Shedding new light on station environments

We all know that light is essential to our wellbeing and health. It regulates our sleep-wake cycle, and it can also help with our daily routines. Light helps to keep us energised and increases our concentration levels. A bright well-lit environment makes us feel safer and aids in geographic orientation.

Twinfix have been helping to provide bright, well-lit spaces for over 30 years. Throughout the country, Twinfix have been working their magic to assist the rail industry to transform their stations into safe, inviting spaces which help reduce the stress of travelling.

Twinfix, with their expertise in polycarbonate and roof glazing, is dedicated to developing cutting-edge, safe, quality solutions. This is particularly valuable within the rail network, where the preservation of listed buildings requires delicate and considerate approaches to repairs and refurbishments. Twinfix’s roof glazing products offer the aesthetic appeal of traditional glass while leveraging the benefits of the latest material technology, ensuring that historic railway stations can bask in natural light once again. The positive impact goes beyond enhancing the travel experience, as it also reduces reliance on electric lighting, resulting in lower carbon emissions and a greener planet.

As experts in polycarbonate, Twinfix has mastered the art of replicating the timeless look of traditional glass through their range of polycarbonate products. Even intricate designs like Georgian Wire can be faithfully reproduced. Polycarbonate provides substantial weight savings compared to glass, allowing support systems and roofs to maintain an authentic appearance while complying with building regulations. Furthermore, polycarbonate outlasts glass, resisting UV damage and exhibiting robustness and durability. Maintenance and cleaning become effortless, ensuring that the light will continue to shine through for years to come.

When it comes to ensuring safety and durability in roofing systems, Twinfix has become a trusted name in the industry. Their Multi-Link-Panel Non-Fragile roofing system has been revolutionising the way we think about roof safety.

The Twinfix Multi-Link-Panel Non-Fragile roofing system is equipped with an array of safety features that prioritise the protection and well-being of individuals. The panels themselves are constructed using high-quality polycarbonate material, known for its exceptional strength and durability. This ensures that the roof can withstand various environmental conditions and potential impacts without posing a risk of shattering or fragmenting. The innovative system incorporates a unique Multi-Link design, which securely interlocks the panels, forming a solid and stable roofing structure. This eliminates the risk of panels dislodging or collapsing, even under significant stress or severe weather conditions. With these features in place, the Twinfix Multi-Link-Panel NF roofing system stands as a reliable and secure solution for safeguarding individuals and properties beneath it, making it a popular choice for railway stations throughout the UK.

So next time you’re traveling to work on with your family and the station you’re at feels light, bright, and welcoming, take a moment to look at the light streaming in through the roof. It’s just possible you’re witnessing some of the Twinfix magic.

The Corner, Darvel – Case Study

Twinfix, a leading provider of roofing and canopy solutions, has successfully completed the design, manufacturing, and installation of a 225sqm canopy at The Corner in Darvel. This project, in collaboration with the Darvel & Area Regeneration Team (DART) and Coltart Construction, showcases Twinfix’s expertise in creating striking structures that seamlessly integrate with the surrounding environment.

Twinfix was entrusted with the task of designing a canopy that not only provided aesthetic appeal but also met stringent safety requirements.

When liaising with Coltart Construction on the requirement of the free-standing pyramid canopy, the large size of the structure needed to be considered. Tiered panels were included in the design and a frame manufactured in galvanised steel, which has a high strength to weight ratio was requested. The Galvanisation process protects the metal, while adding colour through powder-coating provides an additional element of protection from rust extending the structure’s life span. The Multi-Link-Panel Non-Fragile roofing system, known for its robustness and ability to transmit natural light, was meticulously integrated into the design, offering visitors a safe and visually pleasing experience.

Twinfix’s skilled team then commenced the manufacturing process, using state-of-the-art equipment and adhering to rigorous quality control measures. The components were crafted with precision to meet exact specifications, ensuring a flawless end result.

The Twinfix-designed canopy at The Corner brings a host of benefits to the project and the local community. It not only enhances safety but also adds to the aesthetic appeal of the town, transforming it into an inviting space. The versatile 225sqm canopy provides a hub for community gatherings, meetings, and local markets, aligning with DART’s vision for the development of the area.

Steve Gillies, Treasurer at DART, expressed his satisfaction with the project, stating, “The Twinfix canopy has exceeded our expectations, providing a safe and visually striking space for our community to come together. We are delighted with the outcome and grateful for Twinfix’s expertise and dedication throughout the process.”

The completion of this project further solidifies Twinfix’s reputation as an industry leader in innovative roofing and canopy solutions. Their commitment to excellence and ability to tailor designs to meet unique client requirements have made them a preferred choice for projects of all scales.
