ASSA ABLOY Launches Multi-Solution Door Opening

May 5, 2020
New solution aims at protecting against blasts, fire and hurricanes.

ASSA ABLOY launched its latest door-opening solution to secure spaces, increase safety and protect lives from explosions, excessive heat and even hurricanes.

The Multi-Solution Door Opening adds to ASSA ABLOY’s long line of innovative and industry-leading life-safety products, including bullet-, attack- and tornado-resistant door-opening solutions. Influenced by ASSA ABLOY’s tornado-resistance door and hardware, the Multi-Solution Opening is third-party tested to protect against blasts, hurricane winds and fires.

“At ASSA ABLOY, we’re constantly seeking to innovate our existing products to deliver solutions for the unique challenges presented by the world around us,” says Marc Stroot, ASSA ABLOY manager of Specialty & Integrated Solutions. “We are proud to announce that after rigorous testing, this Multi-Solution Door Opening can dramatically increase safety in environments that face exposure to extreme hurricane-level winds, potential blast impact from explosions, excessive heat from a fire or a combination of all three.”

Stroot tells Locksmith Ledger that the Multi-Solution Door Opening is needed in hurricane areas and is suited for use in petrochemical and government markets but also, potentially, in cannabis dispensaries, mental-health institutions and safe rooms. “We expect this to expand very quickly,” he says.

The Multi-Solution Opening includes openings from Curries or Ceco Door, and Corbin Russwin BL6600 Series or SARGENT BL7300 Series multipoint locks, with the SARGENT or Corbin Russwin deadlocking systems factory-installed in the door. This construction makes for a “very user-friendly installation on site,” Stroot says.

With heavy-duty top, bottom and center latches, the multipoint lock provides the flexibility, strength and durability to withstand intense blasts, extreme winds and excessive heat to keep occupants and property protected.

The Curries or Ceco Door openings incorporate new technology to provide a fiberglass and steel-stiffened door core, with 12- or 14-gauge face sheets, depending on the blast category level. Fully welded edge seams and 14-gauge end channels provide superior strength. Similarly, the door frames are manufactured from heavy 12- or 14-gauge steel and have welded construction. The multiple anchoring options are designed to withstand extensive pressure.

The Multi-Solution Door Opening has been third-party tested to meet Department of Defense Minimum Antiterrorism standards for buildings and third-party certified by Underwriters Laboratories to protect against extreme wind events, including Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zones.
