Allgood Supply both Doorsets and Ironmongery in Glasgow

Allgood Doors

Project Management and Design at Glasgow City Council has utilised Allgood ironmongery and doorsets to ensure durable, clean design products were used within a residential building designed for Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Health and Social Care Local Partnership.

Allgood ironmongery had previously been installed in similar facilities and the client provided valuable feedback on suitability both in terms of durability and design.

Assisting the project, experienced Allgood Sales Representative, Steve Clayton provided technical advice and guidance on the ironmongery products most suited to the project brief, and highlighted the additional capability of Allgood to supply internal doorsets.

The project contractor City Building (Glasgow) LLP appointed Allgood for both elements without substitution.

Ensuring one point of contact for the complete ironmongery and door package enabled any queries to be answered swiftly and the delivery of doorsets and ironmongery to be successfully co-ordinated and delivered on time. Furthermore, by co-ordinating purchases, door compatibility for the desired ironmongery was achieved.

Providing the doorsets for various applications including studio flat entrances, ensuites, corridor doors and office doors, more than 100 oak veneered internal doorsets were supplied.

For each application, doors of specific sizes and properties were provided, such as a fire resistant office door offering 30 minutes of fire resistance, stair lobby door providing up to 60 minutes of fire resistance as well as corridor doors with vision panel features.

Allgood Alite Ironmongery

Incorporated within the doorsets was Allgood Alite ironmongery. A robust range, Alite was developed with local government projects in mind to provide a durable commercial product at a cost effective price. As such, Alite lever handles, WC signs, fire door signs along with door signage and spyholes were installed throughout the communal residence.

Steve Clayton, Sales Representative at Allgood said:
“By utilising both Allgood ironmongery and doorsets, not only was the procurement and delivery process streamlined but installation time onsite was also reduced, as all of the doorsets were supplied hung in their frames. In addition, all morticing for both doors and ironmongery was completed in the factory, prior to delivery, to further reduce fitting time and limit any onsite disruption.’’
“An added benefit for this project in particular, which aided the successful, timely delivery of all components, was the close proximity of the Allgood factory. This meant that we could work extremely closely with the site contractors to ensure deliveries were made in the number of phases required.”

For self-closing doors within the building, Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Health and Social Care Local Partnership opted for fully concealed door closers. Incorporated within the door and frame, the closing mechanism is fully concealed and invisible to visitors to the building.
