The SMARTair wireless access control system is one of a range of ASSA ABLOY products installed at the state-of-the-art Lion Health Centre in the UK.


The Lion Health Centre in Stourbridge near Birmingham, which opened in April 2014 after having been converted from a former foundry, provides medical services for up to 26,000 patients.


A variety of security products were required for the new ultra-modern complex, which includes an enhanced nursing suite, a minor operations theater, a physio gym and rehabilitation area, a small lecture theater and a pharmacy.


To help decide on the best security solutions for the center, ASSA ABLOY UK collaborated with developer Abacus Architects. The solutions selected included the SMARTair wireless access control system to allow sophisticated proximity access control using attractive wire-free door units to help manage people’s movement around the center. The choice of the SMARTair wireless access control system meant there was no need to install complicated software, which made for an efficient installation process.

Fitted P600 masterkey cylinders tailor the security between the different areas within the facility, while ASSA ABLOY Cam Motion DC500 door closers enable the center’s doors to be easily opened by the elderly or those with a disability.
