High Flying Hearts select Securefast Panic Hardware for new the Main Stand

Scottish Professional Football League club Heart of Midlothian have recently redeveloped the main stand at their Tynecastle Park stadium, situated in the Gorgie area of Edinburgh. 

At a cost of £12M, the new stand officially opened last year, in time for the start of the new season.

With a view to the safety and security of their consistently high volume of visitors, together with clubs own ground staff, the architects specified the Securefast 900 Series Traditional Style Panic Hardware range throughout the stands corridors and concourse, ensuring safe egress to and from the new offices, hospitality lounges, director’s suite and the roof terrace.

The Securefast panic hardware was supplied by (SIIS) Specialist Ironmongery & Industrial Suppliers UK based in Dundee, with the 900 series being specifically selected due to the range being fully tested and fire rated for use on timber doors.

Certified to BS EN1125, the robust 900 series is designed to meet the demands of the clubs expected high volume attendance of over 20,000 visitors. The specification called for panic bolts and latches fitted to all double rebated doors, incorporated with an outside access device for easy access into these areas. 

To compliment the corridor doors other doors were fitted with traditional push pads, certified BS EN179, in order to provide access to areas that are not open to the general public.
