Opportunity knocks for ASSA ABLOY UK at Loughborough University

Loughborough University required a door closer solution that was suitable for all its learning and residential environments, from lecture theatres and seminar rooms to student accommodation and recreational facilities.

After evaluating the options available, the university chose the DC500A CAM-Motion® door closer from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions. Featuring CAM-Motion® technology to ensure the door is light to open while retaining its closing power, the DC500 is offered with a standard or height-adjustable guide rail, and can be installed in hinge or non-hinge sides, in either standard or frame applications. The door closer is ideal for single action doors up to 1100mm wide, and suitable for fire and smoke protection doors.

Phil Sheppard, Senior Clerk of Works at Loughborough University, explains: “We specify the DC500 door closers from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions based on two critical factors. Firstly, the quality of the door closer cannot be questioned. It is a proven technology with extensive experience in the market.

“Secondly, should an issue arise, ASSA ABLOY takes the time to put it right – with any other manufacturer, I am not sure that would be the case. ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions are quick to respond to any repairs or modifications that need undertaking, ensuring we are completely satisfied with the service we receive.

“It is this commitment to quality and level of service that has compelled us to install the DC500 throughout our site, including teaching and research environments, halls of residence, retail buildings and sports facilities.”
