DORMA exhibits versatile product range at £74 million Riverside Museum, Glasgow

At the £74 million Riverside Museum in Glasgow – designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid – an extensive range of glass doors, floor springs and architectural ironmongery from DORMA is providing a first class experience for more than 4,000 visitors every day.

Funded by Glasgow City Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Riverside Museum Appeal, the museum houses over 3,000 exhibits and showcases the city's transport, shipbuilding and engineering heritage. With the needs and expectations of the visitors a priority throughout the design process, careful consideration was given to every element specified across its 7,000m² exhibition area.

Appointed to supply and install a comprehensive range of complex exhibition systems, street scenes and displays, fit-out specialists Mivan turned to global partner for premium access solutions and services, DORMA. For a series of internal door specifications, the company supplied patches, profiles, rails, handles, floor springs and glass to provide safe and reliable operation every time.

The Riverside Museum – Zaha Hadid’s first major public commission to open in the UK – welcomed over two million visitors in its first sixteen months of opening. Millions of visitors now enjoy a smooth, high quality experience as they navigate through 150 interactive museum displays thanks to an innovative range of glass products and architectural ironmongery from DORMA.
