Mul-T-Lock and Newark & Sherwood do their homework for school
Newark & Sherwood Locksmiths has worked with John Davies Primary School to design a scaleable security solution to upgrade the facilities from mechanical locking to access control, using Mul-T-Lock's innovative SMARTair system.
Nottinghamshire based John Davies Primary School promotes positive behaviour by creating an atmosphere of trust, security and mutual respect. With a new headteacher in place, upgrading security on site was placed as a high priority for pupils and staff.
The school made contact with local Mul-T-Lock dealers Newark & Sherwood Locksmiths located in the heart of Newark town. Following an investigative site visit Newark & Sherwood presented a security specification based on Mul-T-Lock SMARTair installation throughout the school.
Recently, Mul-T-Lock SMARTair wall readers have been fitted externally to secure the perimeter of the school whilst internal office doors, including the Head teacher's office have been fitted with innovative SMARTair(tm) electronic handle sets.
Mr Robert della-Spina, Headteacher at John Davies Primary School: "In order to teach and to learn, staff and pupils must feel safe and secure. This is my absolute priority for my new school, right from the perimeter and the site boundaries and throughout all internal areas.
"We are very satisfied with the service and support we get from Newark & Sherwood and from Mul-T-Lock too, who between them recommended SMARTair to bring all the convenience and added benefits of access control. Right from the start of the rolling works program to upgrade security, we have already been impressed with the quick installation and how easy the system is to use."
SMARTair is a high performance cost efficient wireless access control system that is easy to install and functions on a standalone basis, whilst having no impact on design or aesthetics.
Says Dale Bennett of Newark & Sherwood Locksmiths: "SMARTair offers extensive features normally associated with a sophisticated access control system. With the variety in the product portfolio to operate on any external or internal application, we have product solutions for all types of access points, making the overall supply and installation costs attractive to educational environments. SMARTair is a very durable design and is well suited to withstand high traffic areas such as a primary school environment, like John Davies Primary School, and offer excellent safety, security and convenience to all who attend."
Steve Ross, Managing Director of Mul-T-Lock concluded: "What Newark & Sherwood has demonstrated is that by working with the school early in the specification process, quality products such as Mul-T-Lock SMARTair, that meet specific requirements can be recommended, and installed to help to ensure staff and pupils can work and learn in a safe and secure school environment, without affecting every day operations or the aesthetics of an educational facility.
