African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, Johannesburg, South Africa

The Protea Hotel African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, situated in the new urban Melrose Arch development in Johannesburg, South Africa is Africa's first truly 'Hip Hotel'. This unique hotel offers personalised facilities and services of an exceptional standard combined with a sense of fun and entertainment. It was this desire to offer guests the ultimate in modern elegance and sophistication with a definitive security solution that lead African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel to choose VingCard Classic locks with polished chrome finish and Ship lever handle as well as the Elsafe Sentinel Advanced Safes.

Each one of the 117 luxury bedrooms and the exclusive penthouse was fitted with VingCard Classic locks. These locks were found to provide the quality the hotel needed to secure its guests while providing ease of use and stylish design. In order to secure the hotels' valuable property and stock, all store room doors have also been fitted with VingCard Classic locks.

Elsafe Sentinel Advanced Safes have been installed in all the guest rooms as well as the penthouse. The safes were chosen because of their advanced security features - the revolutionary locking mechanism that resists forcible entry, the complete audit trail protected by Flash Ram and its upgradeability to future standards without having to change the box - made it a winner and its trendy, upmarket design confirmed its place at the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel. In staying with the fun and hip approach of the hotel, each safe has been installed behind an amusing painting of a thief breaking into a safe.

The African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel is a 5 star boutique hotel built at a cost of over R100 million. It has some unique features such as a swimming pool that has tables for dining in the pool, underwater music and lights, bedrooms with their own surround sound entertainment system with DVD player and a bath where you can relax and watch any DVD.

ASSA ABLOY SA, VingCard’s distributor in South Africa, is proud to have been associated with providing high quality, reliable security solutions to the hip, upmarket new African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel.
