One London Wall, London UK
Stainless Steel Sections
Radiussed stainless steel sections from Ancon have been installed by Stirling Stone to support the rain-screen cladding on landmark office development, One London Wall.
The east side of this twelve storey development includes a stairway encased by curved stone panels. The stainless steel sections support the external stonework and are exposed on the internal face to create an attractive, architectural feature. Grade 316 Stainless Steel was specified for maximum corrosion resistance and each unit was polished with a satin finish to meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of the application.
These special stone supports were laser cut by Ancon to precise tolerances from stainless steel plate, rolled to the required radius and welded to form T-Sections. The units were supplied complete with fixing plates and bolts, and delivered to meet Stirling Stone’s installation schedule.
One London Wall was designed by Foster and Partners. The stairway runs from ground level to the first floor and is used by hundreds of people each week. It connects with an overhead walkway that crosses London Wall and leads to the entrance of one of the capital’s top tourist attractions, the Museum of London.
Masonry cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel shelf angle.
The Ancon offices will close at 12:00pm on Friday 22nd December 2017 and re-open at 8:30am on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
