We recently had an enquiry from a customer for a collection of new doors for their nursery facility. During the initial phone call, the customer explained that they had implemented a new policy within the nursery to allow increased visibility of the children. They said that this is partly a health and safety matter and also a practical issue for being able to monitor all the separate rooms throughout the nursery.
We explained that we have a number of doors featuring large glass panels to maximise visibility and light. The customer was concerned that they required fire doors and they feared that it was not possible to buy stylish fire doors featuring glass panels. In fact, we have a wide selection of doors that fit the bill and the customer was surprised at the amount of choice that they had. We were able to select a number of suitable styles featuring toughened safety glass to allow for the rough and tumble one might expect in a nursery.
After much deliberation, the customer opted for our Bastille glazed internal doors, which feature a large pane of glass which is clear Pyro glass to the fire rated version and an extra panel of wood at the base of the door. They also purchased a complementary solid panel style Bastille doors. These are both popular models that are available in a number of sizes, including the option of custom sizes.
We are always interested in a new or different application for our doors and it is great for us to spend time discussing requirements with customers to help them choose the most appropriate doors from our collection. In this case, we are looking forward to seeing the photos of the job once it is complete and we hope that the children and staff at the nursery like their new doors.
