A welcoming entrance to new Staffordshire Wildlife Centre

A welcoming entrance to new Staffordshire Wildlife Centre

TORMAX have provided two automatic single sliding doors work for Staffordshire Wildlife Trusts’ new Wolseley Centre.

The aim was to create a spacious lobby area that helps ensure a clear through-flow of pedestrians whilst also reducing heat-loss from the building.

Powered by two TORMAX Windrive 2201 operators, the doors can each drive a single door leaf of up to 120kg or a double set of doors weighing up to 100kg per leaf.

TORMAX worked with main contractor, Sutton Coldfield Construction Ltd, delivering an attractive automatic access solution that ensures the facility can be easily accessed by everyone.

The Windrive 2201 operators are a cost-effective option, are quick and simple to install and are also easy for National Trust staff to adjust to meet the demands of the day.

Straight-forward, two-key programming allows the opening and closing speed, hold-open time and opening width, to be altered to reflect changing weather conditions and fluctuating levels of foot traffic.

Sue Chance, Head of Commercial Operations for the Wildlife Trust said: “Our exciting new facility is attracting a great many visitors.”

“The café is extremely popular, and the automatic entrance is a definite boon, making it easy for families with buggies, wheelchair users and the elderly to all come inside and enjoy the lake view.”
