Assa Abloy Security Solutions Preserving British Canals And Rivers

ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions has supplied products to the Canal & River Trust, which takes care of 2,000 miles of waterways in England and Wales.

The charity is responsible for maintaining canals and rivers that are often over 200 years old, as well as protecting the network of bridges, embankments, towpaths, aqueducts, docks and reservoirs. The British waterway network is an important part of British heritage and provides a vital environmental resource for residents, schools and tourists to interact with history and wildlife.

Lincoln Security specified UNION and ASSA products, to be fitted throughout pump houses, front gates and meeting rooms, to provide controlled access to the facilities across England and Wales, ensuring that the canals and rivers are open and safe for visitors to enjoy.

UNION’s euro-profile StrongBOLTTM lock case was supplied, which is ideal for first or retrofit installation, as its design eliminates the need for tooling to avoid spoiling the aesthetics of doors. UNION has a range of  StrongBOLTTM products including Euro and Oval profile cylinders lock cases that could be suited across the entire installation.

ASSA’s Twin Combi 5800 cylinders were also installed to provide high security and resistance to any known method of picking, the cylinder also allows for master key systems to be integrated for continuity of key management. ASSA’s 3088 deadlock was also supplied and connected to the intruder alarm, to allow the system to be set when the key triggers the switch.

Sean Falkinder, Sales Development Manager at Lincoln Security, said: 
“Some of the Trust’s buildings are listed, so we had to come up with a solution to allow the entrances to be on the new masterkey system, without unnecessary mortising to the precious doors. So, we designed surface fitting housings to accept UNION’s horizontal cases and the ASSA cylinder, so any marks left on the door would be covered.”

Paul Johnson, Commercial Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: 
“Canals and rivers are a national asset of intrinsic value, reflecting Britain’s emergence as the first industrial nation. So it is fitting that UNION, a heritage brand that still manufactures in the UK, has been able to provide a solution to help protect and conserve Britain’s waterways for future generations to enjoy.”
