Derbyshire door manufacturer wins £1.5m Louvre Abu Dhabi contract

5 Nov 14 Alfreton-based Gilgen Door Systems has won a £1.5m contract to supply doors and security shutters for the new Louvre Museum under construction in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The contract covers high-security shutters, sectional overhead doors and security grills for the new 24,000m2 building.

Gilgen managing director David Cerquella said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and to be associated with a building of such global multi-cultural importance. With security being a top priority for the museum, it is significant that Gilgen Security Shutters were chosen and further testament to the innovation, strength and quality of our Rolegard high security range."

The Rolegard high security shutters are manufactured in the UK and tested by BRE against anti-jacking, prising, gouging, impact, cutting and drilling. They will be supplied in a variety of sizes up to 7m high by 8.2m wide. Each shutter is electrically operated and interfaced with the building control centre and security system, enabling full control over opening and closing sequences.

The contract was awarded to Gilgen following a successful trial of three full-size Rolegard shutters within a working prototype of the Louvre building.
