Northern Beaches Christian School
The client presented to Evolution with the request for the largest possible top-hung sliding door system, double glazed, they would then build the openings around us.
Being a Year 7-12 school we had to consider children would be operating these, so we had to comply to various codes including disability, operating forces, fire escape and section J requirements. The E3 series would meet these demands with 2400 x 3000 wide sliding door panels and beyond. We went to the maximum of 250kg per panel, U values of 3.2, SHGC0.25 were also required and achieved. The results are aesthetically brilliant with enormous amounts of natural light being filtered through.
The education environment is thermally efficient and most importantly, a happy place to learn. Internal Timber joinery was also supplied by Evolution as we are able to produce outstanding work in both timber and Aluminium. We were the builders one stop shop. We supplied beautiful Victorian Ash features with Black Japan staining, efficient acoustic seals, electric hardware was fitted and it was created in such a way as to compliment the overall design of the entire structure.
The design approach for this project capitalises upon the positive qualities of this modern building to provide a facility for teaching and learning which would inspire and stimulate the creative juices of both teachers and students for years to come. The Elevate series of modern sliding doors, along with double glazing would deliver excellent thermal performance and is ideal for commercial and high end applications. As a result of these combined efforts, this school will sit atop of the area for attracting teachers and students for many years to come.
