ESG brighten up TCR with a touch of colour

ESG, the UK’s largest independent glass processor, has recently continued its work for Transport for London by supplying the glass for the 2nd phase of the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road tube station.

The station is currently undergoing a multi-billion pound refit as part of the new Crossrail link due to open in 2018.

The entire station was closed at the start of the project and is now reopening one section at a time.

Towards the end of 2014 the new ticket office and Oxford Street entrance were reopened and revealed a, Daniel Buren designed and ESG manufactured, black and white artwork printed onto glass.

Recently the new Center Point entrance has opened to the public and the walls continue Daniels design. 

However for this section of the station, the black and white has been fused together with colour to create striking geometrical shapes. ESG supplied over 150m² of toughened laminated glass split over 200 pieces.

The coloured and black sections of the design were digitally printed and UV cured to the glass. To ensure maximum ink adhesion to the glass each panel was treated to an ESG developed pre-print wash treatment to remove any unseen dirt and oil.

This treatment enables all of the printing to achieve BSI: ISO2409 adhesion standard.

The printing was carried out on 8mm toughened low iron and then laminated, with a white Vanceva interlayer to achieve the background, to create the 17.5mm toughened laminated final product. The final design is already receiving plaudits from the public as to how bright and modern the new look station is.
