply three elevations of structurally glazed curtain walling measuring over 50 metres in length.
British artist Simon Periton designed an artwork for the first floor curtain walling.
At ground level, the glass features a barcode design.
During the day, the artwork will allow passengers to see inside to the coffered ceiling.
In the evening, the station lights will illuminate the design from inside, offering a dramatic new perspective.
Specialist glass from Hero Glass was chosen for the project, and was created using a silk screen print process in Hero’s factory.
We’re now pleased to feature the finished project.
WSL SG60 system – structurally glazed curtain walling – utilizes grid profiles from the 60mm wide SR curtain walling range. The system is designed as a semi-unitised structurally glazed system. The SG60 range has multi-frame options, with high quality galvanizing. Framing depths are: 40, 60, 90, 140 & 180mm, with 60mm width profiles.
