Mare Street Studios, Hackney London
Mare Street Studios is a open plan community and business work space. When they needed to be able to secure the bar and coffee shop they only had one cost effective option due to the size and the shape of the bar area.
A shutter that stacks away completely
The obvious answer was our Flexiglide sliding shutter range, wanting to keep the area as open as possible we fitted our Vision Guard shutter. The finished shutter was over thirteen metres wide and three metres high.
Custom built pocket with door
A custom built pocket in a wall houses the complete shutter when it's not in use. When the pocket is clsoed with a door, you wouldn't even guess there's a security shutter installed here.
Manufacture and installation drawing
Like with every shutter installation certain details (such as weight, support structure, height, stacking area, etc.) need to be well planned in advance. The drawing below shows the plan we work from when building and installing the shutter.
Mare Street Studios in London has become a modern shared office centre with a beautiful open-plan nature. HVP's FlexiGlide shutter fits in very well and wer'e very happy we've been able to contribute to the project.
