Although operating during a time where travel has been drastically reduced, we were pleased that one of our recent projects took us through the beautiful Canadian province of Québec. Heading east of our headquarters, we travelled to beautiful Sept-Îles, which as its name would suggest, is made up of seven main islands in the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence River.
As one of the only locales in the region with a paved connection to the remainder of the province’s road network, the town is also home to a number of major iron companies. Sept-Îles has produced a number of NHL players including the great Guy Charbonneau and is the subject of the popular Gordon Lightfoot song “Seven Island Suite”.
Located in the centre of town, our project took place at École secondaire Jean-Du-Nord, which serves as the local high school for the region.
Following some recent renovations, our team was called upon to assess the condition of the dividers located in the school’s gymnasium as well as to provide a suitable solution to replace them.
Inside the gym were two outdated cable-driven fold-up gym curtains that were deemed no longer safe for students and staff members. Provided with the proper measurements and working with key stakeholders, our team took all information into consideration when providing an updated solution to the school’s needs.
It was decided that the solution would comprise of our state-of-the-art top-roll gym divider curtains. These curtains not only look amazing once installed, they eliminate the need for cables or belts and require a mere 14” of vertical storage space. Operating virtually maintenance free, these curtains are among our most popular and continue to serve schools across Canada and the United States as the premiere option for gymnasium division.
