Door Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, has launched two new high performance steel doorsets within its Powershield Security Doorset range.
The new SR3 and SR4 steel door ranges, also known as Torr and Titan, have been developed from scratch, to offer a product compatible with increased frame and ironmongery options, allowing greater freedom of design for architects and specifiers.
The doors are suitable for an extensive range of sectors, including banks, power stations, hospitals, safe rooms, MOD buildings, personal security, arenas and stadiums.
After listening to customers requirements, the Torr and Titan ranges have been redeveloped to replace the Glen and Strangford security doors and are certified under LPS1175 Issue 7 to withstand against sustained, professional burglar and vandal attacks.
The launch guarantees specifiers, architects and contractors can source a complete doorset solution from one trusted single point of contact.
Compatible with a wide range of Kaye Certified locking systems, in single and double configurations, the two new door ranges can also come with or without LPS rated and certified vision panels, in a range of frame styles.
With a leaf and frame weight reduction of up to 40% from previous ranges, the Torr and Titan ranges are overall easier to install, handle and lighter to use – making them an ideal choice for a wide range of projects.
The ranges prioritise both the performance and the aesthetic of the doorsets, completely removing industrial looking features from the outside of the door leaf, and reducing the leaf skin thickness to tighten the folds and create a softer aesthetic.
The new high security doorsets now look almost identical to standard commercial doorsets, perfect for those looking for discreet or inconspicuous solutions.
Brian Sofley, MD at ASSA ABLOY Door Group, commented: “We are always looking for ways to develop ourselves and our trade, ensuring that we deliver the highest quality products and services on the market. I believe both the Torr and Titan ranges really embody this value.
“We are confident that the two new ranges will exceed the needs of our customers and specifiers, providing a durable solution which achieves the performance demands required.”
