Making a splash with a complete package of co-ordinated solutions

Lloyd Worrall’s technical know-how has resulted in a range of integrated solutions being supplied and installed to the redevelopment of East Riding Leisure Centre.


Proudly located on the seafront, the redevelopment of East Riding Leisure Centre – now known as Hornsea Hub – included a complete refurbishment and 2-storey extension of the original centre which includes a new extended café area, new changing rooms and an extensively refurbished pool area. The redevelopment also sees a range of local services, including the towns library and children’s centre relocating to the new facility.

Lloyd Worrall understands that in planning for the overall design of sporting and leisure venues, particular attention must be paid to visitor safety and security. Combine this with the use of facilities by potentially vast numbers of the public, the architectural solutions must be robust, withstand the severe frequency of usage and perform for the life of the building.

Lloyd Worrall worked closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Architects during the specification process to ensure that the doorset, ironmongery and access solutions integrated with the centre’s design, were suitable for each application and that the products met building regulations and building standards.

Doors within leisure centres need to withstand heavy usage while being strong and durable. Our Interspec range of high pressure laminate-faced doorsets were supplied to provide increased durability and limit the amount of remedial work. We also specified and supplied NFR and FD30 glazed screens as part of the doorset package.

Integrated stainless steel ironmongery was specified to fully comply with our door certification parameters, ensuring that the 30-minute fire resistance and up to 35dB acoustic performances were maintained. Satin stainless steel handles, door furniture, locks and door closers, are all sufficiently robust for heavy traffic areas. In addition, anthracite grey nylon door furniture with a steel core was supplied to the swimming pool area.

Our access control and door automation team delivered an online access control system which provided remote access control and management, as well as helping to prevent thefts and keeping the public safe in areas where there is high traffic throughput. The system comprised handles which are all online from wireless nodes which allows the site to remotely lock/unlock doors with real-time event management.

The door automation package delivered security to the building’s zoned areas and assisted The Hub with meeting its requirements set out in The Equality Act 2010 and guidelines within BS 8300:2009. To make the specification process straightforward, Lloyd Worrall provided a comprehensive technical support package, which included the supply, installation and commission in accordance with BS EN 16005.
