Metal Technology adds ‘silver screen’ to Belfast film studio
Belfast Harbour Studios, the latest asset to Northern Ireland’s burgeoning film industry infrastructure, features curtain walling, window and door systems from leading aluminium systems manufacturer, Metal Technology.
The project includes more than 120,000sqft of studio space, workshops and production offices, and covers 8.4 acres of the overall 340-acre Giant’s Park, a former landfill which has been transformed into the largest development site in Belfast city. Warner Horizon became the studio’s first tenant for the making of the Superman prequel KRYPTON, further cementing Northern Ireland’s position as a favoured location for major film and television productions.
Metal Technology’s System 17 capped curtain walling was used to create the glazed façade office space, with System 5-20D doors and 4-35Hi+ casement windows used throughout the building. All Metal Technology systems are designed to perform seamlessly together while delivering the desired look and performance standards. Used individually or together, they offer complete design flexibility for creative aesthetics with the assurance of value engineered structural, weather and security performance.
