Barnshaws tube bending work for the new colourful Redcar pier

Redcar Vertical Pier

Barnshaws Metal Bending was approached by Metafab Solutions to get involved in the Redcar vertical pier project. Barnshaws tube bending project involved us curving hundreds of metres of CHS to 30 different radii.

The radii needed to be formed to particularly tight tolerances in order to fit together to produce a spiral effect. 118 gold, silver and purple curved aluminium panels were fixed to the Redcar vertical pier. This creates the effect of three brightly coloured ribbons wrapping around the entire structure. The Vertical Pier has a stunning design; which from both inside and out, gives the impression that the building unwraps as it reaches skyward.

The Vertical Pier is 80ft tall and costs in total of £1.6m, including grant funding from regional development agency, One North East and the European Regional Development Fund.
