Yorkshire Laser Company Gives Bird Sanctuary New Look

A bird sanctuary in Flintshire has been given a smart new look thanks to Yorkshire’s leading laser cutting and engraving company, Cutting Technologies.

Flintshire County Council had commissioned Rhyl-based artistic blacksmith Heat and Beat to produce a series of decorative balustrading which would cover the space between handrails and the floor, with the aim of protecting the bird sanctuary they surround.

The balustrades combine the local history and images include themes of recreation, maritime, birds, and industry.

Heat and Beat contacted Cutting Technologies to intricately laser cut the images in 316 stainless steel, which was chosen due to the materials corrosion resistant capabilities.

John Wynne-Eyton, CAD designer and sledge hammer operative at Heat and Beat said: “We’ve worked with Cutting Technologies on a few projects and we think they’re absolutely brilliant, particularly when it comes to the fineness of cut we require in our designs.

“The idea behind the design was to bring people’s attention to the maritime and industrial past of the area, whilst they enjoyed the newly developed coastal footpath and observed the teeming wildlife of the Dee estuary.”

Jane Robinson, director at Cutting Technologies added: “Laser cutting is the perfect way to improve a space and these balustrades prove why – they brighten the area whilst also serving a practical need in protecting the bird sanctuary. We’re really pleased we were able to work with Heat and Beat on this project.”
