ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, has provided professionals working on a host of healthcare and education projects with a Design Manual to manage security and door hardware maintenance.
The Design Manual is a document that provides facilities managers and security professionals with an inventory of hardware on doors throughout buildings.
Offering a door-by-door breakdown of products ensures that specifiers, contractors and facilities managers alike are all easily able to gain access to product information to ensure that all hardware is uniform and meets the latest legislation and standards.
Loughborough University, the University of Edinburgh and BMI Healthcare are just some of the organisations currently benefiting from the ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions Design Manual.
One of the biggest benefits of an ASSA ABLOY Design Manual is the enhanced performance guarantee that’s awarded to every project for purchasing the complete ASSA ABLOY solution. This provides the end user customer with complete peace of mind on the reliability and longevity of ASSA ABLOY products.
Paul Johnson, commercial manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “We work extensively with end user management teams to develop Design Manuals that ensure security systems, access control and door hardware are consistent across whole organisations, whether it be university campuses, hospitals or commercial buildings.”
Johnson continued: “Having a Design Manual ensures that end users receive the quality solutions they require, rather than cost-saving products that may sometimes be installed during design and build projects, but may not be of a high enough standard for continual application.”
Phil Sheppard from Loughborough University commented: “ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions reviewed the buildings around our campus to gain an understanding of our existing security systems. This enabled them to tailor security solutions that would provide better whole life costing for the university through providing quality products that reduce our maintenance, repair and replacement expenditures.”
