Well not literally for the King himself, but Christ the King School which is based in Macclesfield had a requirement for a mixture of solid timber core and solid particleboard doors to be put in place and Bespoke Complete Services were the chosen suppliers.
These were chosen from our Bespoke e-wood range which are fully finished, high quality veneered doorsets. The doors chosen were steamed beech veneer L4E and were fully concealed by the face veneer, pre hung in 32mm frames to varying applications.
The applications ranged from NFR to FD30 and FD60 rated as well as many acoustic doorsets in 32rw db and 35rw db. The majority of the doors needed to have vision panels inserted, factory glazed vision panels which were circular in shape were chosen.
The vision panels were supplied glazed with a mixture of clear and sandblasted FR glass and had matching, fully finished solid beech glazing rings, as depicted in the images. All of the doorsets were prepared so that they were ready to accept a range of ironmongery products seen in the imagery. All non-protruding ironmongery was fitted at the factory in order to alleviate costly and time consuming site work.
This overall made it more convenient for the contractors; this particular type of doorset is an ideal solution for demanding environments so its placement within a school was only natural. Having passed the industries rigorous fire, acoustic and mechanical test standards the door received the highest form of endorsement a product can receive, third party certification.
