It’s Time to Upgrade Your Openings

The world is opening back up – employees are going back to the office, students are going back to school, and individuals are traveling again – and demands for healthier, safer and more accessible environments are increasing.

And while those demands are understandable, the complexity added by buildings and their door openings that vary in size, use, and design can be overwhelming.  ASSA ABLOY can help you address these challenges by reducing germ transmission, controlling access, meeting building code requirements, offering good aesthetics and embracing energy efficiency. We can also help navigate product selection and specification, and offer professional services like fire door inspections.
