Large clock at school keeps everyone on time

Large clock at school keeps everyone on time
11/02/2020

When Crofton school completed their building renovations, they wanted a large clock to feature on the blank wall of the stairwell, however with only lightweight cladding they were worried the clock would be too heavy. They also wanted a modern style to suit the refurbished building, so individual rectangular chapters and straight baton hands were the ideal answer.

First, we created visuals for the school team to approve prior to manufacturing the clock. Our engineers then went to site and black painted metal rectangles denoting the hours were individually fitted to the wall to create an impressive 6ft diameter clock. The clock hands are operated by our heavy duty CL300 mechanism with a shaft that goes through the wall for support, with the mechanism and clock controller neatly housed inside an electrical box on the inside of the building easily accessible by the stairs.

Using our state of the art Total Control System clock controller with a battery back up means that the clock will always be accurate and automatically adjust the for the summer and winter time changes too.
