Who are Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council
Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council is the local authority responsible for providing the majority of public services in the Dudley area.
The provision of Social Housing is a major part of this responsibility and a series of Assessment Panels have been formed to review the needs and prioritise the schedule for refurbishment.
Warrior Doors were commissioned to manufacture and install DDA Compliant secure communal entrances, with high visibility and high security in a phased replacement and upgrade programme across a range of varying ‘risk’ areas.
The choice of entrance was dependent on the needs and level of risk for each location.
A range of brushed stainless steel and powder coated stainless steel entrances were installed in some of the higher risk locations, with powder coated aluminium high security doors and screens installed in areas where the potential for vandalism and anti-social behaviour was lower.
The Dudley MBC and their residents are delighted with the results.
As shown in the image above, the new doors and screens have not only improved the visual attractiveness of the entrances and physical security of the buildings, but by designing-in a large area of glazing they have increased natural light (reducing the risk of vandalism) and improved visibility making the tenants feel safer.
