New Beijing landmark secured by ASSA ABLOY /global/scaled/2425x1055x1x620x1000x435/Global-References-Office-and-Corporate-POSCO.jpg ASSA ABLOY Tianming fitted steel interior doors and folding-and-lifting shutters for the new Beijing POSCO Center in China that reflect the building’s multi-functional status. Customer Funded by leading steel-making company POSCO, the Beijing POSCO Center is designed to be an iconic commercial structure in a new business district in Beijing. It consists of two towers of 31 and 26 floors and houses offices, meeting facilities, shops and restaurants. Challenge As a landmark commercial building, the Beijing POSCO Center has high standards in terms of functionality and aesthetics. All fire doors and interior doors should fit the usage of designated areas, while being soundproof, airtight and pleasing to the eye. In addition, the sizes of glass partitions need to be tailored to different office areas, and should have appearances to match the environment. All the doors and partitions should reflect the POSCO building’s status as a modern multi-functional business center. Solution ASSA ABLOY Fire Doors in China formed a special project team with members from R&D, sales and specification departments to look into the needs of the customer. The team improved the soundproof and heat-resistance performance of existing fire doors, and used environmentally-sound raw materials and green manufacturing processes. To determine the most suitable sizes and locations of glass partitions, ASSA ABLOY conducted site visits and took measurements to make sure they fit different office areas. Steel interior doors were specified for high quality and durability. Folding-and-lifting shutters were specified for shops and other commercial premises.
