Armourdoor Blast Doors Securing the London Underground

HAG’s recent contract was a joint project between London Underground and EDF Energy to upgrade Transformers and Electrical Transfer Equipment.

The design criteria for the Steel Door package required a blend of ‘blast resistant’ and ‘high-end security’ Steel Door set’s to close off and make secure underground Electrical Transformers and Transfer stations; these were adjacent to London Underground tunnels, therefore the Blast and Security element was a fundamental requirement that the armourguard range suited (Armourdoor60 and Armourdoor40).


Initially, the programme was laid out in 3 specific Phases; in practice, the interaction and coordination between the joint clients and their particular works called for HAG to be flexible not just by Phase, but Door by Door.

Due to the long-standing and close relationship between HAG and BAM, not only was the programme able to be flexible, but was delivered on time over a period of 13 months to its eventual conclusion, which received Zero ‘critical snagging’ at any stage; which is testament to the quality of HAG Steel Door products and it’s commitment to the Steel Door Industry.
