Assa Abloy UK Allow Boarding Students Access

ASSA ABLOY UK has worked closely with Lincoln Security to provide one of the top performing schools in the country with effective access control solutions.

The Priory Academy LSST, based in Lincolnshire, provides places for around 240 pupils in each year group and many of the school’s students gain places at Oxbridge colleges, UK Medical Schools and a range of other top universities. The academy also offers boarding facilities at Robert de Cheney House for sixth form students.

A representative from the school contacted Lincoln Security when their existing access control system began malfunctioning, leaving some users unable to operate doors and a small number of students not being able to gain access to their residential bedrooms.

Lincoln Security and UNION designed a locking arrangement that ensures doors unlock without the means of cables, auto lock when shut and allow free exit, as well as providing a mechanical override on a master system. Lincoln Security also ensured that all existing apertures made by the previous hardware were covered using bespoke cover plates, helping the school to maintain an aesthetically pleasing environment for the students.

ASSA ABLOY supplied UNION Codehandle sets, providing effective key-less locking/unlocking for the students’ interior doors, 2c2 DIN nightlatches, half-euro cylinders and euro profile escutcheons.

Emily Greaves at Lincoln Security, said:
“The Priory Academy LSST placed an order that required the installation of 62 sets of hardware to be fully completed within a very short time frame. Having worked with ASSA ABLOY in the past we knew they would be able to provide us with an excellent turn around of stock, enabling us to complete the job within the timescale.”
Martin Undrill, Site Manager at The Priory, said:
“The Academy prides itself on providing secure, first-class accommodation for its boarders, so we were relieved that Lincoln Security and ASSA ABLOY were able to provide the service we needed quickly and efficiently, causing minimum disruption to both our students and staff.”
