School Aluminium Door Replacement

We carried out this school aluminium door replacement project in the days leading up to Christmas. The school required all of the aluminium doors to be replaced as they were past their best and not secure or energy efficient due to their age. In total, 24 doors needed replacing which ranged from the school entrance to louvre boiler room doors. A number of the doors were fire escape doors in classrooms and came with emergency release push bar sand signage. All of the external locking doors had key alike locks which was requested by the school site manager. The benefit of this being that he could unlock all of the doors with one key and not a whole bunch.

School Holidays

Due to the majority of the doors being in busy locations, the works could only be carried out when the school was closed. An ideal period for this project was just before Christmas. With the last day of school being the 15th, we started work on the 16th with the project being completed by the 21st. The school was impressed at the speed of the installation and the quality of the work.

Unpredictable Aluminium Prices

With the current material cost increases, we ensured that our price remained the same from the day we quoted for the job by ordering the doors early and keeping them at our premises until the works were ready to being. This meant that the price didn’t increase for the school and provided great value.

The school was extremely pleased with the new doors and have requested that we look at additional future works that they are looking to have carried out.
