When Amdocs, a leading global software company, began building a new campus in Ra’anana, Israel, they needed a door closer solution tailored to every door of their large site encompassing four office buildings and three underground floors, and taking into account their different sizes, types and usage. Finding a single supplier to meet all these needs was a challenge – but they succeeded with Assa Abloy.

For such a complex project, they also sought trustworthy specification support from an established, experienced manufacturer with a proven track record and a team with local knowledge.

“Assa Abloy has many access solutions related to openings in the building, including door closers. I am pleased that our project specification team was able to provide the right solutions for our customer’s requirements,” says Avi Kimhazi, Managing Director at Assa Abloy Israel. This included full support for choosing, supplying and installing solutions for doors across the campus. Assa Abloy’s expertise and advice was always available.

Product portfolio to meet the individual needs of every opening

The vast range of available Assa Abloy Door Closers, Electric Strikes, Locks, Panic Exit Devices and other products ensured every opening at Amdocs Park campus was equipped with its ideal solution, without compromises. Certifications – including fire compliance across the full range – help to remove regulatory worries for specifiers and facilities managers.

Models supplied include Assa Abloy Cam-Motion Door Closers for several applications: With innovative Cam-Motion technology, the push-force required to open a door falls rapidly, providing barrier-free access for all plus secure closing to keep premises safe.

Assa Abloy’s Cam-Motion DC700 model offers comfortable, secure access to high-traffic public doors in the building. The DC840 model conceals the same technology within the door leaf itself, and so is deployed where minimal aesthetic impact was a requirement. And for smaller door sizes, choosing the cost-efficient DC200 rack and pinion door closer helped the project hit its budget targets.

Hitting project deadlines

The project was managed using BIM principles from the outset. As part of the BIM process, Assa Abloy’s local specification team became a hub for coordinating and disseminating up-to-date information for every door solution.

Alongside providing timely specifications, the team made sure supply and installation hit timelines which construction managers required. Detailed specifications were supplied and updated digitally, so designers could visualise door solutions accurately and the right solution was specified for each opening.

Openings Studio software was a key tool for everyone involved in the project. This user-friendly software ensures accurate specification data is logged and, when approved, transmitted to the live Revit design. With detailed specifications supplied and updated digitally, designers visualise door solutions accurately as soon as possible – and ensure the right solution is specified for each opening.

And because every stakeholder can have appropriate Openings Studio access, they work transparently and with accurate, up-to-date specifications.
