Project: Bangor Leisure Centre
Products Supplied: Structural Balustrading, Walk On Glass Floor
Macspec specialises in designing, manufacturing and installing precision engineered staircases, balustrades and handrails. The company works with a broad range of materials including metal and glazing and their focus is to produce items that look great and function perfectly. Project Manager Philip Tallon has worked with Diamond Glass for many years. “The service is great and the team at Diamond Glass is easy to deal with – that’s what you need on a project.”
Aesthetics and Safety Considerations Addressed
A recent project involved the re-development of Bangor Leisure Centre and Macspec chose Diamond Glass as the supplier of all the structural balustrading for the project. This was a high-profile project locally and the centre has a high footfall, so as well as the need to appear visually appealing, safety considerations were a central focus. The safety glazing supplied included 19mm single toughened glass and 25.5mm toughened laminate. The walk on glass floor was fabricated to the required specifications, delivered directly to the site and off-loaded with a HIAB truck mounted crane.
Philip says “The walk on glass floor was delivered in perfect condition and to the agreed spec. From my perspective what’s delivered on a job is either right or it’s wrong.”
Since installation this robust balustrading has performed as expected. “We’ve been happy with the product and the people so we’d certainly work with Diamond Glass again.”
