Ingersoll Rand's access control technology at work at Essex College

Ingersoll Rand supplies access control products to Suffolk College
Martin Roberts Louvered Steel security door sets are ideal for protecting areas which require ventilation
Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies supplied a large quantity of ironmongery from its Briton and CISA product ranges as well as its Martin Roberts steel door sets for the £44 million replacement building at Suffolk New College in Ipswich, Essex. They supplied everything from the steel door sets to the associated hardware including door controls, lock cases, exit hardware cylinders locks and pull handles. This installation provided a sense of uniformity and continuity throughout the scheme and as the steel door sets were supplied complete with hardware it meant labour time and costs on-site were reduced.

The Briton 1100 Series of door closers were specified as they offer a concise and cost-effective door closing solution benefiting from a wide variety of features and options, including fully adjustable power sizes, back-check facility and the unique Accufit back plate system for reduced installation time and improved accuracy of fitting. The CE marked range is fully certified to EN 1154 and EN 1634, carries a ten year guarantee and has been fully tested to 500,000 opening cycles. 

CISA 7500 Series cylinders together with Briton 5500 Series lock cases added to the co-ordinated overall design for the project. The 7500 series is specially designed for this type of medium security application. It features a patented system which utilises a side 'check pin' which must be raised by the special undercut on the key profile. This feature makes unauthorised copying of keys virtually impossible.

As well as the standard Martin Roberts steel door sets installed throughout the college, Martin Roberts Louvered Steel door sets were used for plant rooms and service areas. As with all steel doors, they are durable, impact resistant, unaffected by moisture, will not warp or rot and in addition are ideal for protecting areas which require ventilation without compromising security.

Full details about the different series are available from Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies on +44 192 270 7400 or from the company's website.
