A variety of joinery work for Penyffordd School

Case Study

As part of the 21st Century Schools programme, Flintshire County Council have funded a new single site school building in Penyffordd, to accommodate both infants and juniors from two previously separate sites. The new school, built on the site of the existing Abbots Lane Infants School, will accommodate children from both the former Infants school and juniors from Ysgol Penyffordd junior school previously on Penymynydd Road.

Parry Joinery were involved in the supply of FSC fire doors fitted with the necessary glazing, intumescent/ acoustic seals and Safehinge ‘anti-finger trap’ systems to help prevent any unnecessary accidents being had in these high traffic corridors and classrooms.

FSC/PEFC door frames were manufactured using FSC/PEFC certified 5th Redwood softwood. In a number of locations the doors were fitted alongside screens, which were also manufactured using FSC/PEFC certified 5th Redwood softwood or CND Beech hardwood. Smart new FSC MDF architraves were manufactured to our standard size with pencil round moulding.

A bespoke reception desk was also manufactured. The main desk made with a softwood sub frame clad with MDF to the inside and outside faces, laminated with an ‘Elegant Oak’ Formica and fully lacquered to finish. This reception desk also incorporated two sliding screens which

All the joinery work described above was manufactured to be DDA Compliant and to comply with the necessary fire and acoustic certification necessary for such buildings. The newly built school will reopen to students in September who will no doubt enjoy learning in this state of the art building for which Parry Joinery are very proud to have been involved.
