The sales team at Glass Installations were contacted by Sally Skyrme of Scraptoft Parish Council, who were looking to convert their community hub into a multi-functional hall which could be used for dancing whilst still allowing the room to be used for other functions.

Having in-depth discussions with Sally we discussed all of the options which included our Image 6 and Image 18 systems with a single or double barre, our Image R removable barres, and also our height adjustable barres. Sally explained that the mirror and barre system would need to be protected and safe for other activities such as parties and meetings. Together we decided that our high impact Image 18 system with double barre would be perfect for this kind of area.

Image 18 system

Our Image 18 system features our standard continuous reflection with added safety benefits.  The community hub walls were made of blockwork, which can in some cases be uneven, but with our system of aluminium trim and 12mm closed cell, fire retardant polystyrene back we are able to allow for inconsistencies on the walls. The polystyrene also adds another layer of safety making it more impact resistant in multi-function spaces – the end result –  a clear and true reflection!

Impact Protection

Sally also mentioned that she’d like our impact protection bags for even more safety. Made from 10 mm thick high density foam, encased in a tough and hardwearing PVC layer, these are great for covering the mirrors when not in use. Using steel hooks installed above the run of mirrors these are easily hung up and removed.

As you can see from the pictures the new mirrors are a great addition to this space. Sally had this to say about the service from Glass Installations ‘I would recommend Glass Installations because they are simple to work with, the communication is very easy. The installation doesn’t take long and the finished product is of a high quality’.

It was a pleasure dealing with Scraptoft Parish Council.
