ASSA ABLOY: Openings Studio™ simplifies complex projects in Denmark

  • 28 Jun 2023

Østre Landsret, the High Court for Denmark’s Eastern region, handles both civil and criminal cases. At large new premises, specifiers equipped more than 650 doors and coordinated multiple project stakeholders, including Swedoor, a major Swedish supplier of doors and related technologies. ASSA ABLOY was involved…

The process required delivery of accurate door specifications directly to building project models in Revit® and other design software. Errors in the delivery of doors and security components can be costly, in terms of both time and money; minimising mistakes speeds up the build.

Transparency is also critical. Multiple project stakeholders need to always see and use the design model — and trust completely that specification details are current.

ASSA ABLOY’s Openings Studio™ achieved this and more. This intuitive door specification software simplifies the flow of specification information between all stakeholders over the timeline of any project.


In Denmark and elsewhere, Openings Studio has also become the focal point of collaboration between ASSA ABLOY, Swedoor, locksmiths, building contractors and architects — saving time and streamlining project operations.

Coordinating specification information and the door meeting

Openings Studio software connects architectural design software with databases which hold specification data for door solutions. When approved by project managers, it can deliver detailed specifications directly to popular design packages such as Revit® and ARCHICAD®

For complex design-and-build projects, it has become essential, as Per Løvstad, sales manager at SWEDOOR JW Denmark, explains…

He says: “Our cooperation consists of a total review of the entire door project, door by door, so that our mutual customer feels safe and secure that the doors and the entire package fit together.

“Openings Studio is the tool which underpins the door meeting, ensuring efficient decision-making and component delivery.”

Ole Madsen, from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Denmark, comments: “We go through all doors in the project, one door at a time.

“We determine colour, size, door thickness, and how the sill should be. Eventually hardware specification in Openings Studio is aligned with the function of the doors. We show 3D visualization of the building in the Openings Studio on a large screen and go through the hardware schedule.”

ASSA ABLOY’s ability to supply a comprehensive range of mechanical and electronic door solutions was another time-saver at Østre Landsret. The court features ASSA ABLOY DC700 Cam-Motion Door Closers, Triton mechanical locking cylinders, panic devices, EL480/EL580/PE590 electric and electromagnetic locks.

Openings Studio software streamlined all relevant information flows – Ole Madsen adds: “The contractor and the hardware store… can see the same as the rest of us, even without having Revit on their PC.

Per Løvstad says: “I can only recommend this collaboration to anyone who has to go through larger projects with doors and fittings.”
