River Falls School District
New Doors & Hardware for New School Safety Priorities
River Falls Public School District was looking to improve student and staff safety city-wide.
In an age of growing concerns for school safety, River Falls Public Schools reviewed its current buildings and found that its existing doors and hardware were not meeting the needs of the district. The district brought Rice Lake Glass in, who partnered with other subcontractors to create a proposal that focused on safety, before successfully winning and completing the project.
Updates to Keep Kids Safer
The entranceways from many years ago no longer serve the safety and security needs schools are finding necessary today. Rice Lake Glass is proud to provide another level of safety for the students and staff within the River Falls School District.
Summer Break Leads to Tight Timeline
This project faced a tight timeline with a firm expected end-date.
Because the construction had to be completed prior to students and staff returning from summer break, staying on time wasn't just important, it was necessary. Rice Lake Glass was able to work quickly, and because we fabricate all of our doors in-house and keep a large inventory on had, the typical wait for material was avoided, saving about 8 weeks total from the schedule.
A Transformed School
With other trusted companies, Rice Lake Glass provided improved security, electronically-controlled exit devices, compatibility with existing access controls, and ease of use.
Within four weeks of the proposal, Rice Lake Glass started the complete removal and replacement of all existing entryways and hardware. Upon completing the project, over 20 exterior doors, frames, glass, and hardware throughout the entire school were replaced, all before students returned from summer break. River Falls School District, the staff, and students were very happy with the security improvements.
"Thank you for the great work that your company did at our school. Your staff were personable, professional and courteous. I could not have asked for more."
