TORMAX has provided an automatic entrance system for the Central Foundation Girls’ School in Tower Hamlets. With a contemporary aluminium profile, the two glass swing doors are powered by technologically advanced TORMAX iMotion 1201 drives. Delivering improved security, the new doors allows reception staff to safely control visitors into the school, with teachers having swipe card access.
With over 1,500 pupils the Central Foundation Girls’ School is a large, oversubscribed, and inclusive 11-18 secondary school in the heart of London. The swing doors are situated in an extension to the school that was completed a few years ago and deliver improved access that complies fully with DDA and security requirements.
With an installation height of just 85mm and a length of 640mm, the TORMAX 1201 operator is sufficiently compact to make installation possible in most locations. Housed in an anodized aluminium casing, it is a discreet and unobtrusive solution. As the 1201 door drive is modular by design, as requirements at the school change over time, the entrance can easily be upgraded with additional functions, such as the Multi Door Module that allows communication between multiple drives and also links to building management systems.
Michael McEllaney of S&D Contracting said "“The new internal access system meets all the schools demands. It not only looks aesthetically smart but offers the functionality the client needed for this multi-use entrance.”
