Canary Wharf is planned on a grand scale, yet with meticulous attention to detail. The estate extends to over 86 acres, with approximately 6 million net square feet of office and retail space, with a further 8.1 million square feet under construction. About 42,000 people work there in fifteen office buildings, a retail centre, conference and banqueting centre, a Docklands Light Railway station, a London Underground station, landscaped grounds and five car parks.

AccentHansen has been involved in designing, manufacturing, supplying and installing large quantities of steel doors to five major buildings.

The office buildings generally house a combination of AccentHansen’s FireShieldTM, MultiShieldTM and SoundShieldTM hinged doorsets. AccentHansen are also supplying fire resisting rolling shutters, providing a fire protection solution package to the architect’s specific requirements.

AccentHansen FireShieldTM steel doorsets will provide escape route protection and compartmentation: options include single, double and swing doorsets available with vast glazing and an array of high performance hardware options. MultiShieldTM steel doorsets are designed to offer both security and fire protection access and egress. The package also included some specially designed stone clad doors (see picture of partly completed stone door).
