YSP Pathway – “Walk of Art 2”
In 2019 as part of Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s £3.6million visitor centre development, AATi were approached to manufacture Cast Iron anti-slip floor plates to construct the “Walk of Art 2”. This, a striking 100 metre long installation designed by Gordon Young, a well-renowned artist known best for his large public art installations. 51 cast Iron plates make up one of the entrance walkways and bear over 10,000 names of supports of YSP, immortalising them for future generations.
AATi Commercial Ltd are lined up to produce 261 panels in total to be installed over several phases of construction, all in untreated cast iron to create a pathway of industrial, weathered/rusted finish which is in keeping with the sculpture park. The names embossed onto the panels are of donors of the centre and are created to form part of a hard-wearing anti-slip surface. The panels feature a hard-wearing surface with encapsulated silicon carbide grit that is an iconic feature on AATi’s anti-slip stair nosing range - as seen on various rail networks including London Underground, TFL, Network Rail and other non-rail commercial developments.
