Ahmarra bespoke herringbone doors for stylish hotel

Specialist fire door manufacturer, Ahmarra has tailor-made doorsets for Seven Hotel, a new luxury boutique hotel on Southend seafront.

Herringbone design

Ahmarra worked closely with both the hoteliers and award-winning designers, Tibbatts Abel, to meet the design requirements for a contemporary, yet timeless concept.

120 severe duty timber fire doors were manufactured in a bespoke dyed black ash finish, many of the doors also featured a striking herringbone design.

Seven Hotel has opened following a £4million investment, the four-star hotel has 37 bedrooms and the focal points include the Aurum Restaurant and adjoining gin-centric bar, with over 30 types of gin.

“Our experience of manufacturing doors for luxury hotels has enabled us to offer a premium product, which not only looked great but was priced to fit the strict budget controls,” said Martyn Fennell, Ahmarra’s Business Development Manager.

Sadiq Chikte, Director of Seven Hotel, said: “Seven Hotel opened in January to great applause, offering a much-needed luxury ‘London style’ boutique offering to Southend. The bespoke door designs formed an integral part of the contemporary design of the hotel and as well as looking fantastic, it was equally important that we were able to meet stringent fire safety requirements. Ahmarra offered us the reassurance of fully certified Q-Mark fire doors, that not only look striking but will perform as expected. We are very happy to recommend Ahmarra’s product and services.”

Ahmarra’ s reputation for excellence has led to it supplying timber doors for some of the UK’s finest hoteliers including such brands as InterContinental, Mondrian, Hilton, Apex, Grange, Mandarin Oriental and Sol Melia.

Ahmarra has recently launched The Hotel and Hospitality Collection. For more information visit
