Smooth Sailing for Adventure Parc Hotel Construction Project

Set on the edge of an inland surfing lagoon, the new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, Snowdonia expects to welcome thousands of guests every year. Guest safety and security is of paramount importance to ensure a high-quality experience so the hotel sought door furniture that would meet fire protection and accessibility standards.

MKM Building Supplies worked with Pendle Doors to supply the internal doors. No ironmongery schedule had been agreed, so Pendle Doors turned to HOPPE (UK).  

Ian Hartley, director at Pendle Doors, said: 
“We had a door schedule, but not one for ironmongery so I contacted HOPPE (UK) as I knew I could trust them to draw up a schedule. Ensuring we are supplying compliant door hardware is critical, especially for fire doors, so it’s always good to have an expert on board.”

As a Registered Architectural Ironmonger, Donna Davison, business development manager for HOPPE (UK), knew exactly what was needed for the hotel. Pendle Doors introduced Donna to HB Architects and HH Smith to obtain the specification and establish which products were needed.

Donna explains:
“Even though it is only a small part of the build, architectural ironmongery plays a huge role in the final design, first and foremost, all hardware must meet accessibility and fire safety requirements but we must balance the practicality of the hardware with achieving the clients vision for the overall look and feel of the building.”

Pendle Doors manufactured all internal veneered, paint-grade and laminate faced doorsets for the project; NFR, FD30, FD60 and FD90 including high acoustic rated bedroom entrance doors.

For aesthetic reasons, the hardware needed to match the access control hardware that had already been chosen for the bedroom doors. HOPPE (UK) supplied the remaining fire door hardware for the bedroom entrance doors including AR8182 hinges, AR1500 door closers, both in stainless steel, and intumescent seals.

For the other doors throughout the building, HOPPE (UK)’s grade 316 stainless steel Marseille door handle set on a circular rose was used to coordinate with the bedroom door handles. 
The hotel opened its doors to guests in May 2021
