Police & Justice Center in Zurich equipped with B1 locks from B&B Locks – B&B Locks

A new competence center for fighting crime was recently built in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. The Zurich Police and Justice Center (PJZ) allows the cantonal police, which are currently spread out over 30 locations, to be brought together with law enforcement authorities as well as the police and judicial prison.

The PJZ was created on the former area of ​​the Güterbahnhof in Zurich Aussersihl-Hard. Departments of the canton police, the public prosecutor’s office, and the penal system as well as the forensic institute, the Zurich police academy and parts of the compulsory measures court will be combined in the new building. The PJZ will provide about 2030 jobs in total. There are also 241 detention places for provisional arrests and pre-trial detention.

For the construction of the PJZ, cell doors with fire protection requirements were put out to tender. The B1 model from B&B Locks, which meets the technical and functional requirements needed for this project, was requested. The manufacturer of the cell doors had to prove fire test certification of their doors in combination with the B1 Lock.
