Education showcase

ASSA ABLOY UK is exhibiting at this year’s Education Facilities Forum. The door opening product company is showing two of its business units.

At the Heythrop Park Resort, Oxfordshire, on November 17 and 18, 2014, the two business units – ASSA ABLOY, Security Solutions and ASSA ABLOY, Access Control – will display ranges for the education market.

Among the products will be ASSA‘s SMARTair and CLIQ remote door opening products. The makers say that the systems provide door management without the associated complexity. CLIQ it’s claimed also minimises administrative work, by allowing an administrator to grant access or to block lost or stolen keys remotely.

The one-handed operation of Codehandle will also provide a demonstration of UNION’s ability to combine convenience with access control.

ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio product will also be presented – including battery powered online and offline locks, cylinders and escutcheons – all designed to upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them online or offline to new or existing access systems, with the makers say minimal modification to doors and premises.

Tina Hughan, Marketing Director for ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “We have considerable experience in supplying educational facilities, from primary schools to universities and are looking forward to sharing our involved knowledge of the sector at this year’s Education Facilities Forum. We understand that products need to have the right balance between being robust to withstand the rigours of educational establishments, meeting legislative requirements and being visually appealing, to create comfortable, friendly teaching and living environments for students and staff. It is with this in mind that we create our tailored product ranges.”

Damian Marsh, Managing Director of ASSA ABLOY Access Control, added: “Aperio has proven to be a cost effective and energy efficient access control solution across a number of education projects. Our latest white paper findings revealed that Aperio is proven to save at least £9,800 in running and maintenance costs of a typical 1000 unit student accommodation block, in comparison to wired access control doors. Facilities managers and bursars will have the opportunity to discover more of Aperio’s benefits at the show.”
