RAAC in School Buildings AV Help

We have been made aware of the situation regarding RAAC in School Buildings, by some of our existing schools and colleges and the media. This situation where some schools have had to close and are looking for alternative classrooms rather than moving to online learning has caused them to get in touch for us to either move their classroom Audio Visual provision to the new location or to provide them with new portable Interactive Screens or Whiteboards.

What is RAAC in School Buildings?

The government has ordered 104 English schools, nurseries and colleges with reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) to close affected buildings immediately until safety measures, such as propping up ceilings, are introduced. This is because there are concerns that RAAC is prone to collapse.
