Emirates Stadium


Emirates Stadium at Ashburton Grove, London became the new home of Arsenal Football Club in June 2006. The new 60,000 seat stadium was completed ahead of schedule and on budget by Main Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine.

Scope of Works

Powershield designed, supplied and installed over 800no doorsets including Powershield Personnel & Powershield Fire and bespoke removable crowd-segregation screens.

The Works

All doors and segregation screens were designed by Senior Draughtsman Graeme Devenney using Autocad 2002 with Mechanical Desktop version 6 and Auto SM. Following the drawing approval process the construction information was seamlessly downloaded to computer numerically controlled manufacturing equipment within the factory using CAD/CAM software.

Doors and screens were finished with a polyester powder coated finish to corporate colours selected by the client. The paint was applied in-house using a fully automated powder application system.  All hardware was factory-fitted to ensure correct installation and make certain that doors were despatched complete, ready for site installation.

Site installation was completed by directly-employed door fitters with typically 2 men on site at any time. Despite the large volume of doors and low number of site personnel the sub-contract was completed on time and to the complete satisfaction of both Main Contractor and client.
