Fire station Barneveld (NL)
Architects recommend the use of Compact doors for emergency services for several reasons. Firstly, these kind of buildings have an emergency function so reliability is the key condition. The low maintenance costs are another reason. After all, responsible use of public funds benefits us all.
Compact doors offer a great freedom in design. They provide the architect with the opportunity to really give a buiding their own signature. A much requested feature is a high-speed engine that can open a door in 60 cm/sec. Various municipalities home and abroad have chosen a Compact door for their fire stations.
To take optimal advantage of the natural light our Compact doors can be provided with Full Vision panels. These fully glazed panels can also be combined with sandwich panels. The Full Vision panels have a lot of glass surface allowing more natural light inside and maximum visibility on both inside and outside.
Full vision panels are aluminum hollow profiles with vertical center posts and a filling of your choice. The fillings are clamped to the inside with a white frame that consists of polythene and rubber.
A Full Vision panel is suitable for different types of fillings. In addition to the clear acrylic and polycarbonate fillings the panels can also be equipped with safety glass, mesh or closed sandwich panels. It is even possible to fit these panels with no filling at all.View
