GEZE Pod is the Perfect Solution for Places For People

A gloomy unappealing entrance at The Pavilions in Preston has been transformed with the installation of a light, spacious and draught proof curved lobby from GEZE UK, one of the UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control systems.

GEZE’s Slimdrive SC curved sliding automatic doors were specified by architects Summers-Inman to create a stunning focal point and welcoming entrance in the extended reception at the Places For People Group’s headquarters. Places For People also wanted to control access to the building so the outer doors allow visitors into the lobby, while the inner doors are activated by the company’s reception staff. Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director of GEZE UK, explained that Summers Inman chose an elliptical entrance because it provided the perfect solution for access control.

Speaking about the new entrance, Dan Tipping, Building Surveyor at Summers-Inman said: “As well as looking dated the original reception had manual doors meaning staff had to get up to let visitors in, and it was cold in winter and hot in summer. The new circular lobby has created a stylish modern entrance that compliments the design of the extension and perfectly meets the company’s needs.”
