ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions has launched a new design manual for managing security and door hardware maintenance on healthcare and education projects. The manual is already being put to use on projects at Loughborough University, the University of Edinburgh and BMI Healthcare.
The document offers a door-by-door breakdown of product information to ensure that all hardware is uniform and compliant with the latest legislation and standards.
The design manual has been developed in conjunction with end-user management teams to ensure that security systems, access control and door hardware are consistent across entire organisations.
Paul Johnson of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions elaborated: “Having a design manual ensures that end users receive the quality solutions they require, rather than cost-saving products that may sometimes be installed during design and build projects, which may not be of a high enough standard for continual application.”
Phil Sheppard from Loughborough University added: “ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions walked the buildings around our campus to gain an understanding of our existing security systems. This enabled them to tailor security solutions that would provide better whole life costing for the university, through providing quality products that reduce our maintenance, repair and replacement expenditure.”
