CHARTER SPECIALIST SECURITY - Charter-Integr8 Security Shutters Safeguard Replacement Medical Centre

The new North Cardiff Medical Centre, which opened three years after the original surgery was destroyed in an arson attack, provides the latest facilities for the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare, all protected by Charter-Integr8 security shutters from Charter Specialist Security, the UK's leading supplier of built-in roller shutters.

The new three storey building, designed by LT Architects, is on the same site as the previous surgery. It features a double height atrium on entrance, a pharmacy on the ground floor and two floors of medical rooms, catering to over 14,000 patients.

To prevent the new Centre from being vulnerable to vandalism or a similar arson attack as its predecessor, all ground floor doors and windows of the North Cardiff Medical Centre have been installed with Charter-Integr8 security shutters. A secure and aesthetic solution, Charter-Integr8's shutter mechanics are integrated into the actual fabric of the building. In the raised position, the shutter is completely concealed from view. In the lowered position, the shutters ensure effective security.

Charter-Integr8 features a range of shutter solutions for all door and window profiles. At the North Cardiff Medical Centre 20 Charter-Integr8 180BL and eight Charter-Integr8 180C security shutters have been installed. The 180BL has been specifically designed for fast track build styles where a lintel is not required. The 180C features an aluminium hood box and guide rails that have a neat, compact design to minimise their visual impact. The shutter curtain comprises twin wall extruded aluminium sections designed to ensure maximum security.

Lance Taylor of LT Architects, which has extensive experience in the health care sector across South Wales, comments on his decision to use Charter-Integr8 security shutters: "I was looking for shutters that had a better look and feel to the ones I had come across. Most have an unsightly MDF board with visible screw caps at the back which is not easy to remove and replace for maintenance; Charter's systems don't. Instead, they have a clip on insulated air tight back plate, which is a far better solution."

Lance was also impressed with the level of service he received from Charter: "The front sliding door is over six meters in length and required one single shutter. Charter found a solution for this which worked very well. They were very helpful".

Charter Specialist Security is an industry leader of built-in roller shutters for the new build and renovation markets, offering clients an innovative range of integrated security solutions. For more information, please contact Charter Specialist Security by email below:
