ASSA ABLOY Group Brands Ceco Door and Curries Launch Blast Resistant Door Openings

New products expand range of aesthetics and capabilities for high security openings

NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 11, 2015 -- ASSA ABLOY Group brands Ceco Door and Curries now offer more opening solutions that meet or exceed strict United States government, military, and embassy safety and security requirements for blast resistance. Ceco Door and Curries blast resistant openings provide extra protection against explosions and excessive force with various options.


"These blast resistant openings provide better protection for occupants of government and military facilities, embassies, refineries, chemical storage plants, and other properties vulnerable to destructive incidents caused by nature or man," said Howard Schrier, Director of Hollow Metal Specialty Products, ASSA ABLOY Door Group. "Ceco Door and Curries designed the doors and frames to meet or exceed stringent manufacturing and performance requirements of the Department of Defense, Department of State, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, and other regulatory groups."

The Steel Door Institute (SDI) explains the specialized function of these openings as such: Blast resistant doors protect people and property from explosions and shrapnel. A properly specified and engineered door can save lives by preventing the devastating shrapnel caused by a blast from entering an area. Ceco Door and Curries blast resistant openings meet or exceed the following testing standards:

* American Society for Testing and Materials - ASTM F1642 & ASTM F2927
* Unified Facilities Criteria - UFC 4-010-01 9 Feb 2012
* U.S. General Services Administration - GSA TS-01 Level C&D

Attendees and media representatives are invited to ISC West, ASSA ABLOY Group booth #8061, where a new blast resistant opening will be amongst the many high security, aesthetically-pleasing technologies on display.
