Safety & Security Abloy UK Secures Spire Manchester Hospital Security expert Abloy UK has supplied Spire Manchester Hospital with PROTEC2 CLIQ® and Traka 21 advanced key management systems to improve the security of medicines and increase nursing efficiency. Spire Manchester Hospital specified a combination of PROTEC2 CLIQ keys and cylinders which were easily retrofitted to a range of Bristol Maid drug cabinets throughout the hospital, including theatres, out-patients and several wards. Staff CLIQ keys were housed in Traka 21 key cabinets fitted across the wards. Dawn Davies, Matron and Head of Clinical Services at Spire Manchester Hospital, said: “When designing and commissioning a brand new private hospital, we wanted to ensure we had equipment at the forefront of medical technology. The systems from Abloy give us enhanced security measures and management of controlled drug storage and access.” www.abloy.co.uk The Chocolate Quarter, one of the UK’s most stylish retirement complexes, is now protected by industry-leading fire panels from Advanced.

This follows concerns being raised over the practice of mixing components from different manufacturers when erecting towers. As a result WernerCo, which manufactures the marketing-leading brand BoSS, is urging people to be aware of the dangers around building a non-compliant structure. Towers should comply with specific standards. When combining components from different manufacturers, a new structure has been created that has not been tested to EN1004:2004 and, therefore, does not comply.
