ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, the global leader in door opening solutions, has recently helped to secure the National Gallery of Ireland as part of an almost €30 million refurbishment of the 150-year old listed building.
The Dublin gallery required an extensive refurbishment and modernisation of its historic wings on Merrion Square, as well as an updated fire safety plan and better security.
The doorsets were specified by Henegan Peng Architects and then ASSA ABLOY Security Doors worked closely with Modubuild, a specialist trade contractor, alongside main contractors John Paul Construction to fulfil the specification.
Approximately 30 steel doorsets, including a mixture of LPS 1175 security rating and fire rated glass doorsets, were delivered to the Dargan and Milltown Wings in Merrion Square in order to maintain maximum security as well as adhere to the strictest fire safety regulations.
ASSA ABLOY Security Doors worked carefully to make the delivery as easy as possible in the busy city centre, and ensure that the project ran as simply and smoothly as possible.
Sean Rainbird, Director of the National Gallery of Ireland, explains: “For the first time the gallery has an integrated system of lighting, heating and security. It’s very much state of the art; we’ve been able to specify really good technical equipment.”
Stephen Wilkinson, Area Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, adds: “We had to ensure that the doorsets we were supplying were of the highest security rating as per the customer’s specifications. In addition to this, doors had to be certified to meet strict fire standards and our locking solutions had to include panic hardware as well as access control systems.”
