Nevermind Winter Blues We Are Going Green

Bespoke Complete Services have been doing their bit, in an energy conscious society people are always looking for ways in which certain industries can operate more efficiently and do their bit for the environment.

We supply value added, complete doorsets and door services to our customers and through this manufacturing and fitting process we are doing our bit to keep as green as possible. Behind the raw wood, the doors and the door frames there is a heart; Bespoke Complete Services care about where we source our wood from and we have been working extremely hard to secure FSC status.

Through illegal logging many forests throughout the world plunge into crisis, not only is some logging illegal but it actually causes changes to our ecosystem which we rely on every single day just too survive.

It is us humans who create the demand for wood in a number of industries. There is a right way to source this wood and a wrong way; in everything we do Bespoke Complete Services want to go about it the right way.

As a door manufacturer we recognise our responsibility within this industry as we heavily rely on our supply of wood. Due to our recognition of the damage which we could potentially cause we always ensure that the timber we source is from legal and well maintained forests.

There are many people within the industry who claim to be environmentally friendly and in fact they are not. Some companies will choose to cut costs and select wood from illegal sources. You can rest assured we are not one of these companies but we do not expect you to just take our word for it. We can provide you with evidence and documents which prove our suppliers are compliant and are operating in accordance with the laws of their country.

Bespoke Complete Services condemns illegal logging practices and are very much aware of any changes within international legislation regarding the source of timber.

Timber is the most environmentally friendly construction material and within our factory we actually have an energy efficient wood burning boiler and heating system where we effectively burn any waste wood and this then works to provide heat to the factory floor.

We are self sufficient and have reduced gas fuel requirement for our offices and factory by a massive 70% so you can rest assured that if the environment is something that concerns you there are still companies out there who care too!

Doorsets Supplied to Darwen Vale High School

Bespoke are pleased to announce that our first batch of doorsets are now being produced for the brand new and fully re-furbished Darwen Vale High School.

The project consists of circa 325 door leaves in total all manufactured here in the local community with Darwen people at the hub of the manufacturing facility. Our doors which are being manufactured carry a severe duty rating ensuring a quality product with great sustainability in respect of life expectancy and usage.

All of the doors are being produced with a laminate face providing a very robust and fit for purpose product in two colours to fit with the current surroundings in order to retain parts of the existing building.

The laminates used are a Glacier white and Graphite grey along with some special manufactured polished birch veneer, in keeping with the present schemes.

On completion the doorsets will be delivered to site and installed over the next 4 months with the school due to open officially in Summer 2012.

This will be an exciting opening and a chance to see all the hard work come together and create a purpose built, inspiring building for learning and education.

Due to this project being a school it was necessary to provide FD30 and F60 protection throughout the building and also in some areas.

In addition to the fire doors they also needed acoustic doors. It was these doors that needed performance up to and including 35db.

Going Round in Circles, Circular Screens

Bespoke Complete Services have recently completed a project in Blackburn which required a number of circular screens to be fitted. Although at times it felt like we were going round in circles when fitting them, the job is now complete!

These screens are available in two options:

  • Softwood
  • Hardwood

In this case the hardwood was chosen; the screens were used within a rehabilitation centre to create little hubs. These were various rooms which were going to be used for different purposes and activities to aid the rehabilitation of those who heavily relied upon this service.

We watched as the rehabilitation centre circular screens were fitted and ensured that every little detail was perfect. At first the idea was to just have veneered doors fitted into each room but we suggested that to keep in with the modern and stylish look our circular screens may well look better, and they did!

You can see from the attached pictures just how fantastic the circular screens look. They are ideal for use in healthcare, schools, offices and various other applications.

In addition to the circular screens we also fitted a combination entrance frame too and this is shown in the pictures. A requirement of this was our door servicing; we had to ensure that the door was fully prepared for ironmongery application.

Healthcare Centre in Preston Opens its Bespoke Doors

A private healthcare centre based in Preston has just opened its doors! Prior to the opening Bespoke Complete Services were working on the new build project manufacturing 40+ veneered doors for them.

The veneer doors were made in our own factory and no part of the manufacturing process was outsourced; it was all carried out by us!

There was a requirement for some of the doors to go through our door servicing as some required vision panels putting in place whilst other doors required ironmongery preparation.

An air transfer grill or ATG cut out was made in some of the doors which would mean that a grill could be placed on the door allowing air circulation and ventilation into the room.

This particular client wanted all the doors in Canadian Maple, a veneered door in Canadian Maple offered a clean and light feel to the rooms. This private healthcare centre would be providing patients with state of the art technologies, care and most of all highly qualified staff.

With this in mind it was important that the building and environment reflected this and a professional look was achieved and maintained at all times.

Veneered Doors Supplied to Rainford Sixth Form

Bespoke Complete Services have manufactured over 110 veneered doorsets for a project at Rainford St Helens. The doorsets were supplied in American White Oak Veneer.

The doors were needed for a project involving a brand new sixth form block which would hopefully be opening within the New Year.

American White Oak doorsets were supplied to the new sixth form in various applications as required. These included NFR, FD30 and FD60 as well as some acoustic doorsets which would be used for the music areas. The acoustic doorsets needed to be up to 38rw db acoustic performance.

All the doors were manufactured in our factory as well as being factory fitted with their acoustic perimeter and automatic threshold seals to achieve the desired specification required.

Perimeter seals are an essential part to an effective acoustic door seal solution. When a door is manufactured and fitted into a frame there is a natural gap created between the door leaf and frame in a doorset. The seals work by filling the air gaps that create sound leaks around the head and jambs of the doorset. This works by stopping smoke, light, dust as well as sound.

The threshold seals as part of BS 476: Part 31:1 smoke seal compliant automatic drop down seal has a light weight mechanism which is self levelling when activated. It is proven too because the seal has passed a 100,000 cycle test with ease.

All doors were pre-hung in the factory and glazed vision panels were inserted. Rainford College is the Post 16 Provision of Rainford High Technology College; the new school building will provide students with an environment to be proud of.

If you have a project which is requiring a number of doors and doorsets then you should contact us on 01254 777142 or email info@bcs-l.com.
