 Complete door opening solution by ASSA ABLOY
ASSA, a part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of the ASSA ABLOY Group, has supplied a complete door opening solution, as part of a £14million redevelopment project at the University of Northampton.

The refurbishment, which consists of an £11million project to create a new home for the School of Science and Technology and a further £3.5million extension of the School of Education, is part of a larger project designed to further enhance facilities at the University.

A total of 250 doors were upgraded to ASSA hardware, with ASSA Twin Combi 5800 Cylinders in modular lockcases used to secure sensitive office areas and attractive ASSA return to door lever handles used in public areas.

To assist the University of Northampton in fulfilling the duties under the Equality Act 2010, helping specifically to meet with BS8300 and Approved Document M guidelines, ASSA cam motion door closers were used.
The cam motion closers maintain closing power but require less opening force at the beginning of the cycle, the most strenuous part of opening a door, making it particularly suitable for use by the disabled and in high traffic areas.

Matthew Waite, Estates Manager at the University of Northampton, said: "We were particularly keen to use the Twin Combi 5800 cylinders for their high security and resistance to any known form of picking. With offices often containing sensitive documentation and expensive equipment, they are just as important to secure as residential areas."

"ASSA are highly respected across the education sector, and it was very important for use high quality hardware and door furniture to compliment our ongoing and high end refurbishment project."

Tom Jones, Specification Development Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, commented:

"ASSA are highly respected across the education sector, and it was very important for use high quality hardware and door furniture to compliment our ongoing and high end refurbishment project"

"The fact that ASSA hardware has been used to secure a prestigious project like the University of Northampton refurbishment only serves to reinforce the company's commitment to providing high quality door opening solutions to the education sector."

"The redevelopment includes such innovative features as a new NVision 3D immersive technology centre, as well as housing the East Midlands' Non-Destructive Testing centre, so it was important that the security solutions provided were equally as forward-thinking."

ASSA-branded products can be accessed through the UK operating company, ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions. For further information, please contact ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions on 020 8688 5191 or visit
