Anti-finger trap door fitted at Adullam Homes Housing Association

Jack Aluminium’s JD47 non-thermal commercial door has been used to replace a tired timber frame at the headquarters of Adullam Homes Housing Association in West Bromwich.

Aluminium Composite Solutions, from Bromsgrove, selected the JD47 door as part of a scheme of improvements at the Housing Association,’s HQ. The JD47 door has been fitted with a continuous hinge, to achieve an even distribution of the load and improve operational performance. Often used in high-traffic entrances, like on this project at Walter Moore House, the JD47 commercial door has been cleverly designed and adapted for this bespoke installation.

The anti-finger trap door stile is a round back profile, which is often used in public places like schools and hospitals. As the door pivots, the stile leaves a minimal gap to ensure fingers, clothing or hands cannot accidentally be injured if placed in the way of a closing door.

Aluminium Composite Solutions worked with Jack Aluminium to select the right commercial door for this project. Thermal efficiency and security were other factors taken into consideration at this busy office.

Tony Adamson, project manager at Aluminium Composite Solutions, said: “At Walter Moore House, we needed a heavy-duty door that was robust, that,’s why we selected a JD47 door with a normal door stile and a continuous hinge. It also looked good and offered high performance.

“Working with the guys at Jack Aluminium is always a pleasure. These products are revolutionary, and they are very straight-forward to fit. What we like about Jack, is that we can place an order and receive products within just a few days. This is really beneficial when you,’re working to a strict deadline and want to finish a job.

“All in all, we’ve been really impressed with Jack Aluminium and we,’d like to thank the team for their continued support.”
