ASSA ABLOY – spotlight on physical security

ASSA ABLOY, the world’s largest lock manufacturer, will showcase its extensive range of physical security products at IFSEC 2009 at the NEC in Birmingham, 11 - 14 May 2009.

With several brands specialising in physical security, the ASSA ABLOY Group can offer world-leading door solutions from a single source.  Group companies including the likes of Adams Rite, Mul-T-Lock, ASSA ABLOY Door Solutions and Pemko offer a vast range of architectural ironmongery and door sealing systems suitable for a variety of door types including timber, steel, and aluminium. Powershield and Safeguard doors manufacture high performance steel and specialist security doors.

Tina Ainsworth, Head of Marketing at Adams Rite, commented: “As the global leader in door opening solutions, ASSA ABLOY supplies physical security products across all sectors and provides services such as design, scheduling, supply, installation, key suiting, project management, training and post contract support.   Each product is designed to integrate perfectly with suitable products from across the range to provide physical security solutions that are tailored to meet client demands.”

One of the latest products on display will be the new Sentinel 6 Deadlock, high security escutcheon and six-pin cylinder.  This package has helped Adams Rite to enhance its reputation for quality, value and performance in security solutions for glazed aluminium hardware as it takes the complete doorset beyond the LPS1175 standard for commercial and retail premises.

Pemko door sealing systems offer a complete door sealing solution for a variety of door types that not only meet, but often surpass current UK Building Regulations Approved Documents. 

Examples of high performance steel doors from Powershield will also be on display.  These products have been designed to provide protection for all types of installation and benefit from deep-pocket interlocking steel skins to provide added strength and rigidity.  Each product is designed to integrate perfectly with appropriate ASSA ABLOY ironmongery including the new ASSURE panic exit range. See for yourself the robust door designs which have been installed on a variety of profile sites, including the O2 Millennium Dome and Airbus UK.

ASSA ABLOY timber doors are all supplied as factory finished integrated door and ironmongery sets.  Fitted with the Nemef ironmongery range, including high-quality lock cases, multi-point locks, door furniture and access control products, each door is manufactured to suit almost any application whether the need is for high security protection,  compliance with safety regulations or a reliable high traffic installation .  

ASSA ABLOY’s range of doors is complemented by Safeguard Doors’ bespoke high quality security, bullet resistant and bomb blast doors.  Approved by HM Government, these doors have a discreet appearance to enhance protection and can accommodate all locking systems and ironmongery including single-point and multi-point locking and access control.
