ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions has worked with Warrior Doors to secure bin stores for Solihull Community Housing (SCH).
SCH is an Arm's Length Management Organisation (ALMO) set up in April 2004 to run the housing service on behalf of Solihull Council. SCH is undergoing a regeneration programme to upgrade the interiors, exteriors and surroundings for 35 high rise Social Housing council properties.
Aesthetic, vandal resistant bin store doors
As part of the phased regeneration, SCH decided that it needed to upgrade the bin store doors. The brief was specific: the doors had to be strong, aesthetically pleasing, vandal proof and vermin proof. They also had to be low maintenance, with low life cycle costs.
A total of 37 sets of dilapidated doors to the bin stores, which were prone to vandalism and arson were replaced with Warrior Doors’ high quality brushed stainless steel doors. The doors contained ASSA’s 2788 deadlocks, which offer a robust design ideal for high usage areas.
High security with low maintenance
Brian King, Project Manager at SCH, said, “Security was absolutely imperative and it was also important that we wouldn’t have any substantial maintenance issues for a long period of time.”
Dave Perryman, IT Operations and Project Manager at Warrior Doors Ltd, said, “We were aware that ASSA had extensive experience within social housing and they were able to provide us with the robust security solution we needed, to prevent people from breaking into the back of the tower blocks. I would have no hesitation working with ASSA in the future; the quality of their products is exceptional.”
Russell Richards, Regional Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said, “We are pleased to have been able to work with Warrior Doors to provide a secure solution for SCH, which will stand the test of time and consequently offer low life cycle costs.”
