Stylish security for new theater /global/scaled/1280x558x0x233x1000x435/Global-References-Public-Facility-Jiangsu theatre.jpg A wide range of customized products and a team effort by ASSA ABLOY Guoqiang ensured a stylish hardware solution for the Jiangsu Grand Theater. Customer The newly-completed Jiangsu Grand Theater in Nanjing, China, spans over 270,000 square meters and was constructed at a cost of around EUR 250 million. Its intricate design includes an opera house, a theater, a concert hall and a multifunctional hall, which can accommodate up to 8,000 people. Challenge The hardware for the building had to adhere to stringent product configuration requirements: as well as being functional, the solutions had to have excellent visual appeal. It was also necessary to specify different hardware for different locations and applications such as the auditoriums, shops and offices. Solution ASSA ABLOY Guoqiang therefore supplied hardware with customized colors to fit the various applications, as well as spider fittings for glass curtain walls and aluminum alloy hardware for windows and doors. In total, ASSA ABLOY Guoqiang supplied 1,000 window, facade and door hardware sets. Despite the complexity associated with supplying such a large quantity of different solutions combined with a short lead time, Jingfang Li, general manager of ASSA ABLOY Guoqiang, says that the people involved in the project ensured its success. “The R&D, production and sales teams worked closely together to accomplish the project,” Jingfang says.
