Approximately 550 Leaderflush Shapland Designer doorsets and screens were specified for the new £40million Joseph Chamberlain College in Highgate, Birmingham which opened recently.
The Designer range of flush doors, doorsets and screens has always been the heart of Leaderflush Shapland, giving specifiers the freedom to choose numerous wood veneer, PVC, paint and metal finishes. Doorsets for this project were supplied to meet 30 and 60 minutes fire resistance as well as up to 38 RwdB sound reduction. Crown Cut American Maple veneer finished with Hygienilac, providing antimicrobial protection, and laminate facings in Grey and various hues of Blue and Green were used.
