Joiner Garry Malkin of GM Joinery Services has spent 10 months single handily creating the now spectacular 10.5 metre high curved entrance for the Jamia Masjid Farooq E Azam mosque on Stockton’s Bowesfield Lane, Teeside, UK.
Created from 170 individual 140mm sections. The entrance is high pivoting both directional doors on a Dorma hinge system. Housing 10mm tough glass bespoke cut to fit the original design using a CNC cutter to MDF templates. The larger panes of glass weighing in at a whopping 125kg, requiring high quality joinery to carry the load.
The entrance isn’t finished yet, with etched calligraphy to be added to the glass on site. With a total dimension of 3.4m wide x 10.5m high, it’s a very impressive piece of Accoya joinery.
Garry quoted “I have used an amazing timber called Accoya, its sustainable, it doesn’t rot.”
