TORMAX ensure warm welcome at Gloucester Cathedral

TORMAX have installed their automatic glass entrance system at Gloucester Cathedral, ensuring all visitors receive a warm welcome.

Creating a light and airy lobby area, two sets of glass sliding doors provide access into the Norman Nave, the main visitor entrance.

Powered by TORMAX iMotion 2202 operators, the doors slide open as people approach ensuring reliability that is unsurpassed in the marketplace.

Lorna Giles, Head of Visitor Experience at the Cathedral said: “With over 400,000 people visiting each year and a tradition of welcome going back to our roots as a Benedictine Abbey, Gloucester Cathedral’s front doors are in constant use.”

“Our new glazed draught lobby lets our visitors see into the Cathedral on arrival and the new automatic doors have improved visitor flow whilst helping to demonstrate that all are welcome.”

TORMAX replaced the existing wooden Edwardian doors with automatic glass doors that blend with the ecclesiastical aesthetics of the Cathedral.

Placed in an elegant casing that measures 100mm high, the iMotion 2202 door is ideal for a traditional setting such as this.

Vibration-absorbent mountings on the guide rails ensure quiet opening and closing of the doors, helping maintain the quietness inside the Cathedral.
