Park Central Hotel, Bournemouth

Park Central Hotel, Bournemouth

Type of works: supply of TORMAX™ Win Drive operator for glass bi-parting automatic sliding doors.

Creating the right first impression is crucial for any four star accommodation, which is why the new boutique-style Park Central Hotel in Bournemouth specified a contemporary sliding entrance from TORMAX™, one the UK’s leading manufacturers of advanced door technology. Entirely frameless, a set of glass bi-parting automatic sliding doors powered by the TORMAX™ Win Drive operator work silently in tandem to welcome guests into a light, modern reception area.

Situated close to the Bournemouth International Centre and overlooking the coast, the Park Central Hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard throughout with the aim of offering guests top-quality facilities and service in a personalised setting. Working closely with Glass Products Ltd who designed, manufactured and installed the glass and framing, TORMAX™ recommended the Win Drive All Glass frameless door operator as the epitome of luxurious minimalism, accurately reflecting the hotel’s ethos.

Without any visible top or bottom rails, the glass doors slide smoothly open and close as if by invisible force, creating a visually impressive, modern entrance. A hi-tech mechanism concealed within the operator cover fixes the doors at the top whilst the glass is stabilised at floor level using an unobtrusive sprung-loaded guide to maintain constant pressure.

The TORMAX™ low-energy Win Drive also benefits the environment by allowing precision setting of door functions including opening speed and hold-open time, ensuring heat lost from the building is minimised. “We have worked with TORMAX™ on a number of projects in the past, comments Julian Paul, Managing Director of Glass Products Ltd. “Customer satisfaction is high as the doors have a high level of functionality allowing operation to be personalised to suit each setting.”
