Boundary Mill, Colne

Case Study: Custom Stainless Steel Fabrication

Boundary Mill is the largest mill retail outlet store in the UK selling branded clothing and household goods at vastly reduced prices. They have stores in Colne, Grantham, Walsall and Shiremoor. They contacted us having found Butler Sheetmetal online and realising our job shop was within walking distance from their new flagship store at the end of the M65 in Colne.

Boundary Mill required stainless steel planters and stainless steel balustrades for their new three storey retail outlet in Colne. They wanted various custom sizes dependent on their location at the front of the building and floor, and had to be designed and fabricated accordingly. Boundary Mill also needed Butler Sheetmetal Ltd to install the planters on-site.

Both John and Matt consulted with Boundary Mill to determine the locations of the planters, the sizes required and the type of weather conditions they’d be subjected to. They wanted large, round planters for the entrance to the store on the ground floor to go round the building struts, which needed to be able to withstand wear and tear from their customers. They also wanted long rectangular planters as well as squares to display on their balconies. It was decided to baton and weld the inside seams of the planters for extra rigidity to prevent bowing when filled with soil and for them to be fabricated from 304 or 316 stainless steel by means of protection from the elements. Installation on site needed them bolting down for security as well suitable drainage.

You can look through the images below to see the different types of stainless steel planters in-situ we fabricated for Boundary Mill. They still look as good today as when they were first installed.
