Case Study

Case Study
To manufacture the wing struts and the gearbox for a pair of wings which were installed in the Orchid House at Kew Gardens. These wings are to prove shade for the orchids through the summer. The sets of wings are automatically moved up or down according to the weather conditions.
Based upon designs provided by Channings the development of the units was undertaken by Meddings Engineering. With 6 struts of over 9 metres length on each wing, together with the wing fabric the gearbox had to achieve high torque to be able to swing each wing up to it desired position. This work was completed through 3 design changes in 4 months. It was the partnership of the two companies which provided the solution.
