The Site

ExCel London opened in November 2000 and was the integral component of a huge regeneration project in the Royal Victoria Docks next to the River Thames.

The Phase 2 project had the primary objective of increasing the existing flat floor space by 32,500m² resulting in an incredible one million square feet of flexible floor space. This projected the already highly regarded Excel London in the position of a world class exhibition and conference venue.

Close to London City Airport and with it’s own dedicated station on the Dockland Light Railway the centre manages to attract millions of visitors per year and is a major employer within the local community.

The Solution

Drawing on years of experience, Bolton Gate Company were committed to developing a workable solution in order to fully satisfy the project requirements.

Moving away from the standard ‘single skin’ type fire rated rolling shutter, efforts were concentrated upon manufacturing a new insulated type shutter that would be capable of providing the acoustic rating.

The new shutter design was subjected to a series of rigorous testing, include both fire and acoustic tests all of which were in keeping with the very latest standards.

The testing proved to be highly successful and Bolton Gate Company were pleased to complete their contractual obligations using the very first Fireroll Acoustic provided a compact, hard wearing, yet aesthetically pleasing single shutter solution which was entirely suitable for incorporation into such a highly regarded exhibition and conference centre.
