In Pursuit of Excellence – Darwen Vale High School

Darwen Vale High School Doorsets

Darwen Vale High School is home to hundreds of pupils from the local area, all of whom work together to “achieve their own personal excellence”, making the school one of the best in the region. The school was recently refurbished to make sure it is completely up-to-date and in compliance with relevant legislation; part of this refurbishment included the installation of many doorsets around the building which were expertly designed to match existing aesthetics while providing the required level of durability for such a demanding environment.

After researching the many doorset providers, Darwen Vale High School chose to employ Bespoke Complete Services to provide the required new doorsets for installation by contractors Balfour Beatty, thanks to our impressive longstanding reputation of providing similar high-quality products to a wide range of schools, colleges, universities and academies.

The refurbishment of Darwen Vale High School was part of the Building Schools for the Future Scheme, designed to initiate change in the education system through the provision of inspirational buildings. Benefiting from this scheme, Darwen High School has been kitted out with state-of-the-art computer suites along with a range of physical improvements.

Bespoke Complete Services were extremely proud to have provided more than 250 doorsets to the refurbishment project, including FD30, FD60, NFR and >35db acoustic products. All of the doors had been manufactured with a high-pressure Formica laminate face in order to deal with the frequent usage and, in addition, hardwood lips on all four edges and full edge protectors will provide extra support. Many of the doors featured integral vision panels which, glazed with strong and durable clear glass, will meet the extremely demanding acoustic and fire performance criteria.

In total, around 325 doors were produced for this project, all of which were locally manufactured and carry the highest ‘severe duty’ quality rating. The doors were produced in a range of colours and finishes to match existing aesthetics and will provide a long, low-maintenance service life.

This project is typical of the many carried out by Bespoke Complete Services. For more information on our products and services, please contact our team on 01254 777142 or email info@bcs-l.com.
