Kingdown School chooses Alpro, a co-educational secondary school in Wiltshire, is using stainless steel door handles from the Impressionist range by Alpro.
The pull handles have been fitted to 27 doors created by Richmark Aluminium Systems on the school’s new sixth form centre designed by E10 Architects. The civils work was performed by Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd. Based between Bristol and Bath, they have undertaken many school projects in the Somerset and Wiltshire areas coming to the client with a track record of relevant experience performed on budget and to tight timescales.
The Alpro Impressionist 2 handles have a diameter of 32mm and there are options of 250/300/400 and 600mm centres. Finishes can be anodised, satin stainless or polished stainless. Handles are supplied with dedicated bolt-thro or back-to-back fixing packs as standard.
Keith Parry, Sales Director at Alpro, said: “The Impressionist handles can be nylon or powder-coated and on this project the client opted for satin stainless with a grey powder coat to complement the building’s outer cladding which features a timber grain effect and inset windows. We offer several nylon-coated colours ex-stock with additional colours to match customer livery supplied to a 10-working-day lead time.”
Richmark Aluminium Systems fabricates doors, windows, conservatories, shop fronts and curtain walling. The company can operate on a supply-only or full management basis and its portfolio covers education, healthcare, residential and commercial clients within a 130-mile radius of Bristol.
Kingdown School is ranked in the top 10 secondary schools in Wiltshire with pupil ages ranging from 11 to 18. The school, which is located in Warminster, operates a house system and since 2011 it has been an academy.
