01233 642 220 Hunter Douglas expertise add up

When a university mathematics building was designed with a complex, intricate ceiling, Hunter Douglas was specified for the project. They supplied 600m2

of solid wood grill for the reception and atrium of the University of

Kent’s new £26 million Sibson Building. Hunter Douglas provided class O, Forest Stewardship Council approved ayous wood, white- washed panels, 20mm x 80mm slats with 50mm gap, and black fleece. The complexity of the design came in the orientation of the panels at 45˚, which meant the installation team had to cut all the perimeter panels on site so that the changing angles could be fitted perfectly.

University protects students with Aico

Harper Adams University in Shropshire has installed Aico’s 160e Series of mains powered Smoke Alarms into its student accommodation in a move to increase levels of protection for students. The University wanted to increase the level of protection, but without the considerable expense of

moving to an LD1 system. The solution was found in the use of Aico’s Ei160e Series mains powered alarms with 10 year rechargeable Lithium cell back-up with Ei164e Heat Alarms fitted in the kitchens and Ei166e Optical Alarms in the bedrooms.
