Accessibility and security are among the top priorities in schools. It is important that everyone can move around all buildings easily, and be safe while doing so, while not compromising security at any time.
The Calthorpe Academy in Birmingham wanted to install new doors throughout its buildings to make them as easy as possible for its students to use. The Academy serves the special educational needs of more than 400 young people aged 2 to 19. Their difficulties include physical, behavioural or autistic conditions that demand thoughtfully designed and easily accessible facilities.
