The owner and developer of Canary Wharf, one of London’s most iconic business districts, purchased more than 700 steel door sets from ASSA ABLOY Security Doors for its 23-story office building at 25 Churchill Place.

Customer

Previously derelict docklands, London’s Canary Wharf is now 15 million square feet of prime office, retail and leisure space, thanks to the efforts of property development, investment and management company Canary Wharf Group.

Challenge

The new office building at 25 Churchill Place needed heavy-duty doors that are fire, acoustic and blast-rated, with electrohydraulic door automatics to cope with the heavy traffic expected in the prime London office space. 

Solution

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors designed, manufactured and installed the steel doors for Canary Wharf Group’s office building. In adherence with fire safety requirements, roller-shutter doors were installed to provide additional security after business hours. ASSA ABLOY’s solution included bespoke steel doors with a flush astragal profile on all main access routes. Less vulnerable to attack, the flush astragal profile increases efficiency and safety by restricting the passage of heat and smoke between the various areas of the building.

Designed to withstand abuse from anything ranging from simple hand tools to power tools, ASSA ABLOY Security Doors are tested in accordance with the LPS 1175 loss prevention standard. Fire doors are certified in accordance with BS 476: Part 22: 1987 and BS EN 1634-1: 2000.
