Project Manager at Canary Wharf Contractors, Peter Mather, commented: “ASSA ABLOY Security Doors was selected as it provided an integrated manufacture, delivery and installation of doorsets and ironmogery that suited the technical and architectural needs of the project.
“This integration gives us comfort of compatibility and certification, while also allowing the future proofing of the doorsets for later requirements.”

The New District is situated east on the Canary Wharf estate; built around a 211 metre, 57 storey skyscraper. As well as residential properties, the development features commercial office space, plus spaces for retail and amenities.
The production of these steel doorsets is underway, with installation scheduled for throughout 2018.
Area Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, Chris Cole, commented: “We understand how crucial it is for a project of this scale to ensure the products supplied are fully tested, certified and compliant with the stringent fire and security requirements.
