ASSA ABLOY supplies exit devices for University in Plymouth, UK

The University of St Mark & St John is based in the coastal city of Plymouth, and is located on a single campus offering bars, restaurants, shops and state-of-the-art sports facilities. The campus has seen an investment of over USD $33.58 million (£20million) over the last few years.

Working with Plym Valley Manufacturing, Adams Rite supplied exit devices for the halls of residences, which cater for almost 500 students. Doorcare South West Limited installed the doors with 960 Series Concealed Vertical Rod exit devices, providing vital panic hardware for the building's escape routes, CE Marked to BS EN1125. Suitable for aluminium doors, the concealed panic exit hardware uses a rotating top bolt and post type header strike, securing doors from the outside whilst ensuring a safe and swift exit for undergraduates in the event of an emergency.

Mike Pengilley, owner of Plym Valley Manufacturing, said: “I have worked with Adams Rite for many years – as a trusted brand, we know we will always get the excellent technical support that we are used to with ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, and we are always safe in the knowledge that Adams Rite have the know-how to assist us in meeting the rigorous legislative requirements in a university building.”

Richard Lawes, Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, added: “Having suitable escape routes is a critical part of ensuring that a building meets with fire safety legislation under the Building Regulations, and the right hardware can be the key to creating an effective escape route in the case of an emergency.

“Adams Rite has extensive experience in the education sector, including some very high-profile and challenging projects. Our continual involvement ensures that we are well placed to advise on the relevant standards and legislation, as well as to continually develop our products in line with the industry demand.”
