C O M » » ASSA ABLOY UK Specification, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has specified a range of solutions for a new RAF nursery in Oxfordshire, delivering assured access and safety for children using the facility. Working in partnership with designers Frankham Consultancy Group and contractors Antac, the company specified a series of door opening solutions to the new nursery at RAF Benson. The RAF base required an extension to its existing nursery facilities, increasing its capacity to cater for more than 100 children. As a result, the specification process demanded products that were fully compliant and tailored to the needs of the young children that would be using this facility. Products specified by ASSA ABLOY UK Specification include the DC500A CAM-Motion® door closer, delivering a low opening force while providing sufficient closing forces to satisfy fire legislation, and ASSA modular high-security deadlocks, delivering a strong locking solution for doors.
