The My Hotels Group operates high-end boutique hotels, with branches in Bloomsbury, Chelsea, and Brighton. The award-winning design of each hotel incorporates a distinct local flavour with sustainability.
My Brighton, the Brighton branch of My Hotels, was opened in 2008 and is a collaborative design between local creatives and esteemed New York-based designer Karim Rashid.
My Brighton required two steel exit doorsets that aesthetically fit with the hotel’s character as well as being strong enough to withstand a high level of usage from members of the public and staff. The doors also needed to provide security to prevent break-ins from the outside, as well as easy maintenance and cleaning due to the location of the doors in catering areas.
The contractor for My Brighton, a valuable client, came to Metador for a suitable solution.
Metador provided two Defender Safeguard double doors, featuring upgraded 316 grade stainless steel hinges and a 1.5mm thick galvanised steel skin with a rockwool core for increased strength and reliability. The doors are designed to withstand regular usage and also to prevent vandalism from the exterior.
With one door fitted to a coffee shop and another in the restaurant within the hotel, hygiene was of utmost importance. Featuring a marine grade powder coat in shade RAL 7046, the doors have a durable finish that is easy to clean and maintain. This allows staff to keep the doors hygienic on a daily basis without compromising its aesthetics.
The Defender Safeguard steel exit doors provided My Brighton with the strength and durability required for a busy environment as well as complimenting the design of the hotel.
