As part of an ambitious £1million refurbishment programme, Gilgen Door Systems was appointed to design and install a bespoke 360° automatic curved sliding door system to the main entrance of Stafford Library.
The library which is owned and managed by Staffordshire Borough Council was recently moved to a new building in the heart of the town centre and Novus Property Solutions was selected as the main contractor to transform the library into a brand new energising space for visitors to enjoy.
The four-leaf GILGEN SRM curved sliding door with 360° self supporting porch blends harmoniously with the contemporary façade of the building creating an impressive, stylish and highly accessible entrance designed to benefit visitors for years to come. The SRM system consists of two sets of curved bi-parting door leaves, one externally facing and one internally facing, interlocked to optimise pedestrian flow and reduce energy loss from the building. The doors are driven by a powerful GILGEN SRM drive motor which delivers high performance operation and is field proven for durability.
Ben Adams, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member said “The library is first class, looks fantastic and feels warm and inviting. It makes exactly the statement that we would want from a modern library in the heart of the county town”.
