Wrightstyle, the advanced steel and aluminium glazing company, has won a contract to work on a sixth Crossrail station.
This will see the company fabricate bonded doors and blast-rated screens for Craft Interior at Paddington station.
It will also be supplying a range of blast and fire-rated doors, screens and curtain walling to Bond Street, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel and Woolwich stations, in what will form the £14.8 billion Elizabeth Line.
The line is estimated to fully open at the end of this year, increasing London’s rail capacity by 10% when fully operational.
The new line will feature 40 stations, including ten new ones, with up to 24 trains running every hour in both directions on its 100 kilometre route.
Wrightstyle has partaken in a number of recent high profile transportation programmes, both in Britian and overseas, including a railway hub in Hong Kong, the Dubai metro and the famous front of London’s King’s Cross station.
John Woodcock, contracts manager at Wrightstyle, spoke about how the company’s appointment to the sixth station shows how designers are building with the highest-possible levels of safety in mind.
“We have worldwide experience in the sector, and our international testing regime provides absolute assurance on the strength and compatibility of both our glazed and framing components,” he said.
