ASSA ABLOY Door Group unveils high performance steel door ranges

Door Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, has launched two high performance steel doorsets within its Powershield Security Doorsets range. The new SR3 and SR4 steel door ranges, also known as Torr and Titan, have been developed to offer a product compatible with increased frame and ironmongery options, allowing greater freedom of design for architects and specifiers.

The doors are suitable for an extensive range of sectors, including banks, power stations, hospitals, safe rooms, MoD buildings, personal security, arenas and stadiums.

After listening to end user customers’ requirements, the Torr and Titan ranges were redeveloped by the Door Group to replace the Glen and Strangford security doors and are certified under LPS1175 Issue 7 to withstand sustained, professional burglar and vandal attacks.

The launch ensures specifiers, architects and contractors can source a complete doorset solution for their end users from one trusted single point of contact. Compatible with a wide range of Kaye-certified locking systems, and available in single and double configurations, the two door ranges can also be supplied with or without LPS-rated and certified vision panels and in a range of frame styles.

With a leaf and frame weight reduction of up to 40% from previous ranges, the Torr and Titan ranges are easier to install and handle and are appreciably lighter to use, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of projects.

The ranges prioritise both the performance and the aesthetic of the doorsets, completely removing industrial looking features from the outside of the door leaf and reducing the leaf skin thickness to tighten the folds and create a softer aesthetic. The new doorsets now look almost identical to standard commercial doorsets.

Brian Sofley, managing director at the ASSA ABLOY Door Group, explained: “We’re always looking for ways in which to develop ourselves and our trade, ensuring that we deliver the highest quality products and services on the market. The new Torr and Titan ranges really embody this ethos. We’re confident the new ranges will exceed the needs of our customers and specifiers, providing a durable solution which achieves the performance demands required.”
