For its new Faculty of Business and Law building, dormakaba has supplied the University of the West of England with high security mechanical locking systems.

Located on the Frenchay Campus, the Bristol-based University’s new Faculty of Business and Law Building comprises two showcase law courts, a city trading room, a 300-seat lecture theatre, two Harvard lecture theatres and technology-enhanced active learning classrooms.

The £55 million state-of-the-art project required the specification of the Kaba 20 and Kaba Quattro plus ranges, ensuring that the relationship between the two, that spans over 40 years, maintains its strength.

Having supplied Mechanical Key systems previously for the UWE site, dormakaba was the obvious choice when it came to a mechanical locking system for the new building.

The Kaba 20 and Quattro plus Master Key systems used allow selected keys to open a number of pre-defined doors and are compatible with a variety of locks. The Faculty of Business and Law Building has had over 500 new dormakaba cylinders installed in Kaba 20 and Kaba Quattro plus ranges.

For the estates and security teams at UWE, the master key system allows quick access to all rooms to aid fast evacuation. With individuals in possession of a single master key to unlock all doors, it also makes for a lower number of keys remaining in circulation. The flexibility of the system means it can also evolve with UWE – helping to futureproof the installation.

Jenny Ford, Security Systems Officer at UWE commented: “I have never had any doubt when it comes to the use of dormakaba systems – I would recommend the company to anyone in the education sector considering an upgrade in their security locking. I know that I can trust them to deal with any query I have or piece of advice I need.”
