Nelson and Colne College was formed by a merger of a number of local sixth forms and currently has around 1,700 full-time students and 4-5,000 part-time students.
A new classroom block at the college has been supplied with a range of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions products including its high performance specification lock case, Optimus3, via local Architectural Ironmongers, Mercer and Sons.
ASSA ABLOY Cam-Motion® DC500A door closers were installed, enabling lower door opening forces for all users. This assists in helping to meet the requirements of The Equality Act, specifically BS8300 and Approved Document M of The Building Regulations.
In addition, the dimensions of the lockcases also satisfy the requirements of The Equality Act, making the range the ideal choice for use in schools and colleges. UNION 1000-series stainless steel lever handles and accessories were also included in the installation.
Ben Hacking, GAI qualified Architectural Ironmonger at Mercer and Sons said:
“In a college environment, it is fundamental that security meets rigorous legislative demands. ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions simplified the project from a supply perspective, providing us with a comprehensive package of high security products, which meets all requirements and is competitively priced.
“We have a close working relationship with the main contractor on the project, Barnfield Construction Ltd, so it was crucial to ensure that we installed quality products, which would be durable and reliable for the college. ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions had the breadth of range available to assure us they could deliver on functionality and aesthetics.”Ian Chapman, Regional Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, added:
“We have extensive experience in the education sector and are pleased that we were able to help create a safe and secure learning environment at Nelson and Colne College, through our affiliation with Mercer and Sons.”
