The London Underground has 1.265 billion passengers per year and has been an iconic part of the capital for over 150 years.

Scope of Works

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors has recently supplied its doorsets to various tube stations, including Bond Street, Canary Wharf, Kings Cross, Westminster and Waterloo, as part of a regeneration and maintenance programme.

The works

Due to the nature of the London Underground project, internal steel fire doors are an essential safety feature within busy public developments. Compared to alternative materials, steel doors can provide a higher level of fire protection, helping to prevent the spread of fire and maximise evacuation time. Additionally, steel doors demonstrate superior strength and durability, combined with relatively low maintenance requirements making them an ideal choice for high traffic areas

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors’ high specification doorsets, which comprise high performance steel doors, London Underground ASSA ABLOY approved ironmongery and hold a 60 minute fire rating audited by Exova Warringtonfire under the Certifire Compliance scheme were supplied to the projects. In addition, some steel doors using electro-magnetic hold open devices were fitted to help with high traffic on fire escape routes.
