ASSA ABLOY offered a complete suite of products for Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, TX, to meet the customer’s requirements on design aesthetics, durability, sterility, and security.

Challenge

The customer wanted the new 17-floor facility’s doors and opening solutions to provide a modern, upscale feel. They also required solutions that would serve the unique requirements of the hospital environment: easy-cleaning doors that contribute to the sterile environment; key systems with long patent lives to eliminate duplication of keys; and secure areas for infants. The project parameters were immense – 9,000 openings, including up to 600 exit device openings and 1,200 card readers.

Solution

ASSA ABLOY collaborated with two architectural firms, HDR and Corgan, and distributor partner Performance Door & Hardware. Because of the internal collaboration, they were able to ensure that the doors (automatic, hollow, metal and thermal fused), hardware and other solutions worked together. By having a single point of contact working through all the manufacturers, it was easy to solve issues and offer one voice. Working across divisions, ASSA ABLOY was able to offer a complete suite of products that met Parkland’s requirements for design aesthetics, durability, sterility and security.
