New Standards in Stadium Security

CLD Systems recently embarked on a project to showcase its expertise, according to the company, in offering tailored and durable security solutions to protect a range of environments including data centres, manufacturing and warehouses, sporting venues and more.

Tasked with transforming the home of West Ham United FC at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s London Stadium, a stadium that hosts Major League Baseball London Series fixtures, the company delivered enhancements to the stadium’s infrastructure.

The company’s primary role in the project was to provide a robust fencing system that would enclose the perimeter of the baseball field. The system served as an integral structure to form the field build but it also had to withstand the impact of athletes running at full speed and occasionally climbing the fencing. The fencing system was also designed to provide support for the installation of padding, ensuring player safety and acted as a platform for advertising and marketing purposes.

The London Stadium project involved concurrent activities including the reconstruction of stadium seating, protection of the football pitch and athletics track and the creation of a new artificial baseball field. The project required 144,000 square feet of turf, 345 tonnes of clay and 4000 tonnes of aggregate.

Completed within an 18-day timeline, the stadium was decommissioned and made ready for the next event in under five days.

“We are proud to have been part of the MLB World Series at the London Stadium project, contributing our expertise in security fencing to enhance the safety and integrity of the venue,” said Russell Wells, Director, CLD Systems. “The collaboration with our esteemed partners and stakeholders has allowed us to set new standards in stadium security, ensuring a seamless experience for fans and players alike.”

CLD Systems’ involvement in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s London Stadium project highlights its commitment to setting new standards in stadium security, the company said. The collaboration between the company and its stakeholders played a crucial role in delivering the stadium transformation.
