We understand education facilities are busy places where safety and durability are the most important attributes.
Our experience in the sector, combined with our expertise and technical knowledge, allows us to select the right ironmongery, doorset, access control, door automation and handrail and balustrade products to assist you in delivering your school project.
We will support the design and site teams by ensuring we’re meeting their client’s specification, fire certification and budget requirements. Our goal is to provide solutions that promote a safe, secure and accessible environment.
Our range of fully certified fire doors are designed to meet the high-performance standards and the high resistance to physical abuse found in schools, colleges and universities and ensure the safety of all building users.
From high impact laminate faced doorsets that increase robustness and limit remedial work to integrated finger protection, acoustic rated doorsets and glazed screens allowing natural light into corridors or providing an open learning environment, we can specify and supply regulation compliant doorsets to suit various learning spaces.
Our ironmongery specification will be as robust as the doors. Stainless steel and nylon ranges are suitable for high levels of traffic. Slide track or concealed overhead door closers minimise vandalism whilst allowing easy access for all and aide ease of opening for younger children in primary and junior schools. Hold-open devices can be safely linked to the buildings fire alarm and our range of escape hardware ensures the safety of building users.
The importance of security within school buildings is self-evident. Staff and pupils need to feel safe and secure but also have the ability to move through the building freely. Our dedicated access and autos team will provide a comprehensive access audit schedule and co-ordinate access and egress control. Whether it’s a reliable automatic door solution to facilitate easy entry and egress of users, video entry systems to monitor visitor access, to multi-card systems incorporating vending and sports facilities and library and classroom access, we can specify, supply, and install the correct solution for the school’s needs.
Our fully compliant, continuous handrail and balustrade solutions provide additional safety for students and staff alike. Our polyamide system is available with a 33mm dia for use in schools so that a child’s hand can securely grip it. Our high performance and low maintenance stainless steel system is ideal for high traffic areas and can be supplied with various infill materials for durability and safety while blending aesthetically with the buildings design.
