Coal Drops Yard

AATi Commercial supplied over 1500 metres of cast metal anti-slip stair nosings for the Coal Drops Yard project situated in the heart of Kings Cross, London.

Historically this site was used to store coal (London’s only available energy source at the time), the coal originated from South Yorkshire and was trans-shipped into narrow boats along the regents canal, records indicate around 8 million tonnes of coal was processed per annum. On the discovery of electricity the use of coal was challenged and electricity prevailed driving the coal sheds into deterioration.

This newly renovated public space, exhibits a unique kissing roof amongst Victorian architecture, and is situated close to Regents Canal perfect for a nice walk, followed by a spot of lunch and some retail therapy!

Various staircases are perfectly poised throughout this re-developed retail quarter providing access at all levels to the shops and restaurants. With the vast amount of heavy pedestrian footfall expected, the AATi stair nosing product ref: SN9/55 in Cast Iron (zinc plated black) was chosen.
