Lock, stock and barrel – Ingersoll Rand


In every project it's the hardware that spells the difference between a high-quality job or a quick fix. For the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences project at the University of Auckland, premium, hardwearing products that would go the distance were essential.

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies was consequently engaged to advise on and supply all the door controls and mechanical locking systems. Casey Cox, commercial sales manager, says it is a technical niche market where architects and designers often rely on the expertise and experience of the consultants at Ingersoll Rand to ensure the specification is fit for purpose and accurate.

"Because this was also a very large project, with many different types of doors and applications, we needed to put together a comprehensive schedule that would meet the client's list of requirements, which included compliance, durability and aesthetics. This involved working closely with the architects, contractors and project team, with ongoing support provided to the client's maintenance department."

Cox says every product sold by the company has undergone extensive testing to ensure it is robust and will be long lasting, with the aim of reducing maintenance costs. Key products supplied by Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies include New Zealand-designed, engineered and assembled Legge locks and furniture, LCN door closers, and the renowned Schlage door hardware.
