My Brighton Hotel

Project Overview
Product: Defender Safeguard

Exterior facade of hotel showing glass doors.

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.

The problem:

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.

The 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 result:

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.

“Another successful project thanks to Metador. From drawing and sign off, to manufacturing and delivery on time, installation was able to go ahead as planned.
