DVLA headquarters, Swansea

Type of works: installation of RONDOR automatic door system.

Upgrading the main staff and public entrance to the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) headquarters in Swansea, local aluminium fabricators AB Glass contracted TORMAX™ to supply and install their technologically advanced curved-sliding RONDOR automatic door system. Visually impressive, the RONDOR consists of two sets of bi-parting curved doors which slide smoothly apart to allow clear access.

“This is the first time we have worked with TORMAX™ and we have been impressed with not only the cost-effectiveness of the product but also its undoubted quality,” comments James Brayley, Sales and Marketing Director, AB Glass. From the date of order, TORMAX™ only had six weeks to manufacturer and install the 2m diameter RONDOR.

An extension to the existing DVLA building, the new lobby area is part of a three year refurbishment project which has included a budget of over £3m for replacement windows and doors. A contemporary twist on the traditional revolving door, the RONDOR is highly functional, delivering an entranceway that has a 50% larger opening space than sliding doors would allow in the same location. Extremely reliable, the doors are powered by the tried and tested TORMAX™ TEP operators, neatly housed within the circular casing. During inclement weather, opening times can be adjusted to create an effective airlock between the two sets of bi-parting doors, reducing heat loss from the building and helping maintain an ambient internal temperature.

With a comprehensive product portfolio and bespoke design service, TORMAX™ can offer an automatic door entrance solution for almost any location. A team of professionally trained, dedicated installers operates nationwide, delivering fast and efficient service and long-term support.
