Aluminium Fire Exit Doors

“The Saint” radio station fire exit doors adjacent to the ticket offices at Southampton Football Club. The doors were damaged when somebody accidentally drove in to them and damaged the existing ones.

Our Contracts Team attended site at the clubs request to make an essential replacement.

Although the doors would need replacing, the staff, who work directly behind the doors, had also complained that they felt a little enclosed and it was if they were working inside a box. They also requested more light to filter into the room behind so that they could see outside. The problem of every day access was also raised as the previous doors were solid and only used for fire escape purposes.

Working closely with the staff at the football club we devised the doors to meet the full criteria required.

Manufactured in our Southampton factory we supplied and installed new commercial grade aluminium doors with external key locking operation combined with a panic latch arrangement internally. The lower panels are solid infill with aluminium sheet finish front and back. The top glazed panels are in laminated safety glass complying to BS 6206 safety glazing legislation currently in force.

The glass units are incorporating a one way vision facility which enables staff on the inside to see out, as they requested, but people on the outside see a mirror reflection. The door colour was matched to the existing RAL colour to ensure a perfect match with all of the clubs existing installations.
