Ruskin Square Case Study

Client: Ruskin Square
Location: Croydon
Sector: Car Parking
Products Used: SST-PS

Take one 1960’s rather unattractive concrete car park in Croydon. Mix with a sympathetic architect, and an array of innovative manufacturers. The result is a double award-winning rejuvenation project.

This was a dark, outdated, uninviting car park that lacked effective lighting and hadn’t moved with the times. Situated adjacent to East Croydon railway station, it had the capacity for 565 parking bays arranged over 12 levels. It was underused, and unappealing. A crime hotspot.

EFAFLEX high-speed PS car parking doors were designed and installed at the car park entrance and exits. With their fast-opening speeds, these doors secure the car park facility from unwanted users, reduce exposure, and can lock to secure the premises.

The high-speed doors not only have aesthetic appeal but improved the functionality with their precision engineering. As part of a wider improvement project which included using low energy LED ambient lux lighting, and bold super graphics to improve the user experience, the project won a BPA Award as well as a regional RCIS award.
