Bespoke bronze turnstiles for award-winning 8 Finsbury Circus

A significant number of our customers choose Fastlane turnstiles because they are looking for a turnstile that is unique to them and their environment, reflecting their customer’s brand values and key specifications. One such customer approached us to create bespoke units for their client at 8 Finsbury Circus, the former River Plate House and now a striking redeveloped office building in the heart of London.

To deliver precisely to the end user’s brief, complement the building’s bronze façades and fit seamlessly into the elegant interior, we supplied custom Glassgate 250s in Cannon Bronze, with a special shadow base. These units were installed in the sweeping reception area, which has the feel of an urban art gallery. Custom Passgate 300s were also supplied.

We were pleased to see that the contemporary redevelopment of 8 Finsbury Circus was recently awarded the National and London award for Commercial Workspace by The British Council for Offices’ (BCO). You can read more about this prestigious award and the redevelopment here. We like to think that our beautiful, bespoke turnstiles played a small part in 8 Finsbury Circus receiving this recognition.

Different finish options are available across all of our entrance control turnstiles, with choices for the units including brushed or stainless steel, natural stone, Corian®, or even specialist paint finishes. Working with such an array of different finishes allows us to produce some truly individual turnstiles, whether your brief is for corporate discretion or colourful expression.
