This riverside project lent itself to the properties of our highly versatile Garda range. The stainless-steel LED handrail easily delivered all the expectations, along with both sides of the new bridge and the plaza staircase, eradicating the need for obstructive columns.
Now our Garda asymmetric bathes the 90m wide footbridge in a uniform glare-free light. The walkway is evenly lit to 10lx with an average uniformity of 40%, guiding pedestrians and cyclists safely along a comfortable and welcoming route.
Graeme Campbell, Area Sales Manager at DW Windsor adds, “To co-ordinate with the Garda products we also designed a non-illuminated parapet railing in brushed stainless steel, for further functionality and safety purposes ”.
Garda offers this location extreme robustness. It is constructed to withstand any attempts of vandalism and has a high IP protection rating, offering defence against the elements. Furthermore, to ensure longevity a stainless-steel bracket arrangement was designed to interface with the timber bridge structure, correcting any flex movements due to weathering effects. The finished effect is very pleasing, adding an exciting element to the work completed as part of the flood protection scheme.
