Sparrow Early Learning Centre in Ormeau, Queensland is located on the northern end of the Gold Coast and exceptional early childhood education and care. One of their values is ‘Health and Safety’, with the centre dedicated to ‘providing a safe and nurturing environment, that is well maintained and cared for, with qualified staff and educators as well as compliant indoor and outdoor environments.’
The centre was looking for a solution that would provide airflow into the rooms, for the staff and children, and easier access between the rooms. Durability, value for money, and a quick and easy process were also important considerations.
The centre always likes to look for local businesses, to support their local community, and following recommendations, chose Viking Security Screens.
The new, improved Protec security screen products, released in 2020, provide excellent airflow, with an open area of 40%. The screens also provide excellent visibility for centre staff, allowing them to keep a close eye on everyone both inside and outside, and for parents to spot their children at pick up time.
One of the benefits of Protec, over the traditional diamond grille product is that Protec mesh provides no footholds, so children cannot climb up it, another safety benefit.
The project included fitting 31 security doors and 24 security windows to the centre. All product was custom made to size, and all handles were positioned at 1300mm high, out of reach of little hands, but still accessible for the centre staff and parents.
