Security doors help protect new conference centre

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors has recently supplied doorsets to a brand new conference centre. The Vox Conference Centre recently opened at Resorts World, a leisure and entertainment centre based eight miles east of central Birmingham. The Vox Conference Centre is comprised of five suites and three spacious boardrooms to accommodate events of different types.

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors worked closely with Overbury, part of the Morgan Sindall Group, to specify doors that would contribute significantly towards hygiene for canteen areas, while satisfying fire and acoustic requirements.  

A range of Powershield doorsets were supplied, including Steel Personnel Doors to offer strength and durability. Powershield Fire Doors and Acoustic Doors were also installed into plaster stud walls; the doors were tested and Certifire approved for this wall condition. The doorsets were supplied with a polyester powder coated finish to improve durability and factory fitted with ASSA ABLOY hardware.

The Vox involved many elements and suppliers, there could be anything up to 600 people a day working on site at any one moment. It was crucial that all aspects of the development were delivered on time to enable its continuation and successful conclusion. ASSA ABLOY Security Doors delivered and installed all doorsets to plan.

Alastair Bridgman, Senior Project Manager at Overbury, fit out and office refurbishment specialists, said: “ASSA ABLOY Security Doors’ were able to meet all of our criteria, including our critical hygiene requirements for the kitchen area. ASSA ABLOY Security Doors offered the best economical solution, while also being the highest quality solution.

“ASSA ABLOY Security Doors were also able to provide us with invaluable advice regarding security and fire safety throughout the project, thanks to their many years of expertise.”

Andrew Fisher, Area Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “Every specification had to be made with fire safety and building efficiency in in mind, for what is an extremely high traffic, cutting-edge conference space.

“All of our doors are aesthetically pleasing and offer a professional finish that exudes a high-end feel, in keeping with the Vox Conference Centre’s state-of-the-art facilities. Our Acoustic Doors are designed to resist sound up to 45 decibels, helping to control noise levels for events at the centre.”
