The safety and security of Griffin Close tenants, a property managed by Origin Housing, has been significantly improved following the installation of Delta Security’s Model 9 Steel Doors.
This installation extends the relationship that Delta Security has with Origin Housing, as the Model 9 Steel Door has proved to be a successful deterrent to anti-social behaviour (ASB) across other properties in its jurisdiction.
Origin Housing is a provider of affordable housing and care and support services in London and Hertfordshire. It owns and manages over 6,000 homes, has a turnover of £45 million and aims to provide great homes and build strong communities in the area.
Delta Security has installed approximately 30 doors, replacing all communal front entrances and internal security doors. They have been installed with a fully isolated, digital door entry and fob system, which allows tenants and caretakers only into the areas of the property that they are permitted.
Aaron John, Director of Echelon Consultancy, the procurement and asset management consultancy advising Origin Housing, says that ASB was a significant problem on the estate: “Griffin Close required a high security door that would deter those wanting to vandalise and enter the property illegally and the Delta Model 9 door met our specification exactly,” he explains. “It has a very robust locking mechanism and despite it being extremely secure, it looks good and suits the profile of the building.
“It was clear that Delta had a clear understanding of how best to mitigate ASB, as well understanding the timescales and practicalities involved in installing doors with minimum disruption to residents.”
Both Aaron and Jacqui Jirapure, Senior Neighbourhood Manager at Origin Housing, were extremely pleased with how the installation went.
“Delta communicated and liaised directly with all tenants to arrange convenient and practical installation times,” Jacqui says. “Feedback from tenants has been very positive, saying no disruption was caused and this is testament to the consistently hard working and dedicated team.”
Aaron adds that the quality of the finished installation was extremely impressive: “It is not just the quality of the product that stands Delta apart, but the workmanship was consistently of a very high standard.”
The increased security on Griffin Close is part of a wider scheme to regenerate Griffin Close.
Dave Mundy, Operations Manager at Delta Security, says that the Delta 9 Door is playing an integral part in that regeneration: “The Delta 9 Door is extremely robust, giving tenants confidence in their security, and giving Origin Housing the confidence to go ahead with redecoration works, knowing the best security is in place to protect their investment.” – See more at: http://housingspecification.com/hs/news-article/2947/delta-security-delta-security-helps-to-protect-tenants#sthash.EqS1b8Mv.dpuf
