Pillar Wedge has helped a national rugby club tackle the new season in style after it was involved in a major upgrade of the club’s home ground.
The plant partnered with Bolton-based Security Solutions to galvanize new turnstiles at Hull Kingston Rover’s Craven Park Stadium, which will see supporters flood to the ground next month when the new season begins.
The project saw the plant galvanize ten turnstiles for the entrance of the club, each weighing around 450kg, as part of a major upgrade to the stadium and its facilities. The new turnstiles follow the successful construction of the stadium’s news £8 million North Stand, which doubles up as Hull’s biggest conference facility with capacity to hold 260 delegates.
Mark Waters, Commercial Manager at Pillar Wedge, said: “We were really pleased to assist our long-standing client on this project as part of an upgrade project at Craven Park. The stadium welcomes hundreds of thousands of supporters each year and the turnstiles are their first port-of-call, so it is essential they are treated for protection against rust and corrosion.”
Mark Lancashire, Project Manager at Security Solutions, explained: “We chose to galvanize the turnstiles to protect them from the harsh conditions they’re exposed to, and to ensure they stay aesthetically sound for years to come. Once the steel was galvanized, it was powder coated to match Hull KR’s branding.”
