Alpro Architectural Hardware Secures New Library and Community Building in Seaford

Deadlocks and paddle handles from Alpro are securing Warwick House, a new £6m library and multi-user community building in Seaford, East Sussex. The library building, which includes nine supported accommodation residential units, is on three storeys and also offers day services for older people.

Several sets of powered pedestrian sliding doors within the curtain walling at Warwick House are using Alpro’s Europrofile deadlocks. The doors give access to library, community and clinical facilities with much attention been paid to the needs of wheelchair-users.

The Alpro deadlocks (available in both barbolt and hookbolt variants) are specified extensively across the public sector, retail and leisure destinations. The locks can be used in a variety of aluminium door applications including swing mechanisms. 

The hookbolt is made from stainless steel and is a five-ply laminated construction with the centre core case-hardened and a hardened roll pin to resist hacksaw attack. All of Alpro’s deadlocks are designed to accept standard profile cylinders or thumbturns and there is a range of backsets.

Facilities at Warwick House are extensive and the day care centre features medical provision, a canteen and recreation activities. The library has a café and there are meeting rooms for clubs and societies. Local authors frequently address library-users and aspiring writers. 

Over £100,000 was spent on new books alone after construction. The architect is R H Partnership Architects Ltd whose vision has been to create a continuous wall of glass to the library’s ground floor façade.

Single street-facing doors at the perimeter of Warwick House employ Alpro’s 459 paddle handles which are commonly used with deadlatch locks. The handles ideally suit 44mm-thick doors, are cam plug non-handed and reversible in the field. The design is exceptionally ergonomic and makes for easy installation.

Additional security at Warwick House comes from Paxton Access proximity fobs and door readers. The doors featuring Alpro units are compliant with the Equality Act (formerly the Disability Discrimination Act) and form part of a structure by the fabricator Veranti Systems with whom Alpro has also collaborated for Farnborough FIVE, organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow.
