Good Directions created a contemporary lightweight clock for the exterior wall of Crofton School in Hampshire as part of its building renovations.
The school wanted a large clock to feature on the blank wall of the stairwell. However, it was worried the clock would be too heavy for the lightweight cladding.
It also wanted a modern style to suit the refurbished building, so individual rectangular chapters and straight baton hands were considered the ideal answer.
Good Directions created visuals for the school team to approve prior to manufacturing the clock. Their 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 the company's heavy-duty CL300 mechanism with a shaft that goes through the wall for support. The mechanism and clock controller are neatly housed inside an electrical box on the inside of the building, easily accessible by the stairs.
Using their 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 for summer and winter time changes too.
