Comar rebuilds fire-hit infant school

John Ray Infants School in Essex was burnt to the ground during a 12-hour fire days before the pupils returned from summer holidays.

Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with their approved fabricator Anglia Fixing Ltd, completed an extended rebuild of the school which increased its intake from 285 to 360 pupils providing extra school places in the local community.

This project was completed using Comar 5P.i ECO Top Hung Windows. The aluminium P.i & P.i ECO window and door systems use trademarked Polyamide Insulated (P.i) that provides exceptional thermal performance and reduces heat loss through the thermal break ensuring low U-values and therefore ensuring energy bills are minimised.

Comar 7P.i Commercial Doors are a natural choice in a busy school environment and were selected for the main entrance and external doors. The doors and windows were hung directly into the Comar 9P.i Framing system which was also used to install a large glazed area to the schools front facade.

All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing.

Anglia Fixing liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
