Glazing for Schools, Colleges and Universities

A to Z Glazing Commercial Windows & Doors

We have been working with Schools, Colleges and Universities for many decades fitting and installing our glazing products to generic and bespoke building designs and layouts. We automatically give Schools and Colleges account status with our organisation, so our services are available immediately.

Our trusted glazing solutions are installed within educational institutions, schools, colleges and universities across the country and have been adapted to include new Covid Safe Glass Screens to prevent the spread of the virus.

Covid-19: See our School and College space divider page for suitable solutions inside schools, colleges and universities to maximise workspace and safe zones to protect against Covid-19.

School window and door replacement

We recently undertook multiple window and door replacements at a local school, providing them with matching blue RAL colour doors and frames.

The school project involved many bespoke requirements to fit with the existing door and window frame sizes in place. Our specialist team applied many glazing features such as:

  • Powder Coated to any RAL colour
  • Double Glazed
  • DDA compliant, where possible (if required).
  • Door frames & sidelights.
  • Hold open Pad handles
  • Comar 3 & 7
  • Non thermal system
  • Flush bolts
  • Pad handles
  • Anti finger trap door stiles,
  • Concealed overhead closers

The window frames were of various designs, those in the above picture are:

  • Comar 5pi system
  • Top hung with opening vents
  • Restricted friction hinges
  • Espag locks
  • Glazed in trickle vents.

Removal of Old School Doors

Before we can install the new windows and doors, we must first remove the existing doors and framework. Our team will carefully assess the existing framework and dismantle it carefully and dispose of the windows, doors, wood and other materials no longer required.

Installation of New School Doors

Now that we have removed the existing framework and doors, we will start the installation of the new doors that were bespoke made to fit the open space.

As seen in the new installation, we have also bespoke built side window panel frames to match the previous design and space used.

Safety is a very important, nowhere more so than with the installation of windows and doors within schools and public buildings. Safety is everyone's responsibility and at A to Z Glazing, safety is our top priority. A to Z Glazing have the safety of all Glaziers tested by an out source to a compliance level managed under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme.

We have many Policies in place to promote safe working and safety awareness, including the use of generic and non-generic Risk Assessments and Method Statements, please contact us for policy information.

We have had many years' experience within this market and can meet almost any specification, providing safe designs and installations whether it be for vulnerable situations, to meet DDA requirements, or to deal with security issues.

Noise Reduction

A key benefit to our Window and Doors is the reduction of noise both from outside the school in, but also from the inside out. The benefits of a noise free classroom allow teachers to communicate easily with students and improve their concentration and reduce distractions from outside of the building.

If your school is in a residential area, you may also want to reduce the noise levels leaving the school, such as in sports halls or music rooms. For bespoke noise reducing solutions, please contact us with your requirements.
