The Summer Issue of Door Industry Journal is now available online

After around three weeks in production, the Summer edition of DIJ was finally published online in time for the weekend late on Thursday evening!

As I wrote this introduction in preparation for the launch last week, Boris Johnson had just been announced as our new PM. He spoke of optimism and the ‘spirit of can do’ in his acceptance speech, and we can only hope this translates into some certainty that gets the country back on track.

What is certain is that you’ll find plenty to absorb you in the Summer edition of the DIJ. So grab a cold drink, or an ice cream (or both) and get to grips with all the latest news and views from across the door industry.

It’s a content-packed issue - here’s some highlights:

  • Jo Milne-Rowe - Chair of the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers and National Sales Manager at Codelocks - shares her thoughts on her role and the future of access control (page 20)

  • Find out about YOURDOOR - a new and unique concept in the garage door sales and installation market (page 60)

  • Jewers recently installed a 10-leaf Osprey sliding folding door on a Dubai fire station that services the Gulf’s only dry dock facility (page 92)

  • IN2 Access, exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of BBC Bircher Smart Access products, tries ExpertLine - the Swiss firm’s first ever self-assembly safety edge (page 102)

  • Access and security solutions firm dormakaba, has launched its first revolving direct drive, which boasts ultra-thin design and modular functionality (page 106)

  • Norseal’s Michael Spoors explores the issues to consider when building or specifying acoustic door sets (page 110)

  • Read about the ongoing success of the fire door training courses being offered by the dhf and BRE Academy (page 114)

  • See how architectural ironmongers John Planck Ltd were involved with the transformation of old Scotland Yard - former home of the Met Police - into a five–star hotel (page 123)

  • Take a break, and find out the definition of OLD – as well as a few other funnies! (page 128)

And with that, I’ll leave you to enjoy your summer. I hope you have a good rest and recharge those batteries – you’ll hear from me again in a few months.
