Protecting Reading at a Leading UK University

Company News, Health, Safety & Environment, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA
“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them,” said Joseph Brodsky, the Russian-born American poet and essayist. Thankfully, an advanced glazing system at the University of Reading will ensure continued access to its library stock for students and staff.


The library is home to thousands of paper books and more than 65,000 e-journals and 200,000 e-books, and caters to more than 17,000 students.

 

Wrightstyle recently manufactured and supplied its pioneering WSL60 F1 series of unlatched doors, into partitioning and fixed walls in the library area. The new 80F1 series of thermally broken fire doors are also fully compatible with Wrightstyle’s SR60 curtain walling system. 

 

“Our door ranges offer a comprehensive solution for both integrity only or integrity and insulation, and we’re pleased that the portable magic of the University of Reading’s library will remain safe,” says Jane Embury, the glazing system specialist's marketing director.
