ASSA ABLOY Security Doors secures another major station on the Crossrail project

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has been awarded the contract to supply fire, security and personnel steel doorsets on the Crossrail project at its new Woolwich station.

Main contractor Balfour Beatty has selected ASSA ABLOY Security Doors to supply approximately 200 doorsets, which include fire doors, specialist security doors meeting LPS 1175 security standards and other high-performance doors that are tailored to the specific requirements of the new Woolwich station site.

The Woolwich contract is the latest in a series of successful appointments for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors on the Crossrail project, which include Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road and Farringdon station sites. The organisation has also supplied security doors to a range of other sites related to Crossrail, including the Victoria Dock Portal and Custom House and Mile End stations.

Nigel Cronin, Area Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “While major projects of this nature are not without their challenges, as one of the largest suppliers of security doors in the UK, we have the knowledge, expertise and experience to confidently meet the demands of these complex projects.

“We understand how important doors are to critical infrastructure and the need for them to be fully tested, certified and compliant with the stringent fire and security requirements of these projects.

“The new station is a key part of a significant regeneration plan to help transform Woolwich, with 3,750 homes being built in the area, as well as investment in new cultural, heritage, commercial and leisure quarters. We are thrilled to be able to support a prestigious project of this scale, contributing to the latest chapter in London’s transport legacy.”
