Effective TORMAX access solution for Birmingham student accommodation

Effective TORMAX access solution for Birmingham student accommodation

TORMAX was contracted by DW Hicks Building Co. Ltd, to install their contemporary 4-wing automatic revolving door for the main entrance of Globe Works student accommodation in Birmingham.

Both doors are powered by in-house designed, TORMAX operators, allowing practical adjustment of operating speed and hold open/closing times to match pedestrian footfall.

Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX said: “The enduring combination of a revolving entrance with automatic swing pass door is an extremely practical solution for a wide variety of locations.”

“The revolving door is great at minimising heat-loss from a building yet delivers fast-moving access for large numbers of people. “

“The swing door ensures less-able users have clear access and is also ideal for bringing in bulky items – such as the large quantities of luggage that students arrive with at the start of term.”

Contributing to sustainability targets, both doors can be operated in low-energy mode.

The revolving door, powered by the high torque TORMAX 5251 door drive, can be activated by starting rotation only when slight pressure is applied to a door-leaf or rotating as soon as door sensors are triggered.

The swing door, driven by the technologically advanced TORMAX 1201 operator, can either be used in full-power application, in power-assisted manual door opening mode or low-energy mode without safety features.
