National Theatre, London

Sector: Commercial Solution type: Ironmongery

The challenge.

The supply of aesthetic ironmongery and complementary signage to the National Theatre on London's Southbank. The client required ironmongery that met GAI practive and relevant British Standards to ensure the highest quality ironmongery was supplied to the prestigious, Grade II listed theatre.

The solution.

The Show Must Go On, Thanks To Laidlaw

Offering a lasting, timeless solution, that also met English Heritage approval, Laidlaw’s Orbis Commercial architectural ironmongery range was used in the recent redesign of the National Theatre on London’s South Bank.

The National Theatre is a Grade II listed building and as such, required a sympathetic approach when it came to the specification of products. Concealed door closers from Laidlaw’s Orbis Commercial range were supplied in a stainless steel finish, providing a more appealing aesthetic that was in keeping with the surrounding décor. Laidlaw’s Orbis escutcheons were also provided in the same finish along with Laidlaw Centurion doorstops and complementary signage.
The Orbis architectural hardware range is fully co-ordinated and wide-ranging, with all products prepared in accordance with the Guild of Architectural Ironmongery (GAI) practice and relevant British Standards. Laidlaw Ironmongery is fully registered and continually assessed to meet ISO 9001 and 14001.

Andrew Cooke, Sales Director for the Southern Region for Laidlaw Ironmongery, commented: “Laidlaw has supplied ironmongery to some of the most prestigious projects in the UK, so we were confident that our work with the National Theatre would be supplied on time and to the highest technical specifications. Part of our philosophy is to work closely with the specifiers to ensure each element is carefully selected and meets the individual performance needs of every project – we pride ourselves on our ability to go above and beyond to deliver on this front.”
