Type of works: supply and installation of Richard Burbidge FUSION® Commercial stair balustrade.
Richard Burbidge FUSION® Commercial stair balustrade has been installed at The Red Lion in Stockport, which has been entered for the annual Restaurant and Bar Design Awards.
Part of the Robinsons chain, The Red Lion bar and restaurant has recently undergone a full refurbishment. The revamped pub serves quality British food, complemented by an extensive wine list and cask ales. The refurbishment has seen The Red Lion pub divided into nine areas, each with its own atmosphere and purpose.
Specified by Innex Design Ltd, FUSION® Commercial stair balustrade was installed throughout the pub, to provide support for customers on small steps and create attractive barriers between various areas of the restaurant and bar. The modern mix of brushed nickel balusters and connectors with minimalist oak handrails makes it ideal for contemporary settings.
Chris Catelani of Innex Design Ltd comments: FUSION® Commercial is one of the most attractive systems Ive specified for some time and were very pleased with the finished result. The Red Lion has been entered for a prestigious Pub Design Award, which is testament to the overall interior design scheme and the quality and finish of the products installed.
As with any aesthetically pleasing product, functionality must not be overlooked. The Richard Burbidge system is independently strength tested in line with UK Building Regulations, providing an important safety barrier for staff and customers, so the product not only looks great but its also fit for purpose.
FUSION® Commercial is tested by FIRA to withstand loadings of 0.74kN/m, making it suitable for use on shared stairwells in public and residential buildings.
David Richards, Specification and Trade Marketing Manager for Richard Burbidge, says: Our FUSION® Commercial system has recently been specified for a variety of applications, from large leisure resorts and upmarket housing developments to local community projects. The Red Lion is another string to our bow, showing the versatility of the system.
Plus, as its available off-the-shelf, its ideal for one-off or smaller scale developments, as were able to supply a quality product on a quick turnaround at a more competitive price than many bespoke systems.
Easy to install, all FUSION® Commercial timber components are supplied pre-cut and pre-varnished, eliminating the need for time consuming finishing. In addition, the brushed nickel balusters are also supplied pre-cut and ready to fit.
Richard Burbidge offers a wide range of resources and added-value services for specifiers and architects, including RIBA approved CPD seminars on stair balustrade, CAD drawings, two online planning tools and downloadable specification guides. Plus, the company also offers a bespoke planning service, providing fully priced solutions for individual project plans.
