Phoenix, AZ, March 19, 2014 – Two ASSA ABLOY products have been named finalists for Architizer A+ Awards, the Securitron M380 and the Adams Rite RITE Door. The Securitron M380 also received a 2013 GOOD DESIGN Award from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
“We are incredibly proud that our Securitron M380 has been recognized with an Architizer A+ Award nomination and a 2013 GOOD DESIGN Award,” said Wendy Bowman, marketing communications director, EMS & OEM Group, ASSA ABLOY. “The M380 is a classic example of design and function going together hand in hand – simple and understated, and styled to blend with any architecture and décor.”
With its 600 lb. holding force, the Securitron M380 is ideal for traffic control in interior access control applications where fail-safe locking operation and free egress are required. It is available in a choice of satin aluminum, brown, black, brass and bronze as well as polished brass, to fit any architectural vision. By combining common door security components such as REX and camera into a single package, the M380 eliminates the clutter of multiple access control devices around a door. It offers the fastest, most secure installation of any bracket-mount magnetic lock.
“Being nominated among thousands of other entries by Architizer, the world's largest and fastest growing website for architecture, is truly an honor,” continued Bowman. “The RITE Door is top of the line in the healthcare category and our plan is to continue to grow the line across the entire architectural design space.”
The RITE Door is a highly customizable integrated door system that offers beautifully styled doors and hardware in a variety of finishes and designs. This collection enables inspired design professionals to incorporate their aesthetic vision into every opening, allowing a consistent appearance regardless of the door’s function.
The Architizer A+ Awards are a definitive architectural award program with 60 categories and over 300 jurors.
