Bespoke steel memorial bench for Megan Biddle on behalf of Thame Town Council.

Barricade fabricated a bespoke steel memorial bench to celebrate the life of Oxfordshire teenager Megan Biddle, who tragically passed away in 2015. We were approached by Thame Town Council to manufacture the bench due to our ability to produce high-quality, fully bespoke steel products. The bench is in the design of a skateboard as Megan was a keen skateboarder.

The memorial bench features a selection of the items that were special to Megan, including music, trainers (sneakers?), beanie hats and a selection of stars. All of the items were to be incorporated into a large skateboard shaped bench and ultimately provide a place for family and friends to gather and remember the life of a remarkable young lady. The design was a collaboration between Megan's friends and family and local artist Michael Gibbs who brought all of their ideas together.

Megan's bench was unveiled on Sunday 3rd June 2018 and will no doubt become a place of friendship, happiness and fun for years to come. It was a great honour to be asked to produce such a poignant memorial and we are delighted with the final outcome.

Although smoking seems to be on the decline, more and more people are turning to electronic cigarettes to beat the cravings. Although they are thought to be far safer than traditional cigarettes, vaping can be an annoyance to some who do not wish to breathe in huge clouds of strange and exotic flavoured vapour. Therefore e-cigs are banned from most indoor areas, just as cigarettes are, and require them to be used in an outdoor area.

New Taylor Wimpey project added to Barricade Fabrications website - Cycle storage compounds & Bin storage enclosures.

Barricade fabricated and supplied a range of bespoke bin storage compounds and Oakland cycle storage shelters to the new Altius housing development in London for Taylor Wimpey. 

We were involved with the initial design of the storage compounds and worked closely with Taylor Wimpey to ensure an elegant, durable and high quality finished product. All products were manufactured in-house by our team of skilled fabricators.

The bin storage compounds feature a 'hit and miss' design providing an attractive and unique finish for the waste storage facility. The lockable gates provide a lockable storage solution and allow for the safe and secure housing of bins and recycling units.

Cycle stands, cycle racks and high quality cycle storage solutions.

Barricade is a steel fabrication and metalwork company based in Wigan, Lancashire that specialises in manufacturing and supplying high quality street furniture and access control solutions. All of our cycle stands and bike storage products are fabricated in-house.

One of the most common street furniture products is the cycle hoop, which can be found along most high streets. The cycle stand/hoop is a cycle storage solution used to secure bicycles with a bicycle lock. Cycle stands can also be used in conjunction with a cycle shelter to provide additional security and weatherproof storage.

The Sheffield cycle stand is one of the most common options and is available in either mild steel or stainless steel. A cycle stand is a simple, strong and durable hoop barrier that allows a bike to be secured to it via a bike lock. - Mild steel cycle stands - Stainless steel cycle stands
