The project.

Steeped in history, Dover Castle has stood on Kent’s iconic White Cliffs for nine centuries. It’s one of the most famous European fortresses, with an important place in British History. From secret wartime tunnels to The Great Tower created by King Henry II, this Kent-based attraction is an iconic and busy hotspot for tourists, sightseers and locals alike.

The challenge.

With just shy of 370,000 people visiting the castle in 2019, the English Heritage site required durable and hardwearing washroom solutions to withstand the demands of such high footfall.

The male and female washrooms needed to be completely reconfigured, to maximise space within the fully accessible facilities.

The solution.

Our ultra-strong metal-framed toilet cubicle range, Fusion, was specified for Dover Castle’s washrooms. The metal frame fixes directly into floor mounting blocks, making Fusion toilet cubicles strong and secure.

The cubicles were manufactured in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL) thanks to its durable and impact resistant properties. SGL is the ideal material for high footfall washroom environments as it’s completely waterproof so can withstand regular and intensive cleaning regimes, to ensure that the highest levels of hygiene are met at all times.

Dover Castle had 34 on-trend laminate colours to choose from for their toilet cubicles. The female cubicles were finished in ‘Merlot’, while ‘Duck Egg’ was the choice for the male cubicles; with all partitions in neutral and complementing ‘Cloud’.

Luxury, strong and seamless vanity units were achieved by specifying contemporary solid surface wash troughs. The carefully composed blend of acrylic polymer minerals and integral moulded reinforcements create a low maintenance, non-porous vanity solution that ensures complete impact and thermal shock resistance. With 12 colours to choose from, Dover Castle opted for modern and minimal ‘Everest’, which complemented both colour schemes in the newly refurbished washrooms.

We are thrilled to have been involved in this washroom project at such a prestigious English Heritage site.
