The set of EastEnders
Steel requirements come to us in all shapes, sizes and from some amazing places!
What you might not have known is that we, All Metal Solutions of downtown Hatfield had a big role to play in that episode that was shot last December.
The bridge on the set is made of timber, and painted to look like a full steel bridge .
We were asked to come along and remove part of the bridge and rebuild using steel and steel panels as they wanted to crash a bus into it and make it look as real as possible in the way the bridge would look after and the impact it would have on the bus hitting it.
If you follow this link to the Eastenders’ bus crash it will give you images after the impact, it worked so well that they were able to drive a 2nd bus into the bridge to see if they could get a harder impact. In fact their steel requirements were more than exceeded by our supplies.
And then to complete the job back went the wooden bridge and their set designers made it look if it had been “repaired” by the time it was next viewed .
From our point of view, let’s hope the bridge falls down in the future so we can repair it with real steel!
Our ‘Friendly’ Suppliers
Knowing of our work done previously with steel bannisters for stairs (including one we did for a Ralph Lauren display in Harrods), a supplier asked them whether we could help.
The images seen here are of a stainless steel mirror finish handrail we have just completed.
They wanted to get rid of traditional handrail in their cottage. There is not much natural light above the stairs and the mirror finish on the inside of the steel stringers helps reflect more natural light on to the treads.
These show our versatility, so even if it a simple steel beam or a complex piece of steel that needs manufacturing, All Metal Solutions are here to help you get your products produced to the highest standards and to a competitive price.
