A new doorway for St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh

Late last year, BTG Plochingen was assigned by their client BLASI GmbH, Mahlberg, to make an interesting delivery to Scotland. It was a special door construction of almost 6 meters in length and of considerable weight for the St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.

St. Giles Cathedral is one of the most important tourist attractions of the city of Edinburgh in
Scotland. It is located along the famous Royal Mile, known as the main axis of the old city, about 500 meters east of Edinburgh Castle.

The first ever written mention of a church on this site dates back to the year 854. Construction of the current building began around the year 1120. After a fire in 1385 the church was rebuilt in Gothic style, the tower was only completed in 1495. (Source: Wikipedia)

The delivery of the door to this central location, in the midst of a very beautiful but also very narrow and bustling city, required good preparation and well organised cooperation with BTG’s Scottish partner – Currie European.

Thanks to the professional work of all parties involved everything went perfectly and so the visitors to St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh can now enjoy the new doorway.

BLASI GmbH, Mahlberg specializes in the design and manufacture of automatic
door systems, partitions and security peripherals.
