Possibly Ireland’s Most Famous Gates
We are fortunate to be involved in the current project being carried out by John Sisk and Sons at Diageo’s Guinness Brewery in Dublin.
The project is to provide a new brewing and fermentation facility and associated infrastructure within the the present St James Gate complex.
During Project Phoenix [http://www.johnsiskandson.com/ie/news/articles/john-sisk-son-win-supplier-award-diageo] as it is called, we have carried out a number of sub contracts for fencing, railings, the manufacture and Installation of a a fire escape and are currently installing security bollards in the internal car parks, but the most interesting was the replacement of two of the iconic gates along Victoria Quay.
During construction Sisks used them as site access points but they were in a poor condition and could not be repaired.. The replacement gates which we manufactured in our factory [https://www.irishfencing.com/gates-and-access-control#video-introduction-to-gates-and-access-control] in Ballyfermot had the steel frames treated with our Plasgalv® Coating (full Hot Dip Galvanising and Powder Coating) [https://www.irishfencing.com/our-finishes] which we would expect to be rust free for at least 50 years without maintainence, and then had the timber added by Glenn Wood, Tullamore [http://www.glennwoodtullamore.com]; An initial sealing treatment was applied in factory and the gates were finish painted and sign written on site.
You may notice that the original gates in the top photo differ in shape from the new ones having a downward curve wheras the new version is radiused upwards, the branding of the Guinness name and logo have also undergone a change.
If you have a project large or small which require Fences, Gates Railings or specialised steel structures we have over 41 years experience in their design and manufacture and would be delighted to share our knowledge or provide you with a quotation or site visit free of charge.
