Sixth school term for Jack Door

Sixth school term for Jack Door


School projects increasingly demand quality Secured by Design doors that can also deliver energy efficiency, safety features and they have to be hard wearing against the daily knocks of school life. That’s why Architectural Windows and Glazing Ltd chose Jack Aluminum Systems’ PAS24 thermal TD68 Jack Door for six schools.

Derby based Architectural Windows and Glazing has manufactured and installed 16 single and 23 double leaf Secured by Design approved Jack Doors in schools across Manchester after impressing the contractor and local authority with the quality of the product and the quick turnaround times.

“We discovered Jack Aluminum Systems two years ago,” explains David Leeming, Director at Architectural Windows and Glazing. “Expectations for school projects are high and build schedules are tight. To be competitive in this market we needed a door that solved the challenges commonly associated with school buildings that we could manufacture on short lead times

“Because Jack Aluminium tests its door suite to PAS 23 and 24 standards, we’re able to manufacture the TD68 as a Secured by Design approved product using Jack Aluminium’s technical information.

“The specialist school construction company we worked with on these projects also liked the curved finger guard design feature to prevent fingers trapping in the door and the thermally broken threshold which can achieve a 1.7 U-value. I don’t know of any other double door on the market that can do all of this,” adds David.

Jack Aluminum is an easy company to deal with, helpful and straightforward to get hold of when you need something quickly. We’ve continued to use the TD68 Jack Door ever since we first found it. We have a project in progress in Worcester for 11 more Jack Doors, and have just been awarded 2 more Manchester schools as well.”
