Mascalls School is a wide ability mixed comprehensive school committed to providing a first class experience for Maidstone children. The school has recently been expanded to alleviate a shortage of accommodation across various curriculum areas, particularly in the arts and technology subjects. The solution chosen for the new building was an open atrium over three and a half floors with glazed screen separation to teaching areas allowing views towards the open countryside and between the atrium and the various faculty areas.
Since great care and consideration had gone into achieving a space that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing and an architecturally important feature of the school, Adexsi chose to supply and install its Certiciel glazed twin flap ventilators with concealed mechanisms. Designed for both smoke and natural ventilation applications and specifically for use on high quality architectural buildings - tested to EN12101-2 for smoke ventilation - they provide the required performance, multi-purpose operation and an aesthetically pleasing result.
