Comprising of rising, shining cylinders with smooth curved balconies, 360 Barking on Cambridge road in London is a truly modern development offering over 291 new apartments. One of the key enablers of its attractive, curved aesthetic is metal bending experts Barnshaws Section Benders, who precision curved 768 steel channel sections to create the sleek balcony structures.

Contractor Alloy Fabweld, the UK leader in architectural metalwork, entrusted this large order to their professional heavy process provider Barnshaws due to the fabrication quality the business has provided in support of previous construction projects. A large production capacity is inherent to Barnshaws, which meant it could service the order effectively. Furthermore, Barnshaws is at the forefront of supplying curved fabrications in steel or aluminium for structural and aesthetic purposes across the UK. This experience meant that Barnshaws was ready to meet the demands of the 360 Barking project.

Barnshaws was required to bend three different measurements of channel section to four different radii, with toe-in and toe-out bends combining upon assembly to create the fluid form of the balcony. Barnshaws was able to process the 768 individual pieces thanks to its wide array of specialist steel bending machines, the operation of which are a closely guarded company secret. As a result, this large order could be delivered within the allotted timeframe to safeguard the 360 Barking project schedule.

Providing additional housing is key to alleviating the housing crisis currently gripping the UK. The 360 Barking development will go a long way to providing more options to buyers in the London area, while also proving that new housing developments needn’t conform to boxy designs. With the help of precision curved structural steel, new housing developments can help enhance the skylines of our crowded cities, while providing the new living spaces the UK housing market requires.
