School entrances have many different types of assets to maintain on site

The entrance of a school is where your initial impression is formed. It is crucial for the design to create a warm and secure atmosphere that truly embodies the school’s vision.

Education buildings need doors that can withstand high traffic while ensuring safety and accessibility for everyone inside, ensuring reliability even in the busiest of settings. When it comes to renovating schools or upgrading existing buildings, we understand the importance of not only improving facilities but also boosting academic performance. We recognize the vital connection between the school environment and the success and well-being of students.

Automatic Doors Provide A Smooth Flow

Security is of utmost importance within educational institutions like schools. By integrating access control systems, automatic doors offer a multitude of security advantages. Additionally, these doors efficiently handle the constant flow of traffic that educational establishments experience on a daily basis.

Furthermore, having professionally installed automatic doors in your school guarantees compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act.  For the last two decades, we’ve expertly set up numerous automatic sliding and swinging doors in private schools, public schools, colleges, and universities.

Controlling Access To Your School

Barriers are strategically placed at the entrances of schools to prevent unauthorized vehicles from entering the premises and to ensure the safety of staff vehicles, staff and students. 

These measures can vary from a basic intercom system to more advanced options such as keypads and card readers. The need to ensure the safety and well-being of students, has led to an increased emphasis on implementing measures to maintain a secure environment within schools.

Keeping Your School Safe & Secure

With our extensive experience, we have developed a unique understanding of security concerns faced by educational institutions such as schools, colleges, and universities, as well as local councils. 

Schools are facing a growing threat of theft and vandalism, unwanted guests cause heavy damage on their premises. With valuable equipment stored inside schools it is of utmost importance to ensure their robust protection. Canteen areas are also crucial to protect children from the danger of fire or smoke entering the primary areas of the school in all safeguarding protocols.
