The Project

Our Impact

J Guest Limited were the main contractor on the project, with us contracted by Excel 2000 Windows Limited who undertook the glazing package within the project. Our scope of works was to supply a PAS-24 compliant, thermally broken swing door entrance systems – on this project, security was extremely important to prevent vulnerable residents from leaving the building unassisted, due to being a dementia residential care facility. Electric locking was fitted in conjunction with our automatic swing doors, and the doors were configured to work in conjunction with the site’s access control system.
