Urban Edge for James Terry Court
Originally a family home, James Terry Court in South Croydon was converted into a care home in 1980. It has retained its homely atmosphere and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has recently undergone a new build of an East Wing to provide the most modern care home facilities; it exceeds all the latest government guidelines and legislation for size, accessibility and facilities.
The new facilities include up to 48 bed-sitting rooms with large communal areas providing 20 residential rooms, 20 rooms for nursing care and 8 rooms for dementia care. The wing has full en-suite wet rooms and ceiling hoists in large spacious bedrooms. In April 2012, the second phase of the project will be started; the West Wing will provide a further 28 bedrooms and the remodelling and refurbishing of the home’s main building will provide independent living flats.
Once complete, 464 Urban Edge doorsets will have been supplied to the home. The Urban Edge range is the perfect choice for high volume residential developments like James Terry Court offering exceptional style and flexibility from the standard range to the freedom of a more bespoke range.
The Urban Edge range of doorsets, has been designed to meet and exceed the needs of sectors such as care homes, city apartments, key worker living, hotels, student accommodation and modular build are unique.
The doorsets supplied to James Terry Court are finished fully painted and also some in American White Oak Veneer, all with 30 minutes fire resistance. Veneered doorsets incorporate Hygienilac within the wood lacquer as standard on all doorsets.

EnduraCor allows for doors with increased width and height to be specified, ideal for care home environments which require easy access and specialised facilities.
