Chelsea Waterfront is a high-specification new development centred around the iconic Lots Road Power Station which when built in 1904, was the largest power station in the UK and the longest running station until its closure in 2002.
The development includes 711 new apartments in 10 new and reconfigured buildings. Car parking is facilitated by a basement accessed by automatic bi-fold gates.
Having been specified by Terry Farrell and previously having carried out similar projects for Ardmore, Bolton Gate Company was chosen to design, manufacture and install a set of gates which included two automatic bi-fold gates with an adjacent personnel gate.
The main gates provide secure vehicular access (one entry; one exit) being activated by card reader and the adjacent hinged gate allows selected personnel access by key fob.
The gates were constructed from an RHS frame with vertical tube infills at 125mm centres. A polyester powder-coated finish in Basalt Grey was applied to blend in with the surrounding structure.
The whole system incorporates a full range of safety devices including photocells and wireless safety edges to comply with Health & Safety regulations.
