Polar 30 with Kross Glaze,
The RJ & KD Mcleans Project
Background and Building
RJ & KD Mcleans are suppliers and buyers of second-hand agricultural equipment, including tractors and diggers. Occupying the ground floor of their office building, the client underwent a complete fit out to help make the space more purposeful, practical and impactful.
The Brief in Brief
In order to help the office work for its employees and future plans, the brief included both individual and collaborative spaces within a light and bright environment.
For RJ & KD Mcleans, wellbeing considerations needed to be at the forefront of the design, especially within the midst of the pandemic. Therefore, Jade Aden helped create an environment where employees could feel safe, concentrate, and engage as a team.
Beautiful design was also at the heart of the brief; not only was the space to be made functional, but also impressive and memorable in its initial impression. Striking graphics of agricultural settings and natural tones were used throughout the space to help reflect the works and surrounding environment of RJ & KD Mcleans. Additionally, a skylight LED panel was designed above the kitchen to help connect employees with the outside world.
To help achieve the brief, Komfort’s Polar 30 single glazed partitioning with applied Kross Glaze, Komfire 100 solid partitioning and timber doors were incorporated into the design.
Komfort’s frameless single glazed partitioning creates a minimal and premium aesthetic and was installed with Kross Glaze applied bars to add a modern aesthetic. The glazing allows light to travel around the room and create a feeling of openness, all whilst providing high acoustic ratings of up to 40dB (Rw). Komfort’s full height timber doors were also installed to complement the partitioning and add warmth with the natural finish.
Komfort’s Komfire 100 solid partitioning system was installed underneath the ceiling to help divide the space. This system offers very high-performance credentials achieving acoustics ratings of up to 52dB (Rw) and a fire rating of 60/60. Due to the design of Komfire, the graphics could be applied directly to the face of the system.
The end result
Komfort worked very closely with Jade Aden to help interpret the design brief to create a space that RJ & KD Mcleans are proud of. The installation of the partitioning and doors systems ensured a high-quality finish and we look forward to working with Jade Aden on many more projects in the near future.
“Working with Komfort on this specific job was seamless. The design process was very customer friendly and they took all the issues out of our hands. Delivery was prompt and included everything that was needed. I would thoroughly recommend using Komfort for any partitioning needs. The products are of a high-quality, and always long-standing.” Callum Foy, Jade Aden
