Security expert Abloy UK has helped to supply a bespoke electric locking solution for Kite House, a new care facility in Crediton, Devon.

Crediton Care & Support Homes Ltd (CCSH), operators of Kite House, provide residential care for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.

Kite House is a barn conversion that offers a comprehensive range of residential, day-care and domiciliary services.

Exeter-based Guardian Security take charge of all CCSH’s security needs, which included the decision to choose the ideal solution to fit the specific needs of Kite House.

Access control specialist Guardian Security developed a security solution which saw seven Abloy solenoid electric locks specified, working in tandem with the access control system.

Vital for Kite House is the capability to lock down the facilities at any given point plus close off areas such as the kitchen and quiet rooms if required.

Another request was for the house to feel less like a hospital and more like a home, with the intention of making patients feel more at ease in their surroundings.

The Abloy locks used can withstand the heavy usage of people using the door, making them the perfect choice for this installation. Only the outside handle is electrically controlled and the lock can always be opened by the inside handle for easy exiting.

Sean Monger, on behalf of Guardian Security, commented: “For Kite House we had quite specific requirements when it came to access control. The locking solutions didn’t just need to be functional – they also had to be durable and of the highest quality.

“Abloy was the first choice, as its locks offered the highest quality and reliability, were able to withstand physical strength, and they also conform to regulations and compliance.”

James Moore of CCSH, added: “The works that were undertaken were done to a high standard and they have been helpful in responding to any enquiries that we have had.”
