The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical research centre in London, which opened in 2016. The institute is a partnership between Cancer Research UK, Imperial College London, King’s College London, the Medical Research Council, University College London and the Wellcome Trust.
Hailed as a biomedical research landmark, the state-of-the-art 79,000m² facility is located next to St Pancras Station and was designed by HOK / PLP Architecture. One of the central strategies of the project is to further cancer research – with £160m being donated into the project by Cancer Research UK.
Following a consultation with the designers, we recommended INTRAflex XT entrance matting to effectively remove and retain dirt.
The classic silver profiles and anthracite fibre specified at The Francis Crick Institute seamlessly integrate with the internal aesthetic to provide an effective barrier against the ingress of dirt and moisture.
The INTRAlux Elite polyamide inserts are made from 100% Econyl regenerated nylon fibres and can absorb up to 5.4L/m², allowing highly effective performance even in times of inclement weather and heavy traffic.
INTRAflex XT is our flagship entrance matting product. Made from durable aluminium profiles with flexible rubber connectors, the system is compatible with our full range of fibre, rubber and brush inserts to offer incredible versatility.
