A full suite of Jack Aluminium Systems’ products were used in a £2.59m revamp of Strood Railway Station, part of the National Station Improvement Programme (NSIP).

The 37-week refurbishment programme was part of Medway Council’s plans to regenerate the area and the new station is a bright, modern building with a new larger waiting area and booking hall.

Essex-based IDF Aluminium Ltd fabricated and installed Jack Aluminium’s JD47 Non-thermal Shopfront System, JCW Curtain Walling System, TD68 Thermal Emergency Exit Door Suite and TW70 TruEnergy Window system as part of the project.

Will Woods, Managing Director at IDF Aluminium explains: “We always use Jack Aluminium doors for these kinds of projects. Contractors and customers are pleased with the result and they usually want to use the same products for other stations in the NSIP. As well as offering great thermal efficiency and security benefits for big refurbs, Jack Aluminium delivers product fast, so we can keep to strict deadlines on public sector projects.”

Daniel Ready, project manager at WPB Contractors – the Kent-based civil engineering, building and maintenance contractor that was responsible for a major part of the work said: “The TD68 Thermal Door is a revolutionary product, which is robust and has great thermal efficiency and security benefits. It is extremely well designed and is highly effective, especially when you want to install customer-friendly air conditioning and a hi-tech heating system.”

By choosing a remote access TD68 Thermal Door option with a built-in electric strike, staff at the railway station have full remote access control. The door can be locked internally and externally with a key to ensure it is secure on the outside. It can still be opened in an emergency from the inside using a standard panic door exit device.

Daniel adds: “The newly-improved station gives visitors a fantastic first impression of the area, as soon as they step off the train. That makes us feel very proud and we’d like to thank Jack Aluminium Systems.”
