Jewers make an entrance with Security Gates

Specialist door supplier, Jewers Doors recently completed the installation of two pairs of Security Rated entrance gates for the new Whitechapel Station as part of the Crossrail Infrastructure project in London.

Jewers were originally invited to tender for the design, manufacture and installation of these gates by BBMV (Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall JV) in 2016, and the award of the Whitechapel contract completed a trio of Crossrail projects awarded to Jewers; the other two stations being Bond Street and Paddington. Whitechapel Station reopened in August.

The Whitechapel gates are each configured in three folding leaves and are manufactured from bespoke anodised aluminium extrusions with a stainless-steel core. The construction was ultimately tested to an SR3 security rating. The leading-edge leaves are infilled with brass clad stainless steel to provide additional security around the high-security locking system, but also for architectural intent.

When the gates are open, each pair of bi-folding leaves fold into a purpose-designed enclosure cabinet within either side of the centre column between the two gates, then the brass clad hinged leaves close the cabinet to provide a flush and seamless column showing no indication of the gates.

The architectural finish of these gates was designed very much to fit in with the surrounding façade of the newly renovated Victorian station, and certainly look the part.
