Electric bolts from Alpro Architectural Hardware are protecting students, staff and visitors at the University of Westminster headquarters in Regent Street, London. The Alpro EB1001 is a 12 VDC stainless steel bolt and strike plate assembly with a 15mm diameter and throw. It allows remote access and exit control of most timber, metal and UPVC doors. The units offer installers optimum flexibility and can be fitted in the frame or on the door itself. A plug-in LED bolt indicator and stainless steel dress plate for covering the brushed aluminium faceplate are supplied as standard. Facilities managers can set the auto relock function for 0, 3, 6 or 9 seconds and installers can use a chromate steel surface mounting kit where required. These bolt and strike plates operate with an activating current of 1000mA and a holding current of 250mA. They feature a continuously rated solenoid and are fully protected against transient and reverse polarity. The varied installation options are designed to provide concealed high security locking on any single or double-action hinged or sliding door in timber or metal for vertical or horizontal mounting. Keith Parry, Divisional Sales Manager at Alpro, said: “Our coverage is nationwide but in the capital alone, Alpro equipment has been installed at landmarks and major infrastructure sites including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the London Eye and St Pancras International. The university’s Regent Street site has a ramped entrance and stair climbers, and the Alpro units have been installed in compliance with the Disability and Discrimination Act 2004, this being standard practice across all of the company’s operations.” The University of Westminster currently has over 20,000 students from 150 countries and is recognised for excellence in both undergraduate achievement and research work across art and design, electronic engineering and the media. The Regent Street premises have been a centre for public education since 1840. The Alpo bolts and strike plates are protecting a building which houses the Vice Chancellor’s office, the school of social sciences and the departments of humanities and languages. Former students of the University of Westminster include fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and pop musician Charlie Watts.
During the major reconstruction and refurbishment of Kings Cross and St.Pancras stations Alpro (part of IEC, Ltd.) were called upon to supply high security access control products to compliment the developments. Alpro supplied solenoid bolts and 8 bit keypads within the development to ensure that areas not open to the public were protected at all times. The Alpro HID prox keypad is a virtually indestructible keypad with a HID reader offering the security industry the best of both worlds. Coupled with the high quality solenoid bolts the overall access control solution was completely cost effective for such a prestigious development as this. Tom Courtney, Alpro's Area Sales Manager, commented: "The client needed a speedy solution which was both high quality and cost effective. With the products supplied here, Alpro were able to achieve both aspects of the initial design brief. Another good example of Alpro's ability to solve client's problems".
Alpro Hardware recently installed its "Swift" range of auto door operators on doors located at Reading FC. As part of the new Disability and Discrimination Act 2004, doors between the football stadium and hotel needed to be easily accessible by all. The Alpro "Swift" range fitted the bill. Easy to install and aesthetically pleasing the Swift 02 operators allowed the doors to be automatically operated when approached from either side. The Swift solution to the problem was both cost effective and quick to install, thereby ensuring minimum disruption to both hotel and football personnel alike.Keith Parry, Alpro's Product Manager said: "Here was a major football club newly promoted to the Premiership ensuring that their facilities are in line with current legislation and ensuring the sport can be enjoyed by all. By understanding what our customer requirements were, we were able to install cost effective solutions, which conform to current government legislation. Another example of Alpro working in partnership to solve even the most taxing access scenarios."
