Midtown Cycle Vault, Bloomsbury, London
About the Project
Brocklebank 20/5 architectural pre-crimped wire mesh installed as security screening at the underground Midtown Cycle Vault at Bloomsbury Square, London. Described as "the safest place in Midtown to leave your bike" the mesh panels provide a secure barrier between a private residential car park and a public cycle facility in the exclusive Bloomsbury Square area of London. Vertical strip lighting and diagonal bracing bars provide a contemporary design in keeping with the surroundings.
The Stainless steel AISI316L mesh pattern was modified for this project to aperture 25mm x 5mm. The mesh was fabricated into 50cm x 50cm hot dipped galvanised frames with powder coated bracing bars in Orange RAL 2003.
