Large Automatic Entrance Pod Creates Striking Office Reception

Large Automatic Entrance Pod Creates Striking Office Reception

Creating a contemporary entrance solution, TORMAX recently installed a fully automatic, curved-sliding entrance pod to the Grade A office facility, Granite House, in Leicestershire.

Working closely with Benchmark Property and Beacon Commercial Solutions, who was undertaking an ambitious refurbishment of the entire reception area, TORMAX recommended this modern take on the traditional revolving door, as a highly practical option that offers easy access for all users whilst also helping maintain an ambient internal temperature.

At busy times, the double set of curved bi-parting sliding doors can be programmed to open in tandem, creating an opening space up to 40% greater than offered by linear sliding doors. When foot traffic is light, or in poor weather, the doors can be set to work independently, reducing heat loss from the building by creating an effective airlock between the reception and the outdoors.

Granite House is situated on the well-established Watermead Business Park, on the northern side of Leicester, and provides some of the best quality office space in the region. The extensive refurbishment included a feature stairwell, a new business lounge and meeting area with complimentary concierge service, as well as the aesthetically impactful, TORMAX automatic entrance pod.

The pod doors are powered by discrete TORMAX iMotion 2202.A operators which offer a multitude of impressive advantages.

Developed in-house in Switzerland, the iMotion 2202.A boasts an extended life expectancy due to the absence of parts that typically wear out, such as gears and brushes.

Advanced AC motor technology and state-of-the-art microprocessor controls combine to deliver seamless reliability and smooth operation, automatically adjusting door leaf movement in response to external factors, such as increased wind conditions, for example.

Moreover, the operator casing is just 100mm high, ensuring an elegant and unobtrusive profile, making it a perfect fit for upmarket environments such as Granite House.
