Products from JACK ALUMINIUM SYSTEMS were used in a £2.6m revamp of Strood Railway Station as part of Medway Council’s plans to regenerate the area.
Essex-based IDF Aluminium Ltd fabricated and installed Jack’s JD47 Non-thermal Shopfront System, JCW Curtain Walling System, TD68 Thermal Emergency Exit Door Suite and TW70 TruEnergy Window system as part of the project.
IDF managing director Will Woods said: “We always use Jack Aluminium doors for these kinds of projects. As well as offering great thermal efficiency and security benefits for big refurbs, Jack Aluminium delivers product fast, so we can keep to strict deadlines on public sector projects.”
WPB Contractors was responsible for a major part of the work. Project manager Daniel Ready said: “The TD68 Thermal Door is a revolutionary product, which is robust and has great thermal efficiency and security benefits. It is extremely well designed and is highly effective, especially when you want to install customer-friendly air conditioning and a hi-tech heating system.”
With a remote access TD68 Thermal Door option with a built-in electric strike, staff at the railway station have full remote access control. The door can be locked internally and externally with a key to ensure it is secure on the outside. It can still be opened in an emergency from the inside using a standard panic door exit device.
