Northants Highways, Abington Street, NN1

Posted 22.11.2015

IOTA was contracted to design, manufacture and install three large steel planters, clad in granite, as part of streetscape improvements to Abington Street in the centre of Northampton.

The large planters [dims. L 2700 x W 1700 x H 1000mm] were fabricated from 3mm thick Zintec Steel, polyester powder coated to RAL 9023 [Pearl dark grey], with a cladding of 15mm thick light grey granite with a flame-brushed finish. The rims return outwards, to create a finished line for the granite cladding; and the vertical edges of the four corners are also capped with steel. The granite tiles were cut to size, grouted, and sealed; and the tiles were bonded to the steel with high-strength, high-flex bonding adhesive.
