BLOC HOTEL

GATWICK AIRPORT, UNITED KINGDOM

Business hotel

The Bloc Hotel is based on some fresh thinking. They use clever new design and construction techniques to build hotels with small, chic, perfectly-formed rooms for people who appreciate quality but don’t always need the fuss of a traditional luxury hotel. And without the unnecessary extras, they can keep prices low. It really is that simple.

The world's best innovators helped them push the boundaries of hotel design. Guests enjoy chic rooms and prime, locations at unbeatable prices.

To ensure the hotel's guests are secure during their stay with us and to complement the design-led ethos of the hotel brand, we wanted a stylish, high performance locking system that not only looked good, but also offered us the latest technology and was capable of growing with us in the future.

What did they need?

Finding a room lock that could work with the technologies already implemented was a prime concern. Many manufacturer's offerings were simply not up to the job. This led them to SALTO, world leaders in wire free and wireless access control technology, having an established reputation as manufacturers of advanced security solutions for the hotel and hospitality industry. After explaining their needs and their objectives, they were recommended the AElement electronic locks as a solution.
