ASSA ABLOY Security Doors is to supply and install fire-rated steel doorsets to a significant new development on London’s Canary Wharf estate.
The global leader in door opening solutions has been selected by Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd to product more than 600 steel doorsets, including personnel and fire doors for the New District development.
The doors are set to be fitted in the basement areas, being prepared for future access control requirements.
Project Manager at Canary Wharf Contractors, Peter Mather, commented: “ASSA ABLOY Security Doors was selected as it provided an integrated manufacture, delivery and installation of doorsets and ironmogery that suited the technical and architectural needs of the project.
“This integration gives us comfort of compatibility and certification, while also allowing the future proofing of the doorsets for later requirements.”
High-end ironmongery from the ASSA ABLOY Skyline range is featured, which combines sleek visuals with functionality, making it ideal for use in modern buildings.
The New District is situated east on the Canary Wharf estate; built around a 211 metre, 57 storey skyscraper. As well as residential properties, the development features commercial office space, plus spaces for retail and amenities.
The production of these steel doorsets is underway, with installation scheduled for throughout 2018.
Area Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, Chris Cole, commented: “We understand how crucial it is for a project of this scale to ensure the products supplied are fully tested, certified and compliant with the stringent fire and security requirements.
“We are honoured to collaborate with Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd again by taking part in such an ambitious development. This contributes to our recent successes with 22 Churchill Place and Jubilee Place projects, as well as the Crossrail project’s new Canary Wharf station.”
