Formula 1 Hospitality Suite

Formula 1 Hospitality Suite

Client: A Smith Gt Bentley Ltd
Type of works: supply and installation of DORMA ES200 sliding door operators.

One of the world’s most elite Formula 1 racing teams has incorporated DORMA ES200 sliding door operators into its new hospitality suite. DORMA holds pole position in the automatics market and their reputation for quality and reliability was an important factor in the choice of the ES200’s for this high-profile application.

The hospitality suite has been constructed by Colchester based A Smith Gt Bentley (ASGB). The company is one of the largest specialist coach builders in Europe and the new F1 facility comprises of five articulated trailer transportable modules linked together to form the new suite.

David Newton, Senior Project Manager at ASGB explains: “This is one of those projects where we really couldn’t afford to get it wrong – with the specification or timing – as the new suite had to be delivered to Barcelona in time for the Spanish Grand Prix. We chose the ES200’s for their sleek aesthetics and space saving capability, especially compared to swing doors. We have worked with DORMA in the past and know they can be relied on to provide their products to meet tight deadlines”.

The innovative design of the ES200 enables it to meet the requirements of almost any automatic sliding door application. Thanks to the new programming functions, installation, set-up and maintenance are simpler and faster than ever before.

The exceptional operating performance of the ES200 is matched by its stylish, clean design. Completed with award-winning, DORMA Contur design perforated end caps, the resulting sophisticated appearance complements any interior design scheme.
