BESAM - Talbot School, Sheffield

As part of the Sheffield BSF programme, Newfield and Talbot schools were designed to become a co-located facility, with Talbot School a dedicated, multi-disability Special Educational Needs provider. Once the project was completed, the school recognised that they needed to provide more independence to the students by automating the internal doors to the classrooms and hygiene areas, thus also improving accessibility within the building.

Besam was originally chosen by BDP Architects and Vinci Construction as the partner of choice for the original build and was confident that a good solution could be provided by offering a trial demonstrating the benefits of this new solution. After a successful three month trial period a further 24 doors were automated on the site.

Besam, an existing lifecycle provider to Vinci FM, was selected on this project for its technical expertise and ability to provide the correct product solution. The installation of the 24 doors proved both efficient and timely with excellent feedback from the building staff and students.

The Besam SW100 Low Energy Swing Door operator was chosen specifically for its silent operation, good aesthetics and the limited impact it would have on the existing building. Besam was also able to offer a comprehensive range of push button activation devices best suited to the needs of the individuals. As part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, Besam was able to draw on expertise to provide new locks that would work well with the SW100 to provide good operational performance. The SW100 has had a great success in the marketplace on internal applications where users recognise that modern door closers, when used to provide a fire break, smoke seal, acoustic seal and access control, fail to provide convenient disabled access.

Besam design, manufacture, supply, install and maintain many types of automated entrances including Revolving, Swinging, and Sliding Systems. We are part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, the global leader in door opening solutions.

We provide your end user clients with support throughout the lifecycle of our products, which in many cases has exceeded well over 20 years.
