Client: Bournemouth University
Type of works: supplied Flexi-Stack System (a sliding stacking door system)
The University has undergone a significant expansion programme to provide its students with the very best facilities throughout the University.
As with any busy working schedule it is important to take a break now and then with a coffee or lunch, and therefore part of this build programme was a new cafe. The client wanted to ensure this space had lots of natural daylight and that during the summer months the cafe could be completely open to the patio and garden areas.
Prefit were able to provide their Flexi-Stack System, which uses a small top and bottom rail with minimal interruption to the glass, which in turn is supported at the head on a track system. At both ends the track splits allowing the doors to slide back and stack against each other, thus giving a completely open frontage to the cafe in summer and a weathered glass wall in winter.
Despite the size of the panels, the smooth operation of the system means one person can move the panels with ease to the stacking area and lock them into position.
