ASSA ABLOY has launched a new door and hardware solution, which is designed to be blast and hurricane resistant.
Influenced by ASSA ABLOY’s existing tornado-resistance door and hardware, it includes openings from Curries or Ceco Door and Corbin Russwin BL6600 Series or SARGENT BL7300 Series multi-point locks, with the new SARGENT and Corbin Russwin’s multi-point deadlocking systems factory installed in the door. With heavy duty top, bottom and center latches, the multi-point lock can withstand intense blasts, extreme winds and excessive heat to keep occupants and property protected.
The CURRIES or Ceco Door opening incorporates new technology to offer a fiberglass and steel-stiffened door core, with 12- or 14-gauge face sheets, depending on the blast category level. It has fully welded edge seams and 14-gauge end channels. Similarly, the door frames are manufactured from heavy 12- or 14-gauge steel with welded construction. The multiple anchoring options are designed to withstand extensive pressure.
Third-party tests met the Department of Defense Minimum Antiterrorism standards for buildings and third-party certified by Underwriters Laboratories to protect against extreme wind events including the Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zones.
These door systems are available through ASSA ABLOY Group brands Ceco Door and CURRIES and the integrated hardware is from Sargent and Corbin Russwin. Each can be tailored to meet a specific environment’s demands.
