Door Group signals improvement for Network Rail 

Public Sector Mon, Feb 4, 2019 11:00 AM

Door Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland has supplied a number of high security steel doorsets to Network Rail for the upgrade of its remote signal rooms.

The project was commissioned through Kent-based trade customer Taylor Refit, who removed the existing doors and installed new high security steel doorsets certified to LPS 1175 security ratings from the Powershield range.

The upgrade comes as part of Network Rail’s plan to heighten the security level to its signal rooms following the recent vandalism.

Network Rail specified that the high security doors supplied needed to offer maximum protection to the remote rooms, whilst also providing a cost-effective solution. ABLOY Protec cylinders were also incorporated into the specialist locks throughout the sites.

Due to the easy-to-install products, Taylor Refit was able to remove and install the security doors in just one day, resulting in minimal disruption to services.

Chris Cole, Area Sales Manager (SE & London) for Door Group comments: “We are delighted that Network Rail gave us the opportunity to provide superior security doorsets to this project and we hope to build on our relationship in the future.

“We pride ourselves on supplying high quality products and we work closely with our customers to understand their specific requirements and to provide specialist and tailored solutions. We had to ensure that the doorsets we were supplying offered maximum security, as per the customer’s specifications.”

Door Group’s work with Network Rail follows a number of high-profile contracts with Transport for London and Crossrail Limited.

Brian Sofley, Managing Director for Door Group, added: “We pride ourselves on our portfolio of well-respected clients that choose to work with us time and time again. We attribute this to our comprehensive service offering and expert advice throughout each project.”
