The Broxbourne School is a brand-new school boasting first class facilities – including, of course, Dorplan doorsets! FD30 and FD60 doors included a range of acoustic ratings from 30 up to 45 dB. Specialist vision panel glass was both fire-resistant and insulating, protecting school staff and students from heat as well as fire and smoke. The sports hall doors protect users of the room, being completely flush with no protruding ironmongery or beading.
Built-in safety at Essex Primary School
You can’t see the safety features in the doors at this new school, but they’re brimming with them.
From independently-certified fire and acoustic performance to safety hinges that design out the risk of trapped fingers, these doors will keep children and staff safe for years to come.
Dorplan supplied 120 doorsets for the school, many featuring side-screens to ensure visibility into classrooms and aid light distribution. The requirements varied across the school but Dorplan catered for numerous combinations of fire-ratings, acoustic ratings, vision panels and side screens.

Sir Bobby Robson School
Dorplan supplied 89 doors to this project, a school in Ipswich for children with social, emotional and mental health needs.
Using its PuraDor+ range for bespoke doors, Dorplan was able to meet a number of specialist requirements for the project. These included safety ironmongery products and between-glass blinds that can be adjusted to provide greater visibility or privacy at the flick of a switch, in both vision panels and side screens.
Doors were supplied in a durable dark laminate that was complemented with contrasting wooden beading and frame colour to give a pleasing finish.
De Salis Studio College
De Salis Studio College demonstrates that young people do have the requirements to be able to compete in an increasingly competitive employment market.
This is achieved through a learning offer that includes academic, technical and vocational learning incorporating the CREATE curriculum which is so special to the Studio School concept, and ensures that young people also gain those essential soft skills so important to employers. The CREATE skills framework develops the following skills:
• Relating to people
• Application of skills
• Emotional intelligence
Dorplan’s involvement in supplying the doorsets really had an interesting educational twang to it. We look forward to having ex-students join us someday that have been though the CREATE learning methodology. Young, enthusiastic and goal driven with a business head…that can’t be bad!
Abbey Court SEN School
Abbey Court is a special school for pupils aged 3-19 with severe and profound learning difficulties.
The specialist facilities at the Primary site include a sensory room, a soft play room, a horse simulator, a sports field and individual Key Stage playgrounds with specialist sensory equipment.
It was great to be part of the success of this project with the supply of all internal doorsets and screens throughout this interesting project.
