School Door Fire Safety & Glazed Doorsets 

Two key areas of safety within schools include fire precaution methods and ensuring that the privacy and safety of students are upheld.

As leading suppliers and manufacturers of doorsets for the education sector, RW Joinery are ideally suited to provide both of these. In addition to these, a number of additional factors need to be met, this includes ensuring a level of smoke control is provided by doorsets and that doorsets meet the required level of aesthetic stimulation.

Fire Safety For School Doorsets:

Schools and educational buildings are required to provide high levels of fire resistance and safety. One of the integral features of fire safety is doorsets. In order to enable our educational clients to meet these standards, all of our timber doorsets  provide good levels of fire resistance. In addition, in full compliance with the DCSF document, ‘Shaping the Future of Education’, all our school doorsets provide smoke control.

Glazed Doorsets For Education:

As schools and educational centres are responsible for young and vulnerable people, ensuring their privacy and safety is a top priority. This is also a legal requirement. Unsurprisingly perhaps, doorsets perform and integral role in ensuring the security of the institution. This can be achieved through the installation of glazed doorsets, some areas, such as classrooms, or doorsets that open onto external areas require clear glazing in order to ensure that effective observation can be observed. Whilst other areas, such as changing rooms and rooms that are used for pastoral support, will require opaque glazing, in order to ensure the privacy of those within.

In addition, all our doorsets designed for use in education conform to the levels of aesthetic stimulation required, as outlined in  ‘Approved Document M – Access to and Use of Buildings in the code of practice BS8300’. If you are unfamiliar with these requirements, our staff can provide support, assistance and advise to ensure total compliance.

As leading suppliers of doorsets to the educational sector, RW Joinery are perfectly placed to provide advice and assistance on the security features of your doorsets, to ensure they provide the required level of fire protection, smoke control, privacy and aesthetic stimulation.
