We have specialised in manufacturing doors for the education sector for many years and we understand the challenges. Work needs to be carried out safely with the minimum of disruption with guaranteed safety and security meaning soundproofing and fire resistant doors are an essential requirement for schools, colleges and universities.
Much refurbishment work has to be carried out in the holiday period and this requires careful planning so July and August are very busy periods every year. For the unexpected challenges, when you need fast service, you can call upon our unique Express Delivery Service.

College and School Door Solutions
College, university and school doors have certain traits that makes them effective solutions in the education industry.
Looking after the welfare of students is paramount and fingers are trapped at an alarming rate every day. The Safehinge solution, with an integral finger guard fitting snugly into the door frame, gives peace of mind to teachers and parents alike, and the fact that it looks good is an added bonus. Outlasting plastic door guards that need frequent replacement makes Safehinge a very cost-effective option. Small children, when using school doors are less mindful of watching their fingers and we strongly advise safehinge.
Music rooms disrupt the rest of the school and an acoustic door can reduce this dramatically. Talk to us about the most suitable configuration for your needs because acoustic ratings are average scores across the spectrum of frequencies. There are circumstances where a door with a lower overall score will block a particular frequency better than a higher rated door so we need to consider the cause before we advise the best solution.
Additionally, classrooms require a degree of soundproofing to reduce disturbances from other rooms and areas. Keeping a classroom engaged is challenging enough, and soundproof doors are a must for reducing additional distractions from the rest of the school.
Safety is a key aspect of an educational institution, and therefore schools, colleges and universities all need fire resistant doors. These come in a range of ratings, from 30 minute to 240 minute fire resistance.
Special needs schools will need to conform to Part M regulations such as by putting a white fire strip on the leading edge of all doors even if they are not fire rated so that it is more visible to those who are sight impaired.
Here at Enfield, be it a college or school door, we provide soundproof fire doors with safehinge options available for an all in one door package and you can call us on 020 3199 5878 or you can email your enquiry via the quick enquiry form.
