Vicaima doors at the Capelas Primary School


Vicaima was the brand chosen to supply the Capelas Primary School, a project focused on the renovation of the school development, which serves approximately 800 students. Located in Ponta Delgada, on the island of São Miguel, in the Azores, the Capelas Primary School included high performance and resistance Vicaima solutions, designed to further ensure an aesthetic component, based on the use of colours.

To fit out the different spaces, including classrooms, auditoriums, libraries, services, study rooms and other common areas, the Portaro® solution was adopted - this solution integrates door, frame and accessories in a single piece - offering 30 and 60 minute fire performance levels and certified by accredited international entities, which are essential for the security of its users within the school environment. Also worthy of note is the Portaro® with overpanel, a solution facilitating the passage of light between spaces, and the Portaro® Sliding solution, which optimises the use of surrounding spaces.

The choice of finishes was Dekordor® HD and SHD, from a wide range of colours such as Mustard Yellow, Carrot Orange, Breeze Blue, Liqueur Cream and Ash Grey, which were applied throughout the various floor levels in the school.

The solutions used by Vicaima at the Capelas Primary School reflect the elementary principles in projects of this nature, which include resistance, durability, easy cleaning, accessibility and security, thereby actively providing the necessary conditions for a safer and more functional setting for all members of the school community.
