Oxford University opts for invisible automatic access

Oxford University opts for invisible automatic access

The purpose-built Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University, recently opened its TORMAX automated swing doors to teachers, students and academics, welcoming them into a state-of-the-art facility that incorporates lecture theatres, exhibition spaces, seminar and meeting rooms as well as a café and informal seating areas.

The Blavatnik School of Government is a global school pursuing a vision of better government, stronger societies, and richer human opportunities across the world.

Bringing all members together for the first time in three years, the new building has been designed to maximise energy efficiency and sustainability by combining modern control systems with ground-breaking technology.

Crafted by Birmingham Veneers Ltd, the two impressive wooden and glass entrance doors are automated using two TORMAX iMotion 1401 operators concealed in sealed casings underneath the floor.

Ensuring longevity and reliability, even in such a busy location, the iMotion motors, which are uniquely designed with no abrading parts to cause friction wear, dramatically minimises maintenance, allowing them to be neatly located out of sight.
