Client: The Castle Course
Type of works: supplied two sets of 2400mm high double gates incorporating Italia-80 steel louvred panels
The Castle Course is the newest addition to the St Andrews' portfolio of golf courses, opened in July 2008. The architectural brief was for a prestigious clubhouse with a low environmental impact and features a circular design, clad in Scottish sandstone with a copper roof.
Lang+Fulton were asked to supply two sets of 2400mm high double gates incorporating Talia80 louvred panels, which would effectively screen off the service area to the rear of the clubhouse, while still providing some through-visibility for security.
The 3800mm wide sliding gate to the west elevation was specially made as a bi-parting design to withstand the strong wind loadings that could be expected at such an exposed site.
The double-leaf hinged gate was 2100mm wide. The steel gates were hot-dip galvanised and supplied in a polyester powder coated finish (RAL 8011) for maximum resistance to corrosion at a coastal location.
The gates were fitted with high quality euro-profile cylinder locks and anti-lift drop bolts.
