ASSA ABLOY UK Specification launches BIM-enabled tools to simplify specification

ASSA ABLOY UK Specification, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, has just announced the launch of 3D, BIM-enabled tools to simplify door and hardware specification for access control.

Openings Studio – a BIM-enabled product specification tool – and BIM Door Solutions, a selection of BIM-ready openings packages, help streamline the specification process, as well as reducing costs throughout the project lifecycle.

Suitable for all building projects and applications, the software provides product information and performance data to comply with budgets and ensure the Building Rgulations are adhered to, while 3D views guarantee full design integration. Not only this, but data is available in multiple formats to ensure easy collaboration with all stakeholders.

Tim Checketts, UK Specification director, said: “Whether customers choose ready-made BIM Door Solutions packages or a tailored solution through Openings Studio, both tools are designed to simplify specification and add value at every stage, from design right through to construction and beyond.”

Checketts added: “BIM is changing the building landscape, bringing with it improvements in design, specification, delivery and asset management. Our tools give our partners more time to focus on what they do best, creating high quality, sustainable buildings both more efficiently and cost-effectively.”

Chubb Systems set to showcase fire and security solutions at Data Centre World

Chubb Systems will be showcasing its smart security management software – along with the company’s extensive range of fire safety and security solutions – at Data Centre World on 15-16 March at ExCeL, London.

Chubb Systems will be demonstrating its powerful fire and security management system – ADACS – which collates data from multiple channels, enabling Data Centre operators to manage fire safety, security, building controls and power supplies from a single platform.

The feature-rich ADACS platform presents real-time information to control access privileges, monitor fire detection and suppression systems and manage CCTV and monitoring systems installed within the Data Centre.

Chubb works with Data Centre operators to tailor solutions to help protect people and assets and assist in safeguarding Data Centre uptime. “We use our expertise and the latest security and fire technology to create secure, reliable and compliant solutions,” said Graeme Heanan, managing director at Chubb Systems. “These solutions provide a first line of defence and early warning of any problems, preventing a small incident from becoming a major issue and limiting downtime to an absolute minimum.”

Visitors to Data Centre World will also be able to view Chubb’s cabinet access management system (CAMS), a safe and secure solution for the management of cabinets and racks. The CAMS allows only authorised personnel access to allocated cabinets and supports compliance with a full auditing capability. Permissions are administered via the Chubb ADACS system, in turn giving direct control over access rights.

Chubb’s comprehensive approach includes the design, installation, maintenance and monitoring of intrusion detection systems; high-performance video surveillance systems linked to a 24/7 CCTV monitoring centre, advanced access control and fire detection systems (gas fire suppression systems and high-pressure water mist).
