Specification Advice

Laidlaw’s team of GAI trained consultants are available to assist with all of the detailed product enquiries associated with the specification of fully integrated doorsets including guidance on the Equality ACT, AD M and BS 8300 or test certification for fire door applications.

Product Development 

Orbis products are subject to continual design and manufacturing development in order to improve performance or to meet the changing demands of standards, testing or other building legislation.

Project Management

Laidlaw’s scheduling team will produce fully detailed door and ironmongery schedules along with a full bill of materials. Laidlaw will then project manage the supply of product including the manufacture of special or bespoke items; supply relevant installation drawings; and, where necessary, certification and delivery schedules.

CPD Seminars

As part of our ongoing commitment to education and training, we offer a series of 5 RIBA approved CPDs including one of the core curriculum subjects, Access for All.

Packaging and Delivery

Laidlaw will work alongside the customer’s project management team to ensure the product arrives on site in the most appropriate form. This could include labelling to the architect’s door numbers, or already installed as part of the integrated doorset package. Laidlaw will ensure deliveries are made in full and on time.
