Furthermore Leaderflush Shapland’s engineered performance core, EnduraCor, was specified to provide increased durability and stability which is critical in a busy environment FD60 minutes fire resistance, in fire risk areas.
Leaderflush Shapland’s innovative Envision door facing also played an important role in meeting the architect’s design aspirations and improving usability for end users. Envision enables the intricate detail of high definition, photographic images to be incorporated into a factory assembled doorset. The image or design is digitally reverse painted and encapsulated behind 2mm of material, providing protection against wear.This design capability allowed clear, bright graphics of activities, such as weightlifting and swimming, or objects, such as showerheads, to be incorporated into doors where necessary to help end users navigate their way around the building.
Leaderflush Shapland’s Head of Marketing Stephen Hutsby says: “We worked with the architects to identify the best solutions for each situation and because of the flexible nature of Leaderflush Shapland’s products we could tailor them to meet specific requirements. For example, the image of a camera on the viewing platform doorset runs from the door face onto the glass. This meant we had to change the pigment slightly in the Envision material to match the manifestation colour.”
By manufacturing each performance doorset in a quality-controlled factory environment and delivering them fully-formed to site Leaderflush Shapland could ensure each component was configured correctly and was fit for purpose. Its site support team also gave an in depth installation-toolbox presentation to fitters to ensure doorsets were installed correctly and offer guaranteed certified performance once in situ.
This comprehensive service enables Leaderflush Shapland to meet the complex performance and design needs of leisure sector projects, such as the Michael Woods Sports and Leisure Centre, with doorsets that make a splash.
