HARDWARE&SECURITY DOING THEIR HOMEWORK FOR JOHN DAVIES PRIMARY 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-TLock’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-TLock 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™ 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. We are very satisfied with the service and support we get from Newark & Sherwood and from Mul-T-Lock too.” Specialist products strengthen portfolio Following a successful amalgamation and re-launch in 2010, Carl F Groupco reports that specialist products are playing a key role supporting its growth.
