ASSA ABLOY invites spec questions at design event

Pocket doors will be showcased by ASSA ABLOY

ASSA ABLOY is inviting architects, designers and specifiers to challenge them with their specification questions at Clerkenwell Design Week, where the company will be showcasing a wide range of solutions (stand E15; 23rd-25th May).

Visitors to the stand can send ASSA ABLOY their specification challenges in the run-up to the show – whether that be around sustainability, inclusive design, slamming doors or more. ASSA ABLOY’s expert team will then help solve each one.

The ASSA ABLOY stand will include an array of products from across the group, including the Elmes collection of door hardware. Incorporating a variety of materials such as bronze, wood and chrome, the Japanese design-led range has been created to make an impact, and features in prestigious projects around the world.

Wide range of products

Also on show will be the Pocket Door Pro from P C Henderson, a professional pocket door kit that enables doors to slide effortlessly into a cavity wall. Designed with a high-quality, aluminium cavity frame, the system is extremely robust, making it ideal for a wide range of applications including homes, educational buildings, hospitals, hotels and office blocks.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to inspect the AURA® range from Lorient. This is made up of a selection of drop seals, perimeter seals, door bottom seals, threshold plates and ramps that provide outstanding protection for all four sides of a door against sound, smoke, light, draughts, and dust – all while seamlessly integrating into beautiful doorsets and floors through bespoke colour matches.

In addition, ASSA ABLOY will show a selection of door openings and access solutions for homes, businesses and institutions, including doors, door hardware, mechanical and smart locks and access control.

Peter Ashworth, sales director at ASSA ABLOY, comments: “We have great confidence in our design-led products and expertise – and that’s why we’re asking visitors to Clerkenwell Design Week to bring their specification problems to us so that we can help solve them.

“Whether it’s stylish door hardware, intumescent seals or access control systems, we have the products to complement modern building designs and enhance an architect’s vision. We can’t wait to show these off at Clerkenwell Design Week.”

Golden thread

ASSA ABLOY will also be showcasing its project collaboration software Openings Studio™, which streamlines the specification process for doors and ironmongery and helps reduce costs, increase efficiency and enable collaboration throughout the project lifecycle.

Paul Thompson, BIM Manager at ASSA ABLOY, adds: “The Building Safety Act sets out a clear pathway for how buildings should be constructed and maintained, and the drive to reduce cost must not compromise the safety performance of a building.

“Openings Studio™ enables the golden thread of information, putting safety at the heart of every stage of a project, providinggateway points at design, construction, completion and management phases. We welcome visitors to our stand at Clerkenwell Design Week to learn more about unlocking the BIM tools needed for more efficient planning, design and building processes.”
