GEZE UK provided automatic swing door operators for the National Army Museum, in London as part of a three-year, multi-million pound make-over.
After renovations the museum’s five themed galleries, laid out over four floors, now centres around a light and airy atrium. It now also includes temporary exhibition space, a study centre and education spaces, a café, shop and Play Base, for children up to the age of eight.
Included in the re-fit were five pairs of TSA 160 NT automatic swing door operators. These were fitted to the corridor and entrance to the museum’s board room and the corridor and two doors to Play Base.
The TSA 160 NTs are electronically controlled, hydraulic swing door mechanisms which are ideal for heavy doors in high traffic areas, increasing accessibility. They are extremely reliable and require little maintenance.
Designers wanted to create a more welcoming, accessible and flexible environment, enabling the National Army Museum to manage increasing visitor figures, predicted to reach 400,000 by 2026. As part of this GEZE’s architectural ironmongery was specified by Interior Hardware, of Aldridge, in the West Midlands.
