ASSA ABLOY provided innovated solutions for the roughly 6,000 door openings in the new University Medical Center (UMC) in New Orleans.

Challenge

Security is always the most critical component for any medical facility, but UMC also wanted to ensure that its solutions were aesthetically pleasing to fit with its image as a high-tech, modern center at the forefront of innovation in training and patient care. Additionally, the medical center’s location in downtown New Orleans presented a major hurdle for product delivery during construction.

Solution

One solution that was especially appealing because of its premiere access control capabilities and aesthetics was the Harmony Integrated Wiegand Lock (IWP). ASSA ABLOY provided 500 of these locksets to the medical center. The Harmony access control lock includes the reader within the lock escutcheon thus integrating the reader and lock together for a more aesthetic look.
