Happerley England - Lock 29 Banbury
Security Direct was approached by the architect for Banbury Borough Council, looking for a solution to a new market project at Castle Quay Shopping Centre. The project was called Lock 29 which began as an idea to breathe new life into a canal side destination in Banbury, utilising abandoned space that would bring great benefit to the local community and beyond. In addition to the venue featuring diverse and exciting food and drink artisans, there will be a casual pop-up cinema for secret cinema clubs and educational activities, space for events which will be open to the whole community and an edgy independent retail offering which binds it all together.
Lock29 is a completely unique, creative space, which pays homage to its hometown, while reaching out to visitors from far and wide.
Happerley England have occupied the space, which is a fast-growing food and drinks organisation, set up by farmers to empower farmers and create a level playing field for all food and drink businesses to validate, protect and promote the provenance value of their product while allowing the customer to make an informed choice.
Security Direct worked with the team to create a security solution on securing these pods. We fitted custom made CS10 "Deluxe" retractable grilles to each of the pods. We worked with the architect to ensure that those pods were designed to hide the grille stacks and ensure we had sufficient steelwork to install the security grilles into. These retractable security grilles, were the ideal choice as they were more cost effective than Roller Shutters and didn't require the same servicing and Maintenence that a roller shutter would require.
