New Disability and Discrimination (2004) legislation now in force has had a profound effect on service providers with regards to accessibility for disabled people to access goods and services. Alpro Hardware (IEC Ltd.), specialists in innovative access solutions and access control systems, is at the forefront of this initiative supplying its automated door systems range of "Swift" operators and accessories. Approached for advice on two Post Office locations, Alpro has recently supplied and installed door access solutions, to comply with the latest requirements of this new act. Swift 02 automatic operators were fitted to main entrance doors to facilitate ease of ingress and egress for customers of the Post office. Keith Parry, Alpro Hardware's Product Manager stated: "With the ever increasing needs and requirements of an ever changing environment, it is vital that Alpro keep abreast of new technologies and legislation. What we have here is just such an example of Alpro's industry knowledge coupled with its extensive access solutions product range facilitating and fulfilling customer needs and expectations."
When technology giant Olympus Osyris developed in conjunction with the UK National Health Service an integrated suite of component modules for improving blood transfusion safety, they turned to Alpro to provide electronic locking to store and track the units of blood.The system known as "Bloodtrak" ensures the right blood is given to the right patient and has been proven in hospitals around the world. Each fridge and blood safe is locked by an Alpro cabinet lock and each hospital generally uses 4-6 storage units. Blood transfusion is a complex process and is fraught with opportunities for potential error. By using Alpro cabinet locks, the blood is electronically locked away and when blood units are required can be traced from source at the touch of a button.Richard Dee, Commercial Operations, Olympus UK, said, "The Alpro product is a perfect product for us because of its size, robustness and standards approvals (CE-BSEN 50081-1 and BSEN 50082-1), plus the price is good."Another example of Alpro working in conjunction with customers and suppliers alike to find innovative solutions to serious problems.
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.
