Rhino Doors are pleased to announce the award of a contract to supply specialised, bespoke doors for the new Farringdon Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) station in London. Rhino were awarded a contract by BFK Joint Venture (Bam Ferrovial Kier), who are constructing the new station, with a challenging specification to provide a set of five maintenance access doors for the stations fan rooms.

Commenting on the contract award, Managing Director Stuart Lawrence said “Having worked with the team at BFK over the last few months, we are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract. The recent investment by the shareholders has supported the development into this type of multi-performance door and this is something that is a central theme of the strategic growth plan for Rhino”.
Following a period of design development and qualification testing over the next few months, this door contract is schedule for completion in August 2017.
