BILCO Has Safety Covered At Langley Academy

The main focus of the new Langley Academy in Slough, alongside providing outstanding full time education to 11-18 year olds, is to ensure an environmentally sound building and the health and safety of all those within it.

Those two features come together in the academy’s plant room where a biomass boiler burns locally-sourced woodchips, delivered to the site by lorry on a regular basis. Safe access to the boiler for fuel deliveries posed a challenge to the site designers, who brought Bilco on board to develop a solution.

Bilco provided two JD-ALH20 floor doors which were supplied and fitted by Matte Fabrications. They enable easy delivery of woodchips while keeping the area safe for students and visitors.

“The doors have to allow an easy and controllable entrance for a lorry to tip the woodchips through but also be strong enough for large vehicles such as lorries and fire engines to pass over,” said Aidan Shaw, senior site manager for the academy.

The twin floor doors, each measuring 3,000 mm x 1,500 mm, are hinged on their shorter sides at each end of the opening. They are positioned above the fuel hopper at ground level and allow safe, controlled operation by site operatives.

Manufactured in aluminium, the doors are fitted with compression spring operators for ease of use. This not only allows safe access when required but also ensures the doors are kept securely closed at all other times. The doors also feature a slip-resistant covering to avoid danger to people walking over them in the closed position.

The Langley Academy specialises in science and also teaches the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Striving for excellence in every area of its remit, the academy tries to provide state of the art facilities for its students.

As part of this pledge, the plant room of the academy has one glazed wall which enables students to see the inner workings of the heating and ventilation systems. The biomass boiler produces both heat and water while a smart meter displays the energy and carbon savings achieved by the academy as a result of its numerous environmental initiatives. Students have access to this kind of data throughout the year, enabling them to learn from the initiatives put in place.
