About the Project

  • Brief

    Manufacturer delays holding up the project required last-minute product changes. Furthermore, particular door closers were clashing with the brickwork and damaging both the closer and the wall, and privacy bolts left in the locked position led to damaged bolts before project completion.

  • Solutions

    An extensive network of manufacturers allowed us to engage with an alternative manufacturer last minute, ensuring they could meet the program deadlines before samples were provided. Once approved, we supplied door closers with a slide rail arm and limiting stop instead of the standard scissor arm, which allowed the door to open without clashing with the bricks.

    Changing the privacy bolts to a set of latching privacy mortice locks also eliminated the bolt problem. Towards the end of the project, the client also asked us to supply locks to all gates. Our team’s promptness and availability meant we completed a site survey and provided the items required without issues.

  • Results

    Due to our problem-solving skills and dedication, we delivered on all products and services without causing project delays. Our experienced master key design team was also able to liaise with the two different Principals to implement a master key system that could hold the current school, its expansion and the high school yet to be built.
