GS Tower, Korea


Working closely with the customer, we provided a complete door opening solution for GS Tower in Seoul with a range of locks from across our product portfolio.

CUSTOMER: GS Tower, in Seoul, Korea, was completed in 1999 and its design conducted by US architect, SOM. This 38-story building has various facilities including an exhibition hall, offices and a theatre. The customer needed to upgrade its building to be more up-to-date and reduce the need for maintenance.

CHALLENGE: As a first phase to improve the 20-year-old facilities, the customer needed to upgrade the access control system. This consisted of components from different suppliers, so whenever an issue occurred, they needed to contact individual suppliers to figure out root causes, and the system always had potential maintenance risks. In this regard, the customer preferred a leading total solution provider to provide a more secure and convenient system.

SOLUTION: We began with in-depth meetings with the customer to identify their issues and requirements. Then we proposed the most appropriate solution by offering Corbin Russwin electric mortise locks, Securitron shear locks, and Trimec electric strike, dead bolt, electromagnetic locks for smooth operation in access control. Installation began in late 2019 and the solution will provide security, convenience and safety to users as well as an easy maintenance service to facility mangers.
