ASSA ABLOY steps up security at new Investigation Centre

  • 23 May 2019

A full safety and security package from ASSA ABLOY High Security & Safety Group has been specified at the new Eastern Hampshire Police Investigation Centre in Portsmouth.

Working with Hampshire Police, ASSA ABLOY provided a complete package of doorset solutions, including custodial doors and high performance acoustic timber doors.

The ASSA ABLOY team, which has a strong heritage of developing complete solutions for custodial premises, specified a diverse range of doors to fulfil the security requirements of different areas of the station, such as exercise yard doors, holding cell doors and personnel doors.

Michael Dunn, Commercial Director, commented: “The new police centre integrates an investigation hub with a custody suite, making the specification for security, safety and accessibility quite complex.

“The facility accommodates over 350 staff members, as well as 36 detention cells, which are in operation 24/7, 365 days a year.

“Managing the different needs of the building and its users was a key challenge when it came to the specification process, but thanks to our expertise and extensive product portfolio – from high security doorsets and glazed doors to steel duct and decency doors, we were able to specify a complete doorset and security package tailored to the needs of the project.”

Moira Anderson, from Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioners’ office, commented: “The Police Investigation Centre at Portsmouth is part of the next generation of police facilities and the multi-purpose use of these sites require a more extensive and varied suite of high security and safety solutions.

“The doorset specification installed across the site is integral to the overall performance and function of the building, at all times prioritising the safety of building users.”
