ASSA ABLOY at Building Future Education


Showcasing its heritage and experience in providing security and accessibility within the education sector, ASSA ABLOY is attending this year’s Building Future Education exhibition in London.

Held at The Business Design Centre, on 9th-10th May 2012, the exhibition will provide a platform for all key stakeholders in the education sector to discuss the biggest challenges facing the industry, while ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, will demonstrate the product portfolio it offers to respond to these issues, on stand Mezzanine 33.

Included in ASSA ABLOY’s display will be ASSA’s Smartair wireless electronic access control system, and UNION’s popular Codehandle, one of the most convenient but effective keyless locking systems on the market.

Additionally, the stand will exhibit a comprehensive range of electric strikes from Trimecâ, as well as door closers from ASSA ABLOY. The extensive door closer range includes cam motion variants, enabling doors to be easily opened by the young, the elderly or those with a disability, assisting in fulfilling the duties required under The Equality Act (EA), specifically BS8300 and Approved Document M of The Building Regulations.

ASSA ABLOY will look back at the numerous projects in which it has secured schools, universities and other educational institutes, to demonstrate its capabilities. For example, Cowes Secondary received a full product specification from various brands within the ASSA ABLOY group, in order to secure the low-carbon, £30million school development on the Isle of Wight.

Allan Thomson, Commercial Manager for ASSA ABLOY, said: “For projects within the education sector, it is essential to strike a balance between safety, security and accessibility. The only way to do this is to offer a wide variety of products, with one to fit almost every application and requirement.

“With the vast variety of projects it has fulfilled in the past, ASSA ABLOY has continued to develop and grow its product offering and knowledge, in order to better service the education sector’s needs.”
