Primary Protection For School From Adams Rite

Primary Protection For School From Adams Rite

Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, has supplied locking hardware for a new build primary school, demonstrating its knowledge and capabilities in this sector.

Pupils at Sea Mills Primary School in Bristol have started the academic year in their new school building at Riverleaze. The purpose built site will be home to the school’s 191 students, providing them with excellent educational resources and an attractive learning environment.

Adams Rite worked closely with experienced glazing manufacturers and installers Techniglaze to supply exit devices, entry trims and door closers for the new primary school.

Adams Rite’s 960 Series Concealed Vertical Rod exit device has been used for the schools emergency exits, providing vital panic hardware for student and staff safety, as well as compliance with Fire Safety and Building Regulations. Suitable for aluminium doors, the concealed panic exit hardware uses a rotating top bolt and post type header strike, helping to secure the school building from the outside whilst ensuring a safe and swift exit for building users in the event of an emergency.

In addition, ARC-51N concealed transom door closer have been installed, along with 3082 entry trims, creating attractive single-swing doors and providing ease of passage for students and staff.

Commenting on the project, Spencer Newman, Director at Techniglaze, said: “We have a wealth of experience within the education sector which has enabled us to specify and install an innovative range of durable and cost effective glazing systems at Sea Mills, ready for the new school year. Working with Adams Rite ensures that we are able to tailor hardware specifications precisely to end-user requirements, and their extensive range of quality hardware and excellent technical support give us total confidence in the products that we install.

“The end result at Sea Mills is an attractive and functional school building that provides peace of mind for our client and building users - our products play an essential part in the success of the finished design.”

Richard Lawes, Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, added: “Our level of work in the education market over the past 18months has been remarkable, including some high profile projects and extensive product specifications.

“Working with Techniglaze at Sea Mills has not only enabled us to deliver a diverse mix of products on a tight turnaround, but also to work with one of the most experienced commercial glazing installers within the region.

“The experience we have gained from working with Techniglaze, combined with our continual development in the field of standards and legislation, ensures that we are well placed to advise on and supply products for educational buildings. Not only do our products ensure student and staff safety but our history of working closely with education authorities and our understanding of their structures, budgets and time frames, has enabled us to gain a thorough understanding of the security and performance requirements affecting these developments.”
