School lockdown – the foundation of a security plan

Access control is the way a school manages credentials and the access and egress of its staff, students, and visitors daily. It’s the most critical aspect of any school safety strategy. However, in the event of an emergency, access control is not enough.


Reflecting designer accents

More than a year in the making, Verta’s story starts with a vision of an exceptional range of stainless steel furniture.  Working closely with a local design team, that vision was realised with a modern interpretation of a classic, functional product.

Starting with a traditional square shape, Verta features subtle design elements to define, elevate and modernise. Echoing classic lines with bevelled edges and radius corners, Verta features a central lineal crease - creating architectural planes that reflect light in every direction.

Constructed from marine-grade 316 stainless steel, each Verta lever transitions from a straight edge to a gently curved back, creating a soft touching point.  The juxtaposition of hard and soft, straight and curved, creates tactile surfaces which surprise and delight.
