Hitachi Rail Manufacturing Facility

This £82 million manufacturing facility in County Durham, just a few miles from the birthplace of railways nearly 200 years prior, represents a fantasic investment in UK manufacturing.  Creating over 700 skilled and semi-skilled jobs this state-of-the-art facility has the capacity to build 35 new rail vehicles a month.

Decor Systems supplied and installed solar shading to the open plan office spaces for the main contractor Shepherd Construction.  The 140 roller blinds used the premier decor 370 roller system with manually operated blinds at low level and motorised blinds at high level.

The blinds were produced in our popular Signature fabric range and featured wire guides to prevent them being disturbed by air currents.

The high level blinds featured a alumium fascia profile to conceal the roller and hardware for a neat uncluttered finish.
