ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has bagged a range of high-profile contracts with Transport for London and Crossrail Limited.
These contracts have seen security doors supplied and installed for major London Underground redevelopments such as London Bridge, Bond Street and King’s Cross, plus station upgrades like Victoria.
ASSA ABLOY Security Doors has then secured multiple contracts within the Crossrail construction programme. The new Transport for London-run Elizabeth line, which is built by Crossrail Limited, will open from December this year, serving 10 newly-built accessible stations.
Full doorset solutions have been delivered and installed to the new Elizabeth line stations at Canary Wharf, Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Woolwich and Custom House.
They have also been fitted at other sites along the route including Pudding Mill, Eleanor Street and Mile End, as well as at the Elizabeth line depot at Old Oak Common.
Each project posed its own demands and challenges in relation to product performance requirements; doorsets had to be fully compliant to achieve the latest standards and meet the specialist needs of each environment.
Factors which needed considering included fire, acoustics, air tightness, high-security and pressure resistance.
Decorative finishes such as vitreous enamel, stainless-steel and bronze cladding helped complement the visuals of the surroundings on doors that required a finishing touch, and many of the doorsets required installation in challenging conditions, being underground, with tight access and with restricted working hours.
Brian Sofley, Managing Director at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, commented: “Our experience working with London Underground provided us with the ideal foundation for supporting our working partners on the Crossrail project for new Elizabeth line stations.
“Each contract brought its own individual challenges, but from the very beginning we worked closely with the architects and contractors involved to understand their requirements.
“This meant we could provide specialist and tailored solutions that met their exact needs. Solutions were carefully chosen from both our Powershield and Prima steel door ranges including cross corridor doors for high traffic fire escape routes, and pivoted fire rated platform doors to conceal station equipment rooms.
“We take great pride in our wide portfolio of well-respected transport contracts. It says a great deal that customers choose to work with us time and time again, and we put this down to our full-service offering, financial stability, and expert advice at every stage of the project, from specification to installation and inspection.”
