Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator Window & Door Solutions (WDS) completed a striking and memorable new entrance and reception area at the Ashton 6th Form College. This main road entrance features a series of dramatic fins showcasing the point of arrival and bringing together the old and the new architecture, creating a dynamic and naturally lit space.
Comar 6EFT stick build curtain walling was specified for this project. Comar 6EFT provides a capped curtain walling solution and offers architects the opportunity to maximise large glazed areas as it has the slimmest sightlines available making it the perfect choice for the quirky glazed facade of this new reception and entrance. In a busy education environment, Comar 7 doors sets are a natural choice.
Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding folding, they have been designed specifically for applications where high traffic solutions are required. For safety, the Comar 7 doors were fitted with anti-finger trap stiles, Axim soft touch panic exit devices and Axim concealed transom closers which were hung directly from the Comar 6EFT frame and complied with the Disability & Equality Act 2010.
All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. WDS liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
