Client: Catalyst Housing
Year Completed: 2010-2016
Catalyst Housing which is in Wembley, manage thousand of social housing across London for a wide range of tenants from refugees to people down on their luck.
Their accommodation had wooden doors which were inadequate and easily broken into, maintenance on them was difficult due to travel and parking being in London so they wanted to cut down on this.
We were tasked with designing and installing a new door system which required little to no maintenance after it was fitted and was fully secure and required to meet DDA standards.
Our biggest challenge was to combat the need to maintain and upkeep the doors. All doors will require maintenance at some point however reducing the time between visits was key.
We solved this problem by installing self lubricating hinges, magnetic locks and concealed hydraulic overhead door closing systems.
