Our genius is valves ®

Project Background: Crane Fluid Systems have supplied a range of balancing valves including DPCV, general and public health valves for One Blackfriars, which has been given the nick name ‘The Vase’ due to its shape.


One Blackfriars will be a mixed use development on the South Bank of the Thames, 5,476 glass panels will create the continuous curvature of the building.

When complete in mid 2018 the 50 storey tower will provide 270 homes, a modern 161-bedroom hotel, multiple retail units and a viewing gallery on the 32nd floor for stunning views across London.

A new public square will be at the centre of the project with locally sourced artwork, water features and landscaped areas.
