Clark Door creates custom door solution for prestigious London Crossrail project

Clark Door Limited as Acoustic and Fire Rated Oversized Hinged Doors

Whitechapel station is undergoing a radical transformation as part of the capital’s ambitious new Crossrail service. 118km of new track will run from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through 42km of tunnels under London, to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. The railway will be known as the Elizabeth line when services begin later this year, and it is currently Europe’s biggest infrastructure project.

Clark Door designed, manufactured and installed 2 large acoustic doors at the station’s new Durward Street ventilation shaft.  The doors provide a high level of sound insulation to prevent noise from the shaft’s ventilation fans from reaching the station above, in addition to being fire rated to 60 minutes, and capable of withstanding a high air pressure load in either direction.  The doors measure 4.8m wide by 7.2m high, and 6m wide by 8m high respectively, with the largest door weighing in excess of ten tonnes.

BBMV, a joint venture between Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall and Vinci Construction and Crossrail’s major contractor at Whitechapel Station, awarded Clark Door their Supply Chain Quality Award in June 2018.

Clark Door’s MD Andrew Ashley said:
“I am extremely proud that Clark Door has won this prestigious Quality Award, the technical and quality standards we needed to meet were very challenging and the engineering team here rose to the challenge.  Having our prestigious customer give us this Quality Award is a great recognition for the whole Clark Door team from design, to manufacture and installation staff. We are really pleased.”
