Double Doors Will More Than Do

24 April 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

A specialist, double door, suitable for use in high security plant and engine rooms, has been supplied by Adams Rite.

The installation was achieved with the cooperation of IKON, an aluminium systems company.

Using the Adams Rite Sentinel 6 deadlock that complies with BS EN 12209, at security grade 6 and the 7201S flushbolt, the IKDS50 louvre doorsets were fully tested to PAS24. The rigorous testing process demonstrated the IKDS50 doorset offers ‘enhanced security’ required for the protection of expensive electrical equipment in unmanned facilities.

The doorsets successfully resisted all PAS24 attacks, having undergone timed manual attack methods, hard and soft body impact tests and mechanical load testing of 4500N at each locking point without component failure or opening.

“We’ve manufactured this doorset as a number of our customers have expressed a need for a heavy duty doorset, suitable for securing plant and engine rooms,” explained Mike Lock, IKON. “If security is breached and machinery is damaged, businesses not only endure the cost of replacing equipment, but also lose income from operations being interrupted due to the time it takes to replace devices. The IKDS50 is proven to provide the high level of security needed to protect expensive pumping and heating equipment.”

Adams Rite is part of Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY.
