Door Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, has recently supplied a number of high-security steel doorsets to Network Rail for the upgrade of its remote signal rooms.
The project was commissioned through Kent-based trade customer Taylor Refit, who removed the existing doors and installed new high-security steel doorsets certified to LPS 1175 security ratings from the Powershield range.
The aim of the project was to heighten the security level of the signal rooms, due to recent vandalism, whilst providing a cost-effective solution. The upgrade comes as part of Network Rail’s plan to heighten the security level to its signal rooms following the recent vandalism.
ABLOY Protec cylinders were also incorporated into the specialist locks throughout the sites.
fortunately, disruption to services was minimal thanks to the easy-to-install products which allowed Taylor Refit to remove and install the security doors in just one day.
Chris Cole, Area Sales Manager (SE & London) for Door Group comments: “We are delighted that Network Rail gave us the opportunity to provide superior security doorsets to this project and we hope to build on our relationship in the future.
“We pride ourselves on supplying high-quality products and we work closely with our customers to understand their specific requirements and to provide specialist and tailored solutions. We had to ensure that the doorsets we were supplying offered maximum security, as per the customer’s specifications.”
Door Group’s work with Network Rail follows a number of high-profile contracts with Transport for London and Crossrail Limited.
