Client: The Rock
Type of works: Italia-100 and Italia-80 steel louvres
The Rock is a 1.6million sq ft fully integrated mixed use development aimed at regenerating the town centre of Bury. The £350million project includes 60 shops, 8 restaurants, cinema, bowling alley, 1,250 parking spaces and 408 residential units.
Lang+Fulton supplied 300m2 of custom-sized panels together with 20 sets of doors to secure and ventilate the street-front elevations of the electricity sub-stations. These were made to fit the structural openings with concealed ancillary steelwork. Italia-100 steel louvred material was chosen for its vandal-resistant properties, in particular that it was impenetrable to any abuse from a foreign object.
2.8m high Italia-80 was also used in the car park to create an internal visual screen separating the vehicle access from a service road.
In addition 160m of 2.8m high Stereo-3 grating panels were installed on the upper levels of the car park around plant areas and emergency exits.
