New security locks for Headingley Stadium

by Andy Clutton

Mul-T-Lock’s MTL500 patented cylinder system has been installed by MB Locks across hospitality and stands at Headingley Stadium, as part of the club’s investment programme to achieve test match and Super League dual criteria.

Headingley Stadium is a double-faced sports stadium that works for both Yorkshire County Cricket Club and the rugby league club Leeds Rhinos. The concept of the jointly owned stand is undergoing a £50 million investment programme over a twenty-year period, involving architects and designers coordinating with different needs and security aspects.

Mul-T-Lock worked with EM-B, part of the MB Group, from the initial design process, working in partnership as technical design consultants for door hardware, and checking compliance across the premises, with a focus on hospitality and stand security, to bring the project together.

To date, over 250 MTL500 cylinders have been installed on a master key suite, providing protection and flexibility to accommodate the different access control requirements across the stadium complex.

Rob Oates, Commercial Director at Headingley Stadium says: “We have, and continue to invest, a significant amount to ensure Headingley Stadium meets the strict criteria for both test cricket and Super League rugby.  We need to ensure every level of detail is commissioned to be as secure as possible both now and in the future, without compromising on aesthetics and finishing styles.”

“MB-Locks, together with Mul-T-Lock, demonstrated the advantages of MTL500, and I was especially impressed with the flexibility of the master key system and its ability to incorporate all of our key access requirements. MTL500 master key suite is now installed in the stadium’s hospitality areas and stands, with minimum disruption to the dual ground operations.”
