This project demonstrated the challenges of the modern marketplace. A rising population, facilities at capacity and financial constraints mean doing more for less is key.
To achieve this, Manchester City Council focused on extending and upgrading, rather than complete new builds. The budget was tight — so door safety had to be cost-effective without compromising quality.
Safehinge Primera met every challenge at Ashgate and Crossacres head-on. For all new doors, our safe and strong integral Alumax was fitted. For refurbished areas, our hard-wearing retrofit Alumini was the perfect solution. The result? Visual consistency throughout the newly combined school — and complete protection for any curious little fingers.
Kinellar Primary School is one of the latest schools to be completed in line with Aberdeenshire Council's 'nationally-recognised' primary school building brief. The brief uses a kit of parts as the basis of every new build school within the Council - and it includes our integral finger guards!
Worcesters Primary School initially requested 20 integral finger guards as part of an extension. They were so happy with the quality and sleek aluminium finish that, the following year, they ordered 80 retrofit surface-mounted finger guards for the existing building.
This cutting-edge school uses our integral (Alumax) and retrofit (Alufast) finger guards as part of Nottingham City Council's commitment to deliver sustainability, safety and life cost savings through carefully selected products.
Keen to create a 'home away from home' environment, Ronald McDonald Charity required finger guards that were discreet and unobtrusive. That's why they chose our integral finger guards, blending seamlessly into the environment, whilst also increasing safety and durability.
