Gilgen transparent automatic door gets the Royal approval

Gilgen transparent automatic door gets the Royal approval

Gilgen Door Systems have provided their specialist fully glazed automatic door from Gilgen Door Systems for Royal Standard Place, an office block in central Nottingham.

The Gilgen SLX- PSF sliding door was chosen by HKL Specialists because its clean and contemporary appearance matched perfectly with the glazed façade of the renovated building.

The full-glass design of the door, without visible door leaf profiles, helps create a visually appealing, clear view entrance with improved access for visitors and staff.

Gilgen Door Systems installed the door within a steel ‘goalpost’ frame within a structural opening of 4.1m.

The two sliding door leafs have a clear opening width of 1.8m to guarantee ease of access and are positioned, along with the side screens, in direct line with the structural glass installed above the door ensuring a seamless appearance.

The technologically advanced SLX drive system is concealed within an aluminium trim to optimise the clean lines of the entrance and comes with integral safety measures including auto-stop/ reverse and emergency operating mode.

The doors are activated through an access control panel on the outside with remote release and by infrared sensors on the inside which trigger the doors automatically as pedestrians leave the building.

As a member of the Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) all Gilgen automatic doors are installed to BS EN16005 safety guidelines.

Following a site survey a fully glazed pocket screen and fixed side panel were installed on the inside of the doors to eliminate any risk of contact with the moving door leafs.

Although of slender design the doors are strong, incorporating toughened safety glass with polished edges, whilst extra security is provided by through a solenoid lock within door operator itself along with manual locking on the bottom rail.

With its clear-view full glass finish that blends with contemporary interiors the Gilgen SLX-PSF helps create an inspirational environment ideal for offices, receptions, hospitality suites and multi-retail outlets.
