St Josephs Primary School

Case Study

The new school development for St Josephs Primary School had to have a fresh and vibrant appeal to the building – to attract both the children who attend the school and their parents. With the previous school partly destroyed in an arson attack it was important to ensure an effective measure of security was included in the design. The Integr8 range of security shutters enabled both the security requirement and the design of the property to go hand in hand, as the system is completely concealed from view when in the raised position and did not alter the design intent of the project.

As the scheme was built using a structural framing system (SFS) build style the Integr8 180BL Shutter system has been utilised. The system incorporates an insulated shutter housing that is fixed directly to the SFS system, without any interface with the external brickwork; ensuring ease of programming on site.

The shutters are electrically operated via a handheld remote control unit, allowing complete flexibility of control to the school; classrooms can be operated individually, enabling blackout for certain rooms when required, and all shutters can be opened together when opening/closing the school. The remote control system also allows the school to change any operation at a later date with little or no impact to other services; for example should the school wish to operate a window individually for solar control.
