Prince Charles given a thermally efficient welcome in Stoke

Jack Aluminium: When HRH Prince Charles walked through the entrance to the Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent it is unlikely he knew he was walking through one of the most thermally efficient commercial doors on the market, Jack Aluminium’s Jack Door TD68.

The Prince visited the academy to meet students on The Prince’s Trust Industrial Cadets scheme. He was also given a tour of the state-of-the-art building. Jack Aluminium’s high usage Jack Door TD68 was chosen for the £23M project by Duplus Architectural Systems, the glazing and curtain walling contractor.

Jeff Pearson, Jack Aluminium’s sales director says: “Jack Door TD68 is ideal for schools and public buildings with its low U-value of 1.7, high throughput, ability to take electric strike opening and an automatic door header bar option for high foot traffic or disabled access. I hope the Prince took notice of Jack Door’s thermal efficiency when he visited. Who knows, maybe he’ll choose it for Clarence House!”
