Sandwell Academy

This state-of-the-art academy building has produced approximately 10,000 sq m of floor space for educational purposes, specialising in business and sport. The striking horseshoe-shaped two-storey academy surrounds a laned running track, enhancing the aspect of the academy.

The ironmongery specification had to meet the architect's ethos that in a school environment the least number of moving parts on the door, the better the door will function, allowing greater sustainability and minimum maintenance.

Main Contractor:



300+ doors


Full ironmongery package included hardly any lever handle sets. Architectural door closers combined with a push/pull function were mainly supplied.


The pull handle specification included support-bearing roses on both sides of the door and covered with large decorative and textured protection plates.


Yannedis supplied a grandmaster key system to include all aspects of the building and future developments. The system allows for keying control to the sports facilities which are located off-site and are accessed via a bridge.
