Open Entrances have provided their Automatic Sliding Curved Glass External Doors for 10 Gresham Street.
The Architect specified glass as the preferred material for the entrances, lifts, and lobbies, to maximise the amount of natural light entering the building.
Open Entrances were presented with the challenge of producing a glass 'wave' facade incorporating curved sliding and internal linear sliding glass doors with minimal framework to maximise the amount of light entering the building.
The automatic sliding curved glass external doors were blended into the all-glass curved "wave" façade.
Internal straight sliding doors combined with concealed air curtains in floor and ceiling form an entrance lobby that provides a thermal and acoustic threshold to the building.
Existing recessed floor light housings have been 'recycled' and used to conceal all the safety and sensor equipment.
Other key features:
• Concealed Air Curtains
• Minimal framework maximising light entering the building.
• Automatic curved sliding doors
• Lobby provides thermal and acoustic buffer
