The global leader in access solutions demonstrates how its latest products open what’s next in personalized design.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, June 6, 2019 — At the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019, ASSA ABLOY will feature new innovations at booth #2208, including cutting-edge design processes and opening solutions for glass doors. Highlighting the company’s commitment to functional aesthetics, customized solutions and sustainable design, these products help design and architecture professionals provide a personalized experience for end users, while bringing the designer’s vision to life.

“At ASSA ABLOY, we’re helping customers turn their design dreams into reality, while keeping elegance, quality and performance top of mind,” said Sandra Matheny, Director of Decorative Openings for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “We’re excited to share our latest products and solutions with design professionals to help them open what’s next in architecture and design.”

Improving Form and Function
At its booth, ASSA ABLOY will display modern finishes and customizable offerings including:

  • Custom Decorative Hardware Program: When off-the-shelf won’t do, ASSA ABLOY Group brands collaborate with designers to develop concepts, create prototypes and manufacture a one-of-a-kind collection. Using the highest quality materials, computer-controlled machining techniques can fabricate exact cuts, casts, or bends for sleek, unique design. This program enables design and architecture professionals to provide clients and end users with aesthetic continuity and personalized solutions.
  • Touch of Color: ASSA ABLOY’s new Touch of Color collection supports design aspirations for unique spaces using a special powder coating. With the ability to match any color using a durable, cost effective finish technique, Touch of Color adds a distinctive touch to levers, door pulls, and hinges to accentuate any space.
  • Hollow Metal Doors and Frames: With custom profiles, moldings and embossing available, ASSA ABLOY’s hollow metal door and frame offering from Ceco Door and Curries support a variety of design approaches while delivering on security and sustainability for any type of building.

 Advancing Innovation in Glass Solutions
The booth will also showcase the latest access control technology for glass openings, including:

  • The Adams Rite G100 wireless digital glass lock with Aperio® technology, which extends access control to all-glass doors without costly infrastructure changes while also maintaining aesthetics. 
  • The Securitron M380E EcoMag® Magnalock, which provides integrated options, nine architectural finish options, increased efficiency over the previous M380 Series, and simplified installation.
  • The Security Latch Adapter SL100 can retrofit panic devices that utilize a roller latch, thereby minimizing unintended movement and providing more engagement with the strike to increase security of glass openings.
