Adams Rite scores with Leeds United


Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY, has supplied products from its Maximum Security deadlock range for an exciting renovation at Leeds United Football Club.

The project is part of a five-phase development of the club’s iconic East Stand.

Adams Rite’s Maximum Security products have been installed as part of a complete doorset in the grand entrance of the famous Elland Road stadium, as well as in the corporate boxes, providing security and accessibility throughout prominent and frequently used areas of the ground.

Doncaster-based Aluminium systems fabricator and installer, Danum Windows Ltd, manufactured the doors featuring Adams Rite’s Maximum Security mechanical lock for the high-profile refurbishment.

Paul Blythe, Commercial Manager for Danum Windows Ltd, said:

“We’ve worked with Adams Rite before, and always had a good experience. We know how much time Adams Rite commits to developing products that adhere to the latest industry standards, so we were confident that its Maximum Security range would be ideal for this high profile application, where access and security products must be hardwearing and reliable, in order to compliment panic and emergency regulation-standard door sets. 

“At Leeds United, we supplied a lot of high-spec curtain walling and sliding-doors, in-keeping with the design-led interior, particularly in the corporate boxes. While the design is striking, the most important thing, for us, was supplying door solutions that ensured the building could be used safely and securely.”

Steve Rigby, Regional Sales Manager for Adams Rite, said:

“It’s an exciting time for the club, but projects on such a large-scale require experienced contractors and suppliers to consider and solve access and safety issues. The completed doorsets not only address building access and fire safety, but our long-standing relationship with Danum Windows Ltd, meant the doorsets were supplied on time enabling the completion of this high-profile project.”

Adams Rite is the leading supplier of aluminium door locking, electric locking and escape devices, supplying the top OEM door manufacturers worldwide.

The company is part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions. For more information visit
