    When the Dubai World Trade Centre proposed the development of an entirely new centre for business, it was bound to be a substantial project with high standards throughout. The architects appointed, Hopkins, were tasked with designing over 1 million square metres of indoor and outdoor, space which included retail premises, offices, apartments and luxury hotels.

    The contractors, Carillion Al Futtaim (now Al Futtaim Construction) chose Laidlaw Gulf LLC to supply the architectural hardware to this significant development. Laidlaw Gulf LLC is a market leader in the supply of architectural hardware across the UAE and Middle East. We were delighted to be asked by the Laidlaw Gulf team to supply a Tigris® Premier3 master key system into this exciting new development.

    Tigris® Premier3, our patent-protected design, offers the high security the end users were seeking as well as the capacity to easily manage some 1,400 cylinders within a single, complex master key system – always a requirement in projects of this scale. Laidlaw were already aware of our reputation for delivering a quality product in time and in full at the most critical stage in the project cycle. Although we had no hands-on involvement with the project, our internal systems and Laidlaw’s own expertise ensured a smooth process from start to finish. That’s a result we’re justifiably proud of.

  2. One Project, Two Priorities

    Manor House Hotel

    When a hotelier is undertaking a refurbishment of a property, and every detail of each individual room has been chosen with note-perfect accuracy, the access control and security system cannot be an afterthought. Why would you ruin the work of the design team? Why would you risk compromising the hotel’s operation?

    When we got involved with the project at the Manor House Hotel at Lindley near Huddersfield, it was apparent that the intention was to deliver a genuine high-end experience. Throughout the building – in bedrooms, lounges, bars and restaurants – the choice of fixtures and fittings reflected remarkable standards in both functional and aesthetic terms. It was clear that the hotel’s locking systems had to deliver outstanding security and fit in with an eclectic mix of styles. And, despite the Manor House’s modest size, efficiency was also high on the wish list. The client wanted an easily controllable, adaptable and reliable Electronic Access Control system.

    The chosen solution was from our Elite Lock range. With this system, the sensor and battery housings are understated – ideal where they need to blend into décor schemes. There are options to suit interior and exterior doors and functions designed specially for the hospitality sector. The Elite Lock works with almost any type of lever handle, giving designers the flexibility they need and allowing scope for any future changes.

    This adaptability was a must for the Manor House Hotel. With rooms ranging in style from pure simplicity to rich opulence, we had to provide specially finished sensors and housings. The wall readers and even the lock forends had to be given the bespoke treatment, but that’s one of Elite Lock’s many strengths – it can be tailored to fit in anywhere.
    Another major advantage of these locks is that their operation doesn’t rely on cabling. Using only batteries, proven Mifare RFID and Wireless technology, the locks are easy to install, easy to program and provide the hotel’s management with the control and audit information they need. Should the system need amending or extending at a future date, that’s no problem. And, of course, the security is superb – top-quality mortice locks across the board.

    One project: a very attractive, boutique hotel.
    Two priorities: effective operation and an impeccable finish. As usual, we’ve delivered.
