Client: St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School, Birmingham
Contractor: Quantum Construction Ltd
Type of works: supply of two sets of bi-parting TORMAX automatic sliding doors
Creating a more prestigious and welcoming main entrance, St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School in Birmingham now benefits from an internal lobby area created by two sets of bi-parting TORMAX automatic sliding doors. Precision engineered in Switzerland the TORMAX iMotion® 2301 door operators incorporate cutting-edge technology to deliver a sustainable, low energy solution that both optimises operational performance whilst maximising energy efficiency.
Quantum Construction Ltd contracted TORMAX to supply and install automatic doors as part of a larger refurbishment to the front entrance which included the removal of concrete steps to allow easy access for all users, as well as the installation of a contemporary glass canopy. We have been impressed with the performance of a set of TORMAX automatic doors that were installed to the rear of the building some years ago, so it was logical to specify them again, comments June Simms, Head of Finance and Premises for the School. I always look for Best Value from any project and the aesthetically impressive entrance at the front certainly fulfils this criteria successfully encouraging free-flowing foot traffic whilst cutting down heat lost from the building.
A worldwide company, TORMAX has over 50 years experience in design, manufacture and installation of technologically advanced automatic doors. All systems are fully compliant with current DDA regulations, providing easy access whilst also helping reduce energy costs. iMotion® technology is the result of a dedicated research and development programme and is one of the most sophisticated systems on the market today. As the high-torque, synchronous motors have been designed without gears, brushes or other parts that can wear out, they have an almost indefinite life expectancy. Further reducing the need for maintenance, a self-monitoring system automatically adapts door function to take account of factors such as a build up of dirt which may otherwise effect performance.
TORMAX offer a full range of automatic door entrance systems that benefit from iMotion® technology including sliding, curved and angular sliding doors as well as swing doors that are powered by discrete operators installed under the floor.
