Fabrication & Fitting Service
contract was for Girling & Kind who were the primary landscaping contractors
London Borough of Merton.
The work was overseen by both
Merton Groundwork and
The National Trust.
Just Metal supplied the gates and railings for the front, side and rear of
I also supplied the knee rail for the refurbishment of the water fountain.
Galvanised metal edging was also supplied by Just Metal for use as a border
for the grass edging behind the main entrance brick wall.
The origin design of the posts for
the wall top railing called for the use of 50mm box section.
National Trust wanted a more Victorian design and asked Just Metal to change
the design to 50mm solid square section. This gave a crisper edge, much more
in keeping with a Victorian theme.
To give the caps at the top a crisper edge, Just Metal further suggested
fitting them by drilling & tapping so that no welds would be visible.
The gate hinges
were made in the journal and pin technique to match those on the many
Victorian gates found throughout London.
Finally, the finials on the top of the gates were hand forged by
Just Metal to create the finish required by the Merton Groundwork design.
