Hereford Cathedral School Use Relcross Escape Hardware


hen a school is based right in the centre of a bustling city and is spread over a variety of premises, it’s not surprising that it faces security issues not commonly found in other schools. Hereford Cathedral School turned to Relcross, via BM Ltd of Halesowen, when faced with this situation when their new gymnasium was built. Relcross in turn recommended their Von Duprin 22 CE marked escape device. The double doors feature two point locking via a surface mounted vertical rod and two Von Duprin type 22 escape devices. These are CE marked and have been independently tested to 500,000 cycles so are ideal for high traffic environments - as are the LCN 1460 door closers supplied at the same time for the various changing room and classroom doors in this building.

Tarkett makes lawful entry at Newcastle University


he Law School at Newcastle University occupies a series of elegant late Victorian townhouses, which have recently been refurbished and extended to provide a new main entrance, reception area and improved access to facilities. Tarkett iQ Megalit vinyl tiles were installed throughout the new single storey extension creating a bold, welcoming entrance.

Ces Maddison, of project architects Tench Maddison Ash, explained the choice of flooring: “All materials were selected for their sustainable properties

using the BRE green guide to specification. We chose Tarkett’s vinyl floor finishes for their recycled material content and long life/low maintenance characteristics. They give a stunning finish to the new main entrance.” Megalit is one of Tarkett’s iQ floorings, which offer the best lifecycle costs on the market. iQ Megalit needs no wax or polish throughout its life, with a PUR reinforcement that requires the absolute minimum of heavy, wet cleaning. Thanks to its Unique Surface Restoration, simple dry buffing fully restores the surface to its original appearance and properties, giving extreme longevity and minimising maintenance costs. iQ Megalit is one of the first homogeneous floorings to achieve the highest wear group classification, class T, EN660-2, ensuring it can withstand heavy daily traffic.

uilding work has continued apace at St Mary’s Catholic College, Blackpool. Amongst the developments has been a 76 week hire of two, 2-storey, modular buildings comprising 32 bays with three links at each floor level between the buildings. This was a major project for Wernick Hire who in order to clinch the contract had to guarantee delivery within five weeks of an order being placed. The tight installation deadline was met and the client is very pleased with the open-plan science lab, four classrooms and open-plan canteen.
