KCC was delighted to be part of this prestigious new Student Learning Leisure and Sports Centre at Belfield Campus, UCD. Our mission was to combine extreme acoustic performance levels with fire resistance for timber doors within steel frame profiles. We were aware of the conflicts when trying to achieve acoustic performance and fire resistance in one space and we commissioned a specialist acoustic consultant to prepare project assessments for sound reduction to client requirements. KCC also drafted consultations on specialist applications for the door sets from engineers at Chiltern and International Fire Consultants to provide bespoke assessments and guidelines for their door assemblies.  To achieve the best results we use only premium product from partners who can provide tested solutions for our clients. BOS “Best of Steel” Telescopic Grade 316 Stainless and Powder Coated Steel Frames, Solidcore HPL Flush and Multiple Rebate Doors to fire and Acoustic Specifications and High Acoustic Performance Steel Door sets have been installed by the experienced and knowledgeable KCC fitters on the project.

With this wide range of experience and support from established partners, KCC were able to achieve a peak of performance not acquired from door assembly types before now thus setting a watermark for innovation in doorset technology.
