“The summer months have always been a busy period for our education projects, but 2015 is proving to be even more successful. We launched our new Education Range in February 2015 with the aim of simplifying the whole process for our clients and this has generated a great deal of interest in the sector” said Tim Doran, Ahmarra’s Managing Director.
Ahmarra are currently working on over 20 large-scale projects to manufacture fire doors for schools for the summer of 2015, as well as working with a number of architects and contractors who wish to specify the Education Range for new build and redevelopments in the future.
Current projects include the full refurbishment of St Augustine’s Academy in Maidstone; the innovative Low Carbon Building at the University of East Anglia, which is claimed to be one of the most energy efficient buildings in Europe; and the new £8 million Science Centre at Abingdon School.
Ahmarra’s range of high performance timber doorsets and glazed screens are particularly suited to school environments and areas of high footfall that often have specific fire, acoustic and safety requirements. The severe duty fire doors include ratings up to FD60 and up to 43 RwdB acoustic ratings and all materials are FSC certified.
“Our many years experience of manufacturing doors within the education sector has led us to develop our new range of made-to-order doorsets tailored to meet the requirements of schools, colleges and universities. Our aim is to make the entire process as simple and practical as possible.” said Tim Doran.
As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of made to order doorset solutions, Ahmarra have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the education sector and this new range will further establish their expertise in this area.
