TORMAX Opens the Door to Work

TORMAX Opens the Door to Work

Allowing clear and easy access for all jobseekers, TORMAX was contracted to install an automatic sliding entrance to a new Dundas Job Centre that was opened during the pandemic, under the government’s Plan for Jobs.

With an external frontage located on a main through-fare within the local shopping centre, it was important that the Job Centre was made to be as welcoming as possible to every possible user.

The bi-parting sliding doors are powered by the in-house designed TORMAX Win Drive 2201 operator, delivering smooth operation, even on the busiest of days. Housed in a casing that measures just 142mm x 100mm, the Win Drive is neat and compact, helping create a professional and contemporary aesthetic. Further encouraging jobseekers to enter, the entrance is fully compliant with current legislation, offering a wide-open doorway for the less able, as well as for those with buggies and prams, for example.

Simple 2-key programming allows job centre staff to quickly adapt door opening and closing speeds to reflect the volume of foot traffic and weather, helping minimise heat loss from the reception area. When the facility is closed, security is assured thanks to an electromechanical bolt that delivers a solid and secure locking mechanism.

“With TORMAX you get the complete package - bespoke design, prompt manufacture and installation as well as ongoing maintenance from our team of professionally trained engineers,” confirms Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX:

"With worldwide coverage and over 65 years of expertise, TORMAX really is a company that can be relied on to deliver truly outstanding entrance solutions, even in the testing times that were presented by the pandemic.”
