WHSmith, Paddington Railway Station, London
Contractor: Vincent Shopfitters
Type of works: installation of SLX/PSX automatic bi-parting sliding door.
Kaba Door Systems has completed an automatic door installation for WHSmith at Paddington Railway Station, London.
Working with Vincent Shopfitters, Kaba installed an SLX/PSX automatic bi-parting sliding door to the shop entrance which is situated on the main concourse, ensuring contact free access for commuters.
The SLX drive system is a compact all-in-one unit, with the door gear motors, scanners and controls contained within its slim-line drive case. Discreetly positioned at the top of a door, the SLX is ideal for design-led installations especially when combined with Kabas slim-line PSX aluminium profile doors, and is suitable for use with conventional and telescopic door wings of all sizes and weights.
All of the units drive elements and electronics use Bluetooth technology, enabling the doors to be operated remotely from up to 10m away with devices such as mobile phones, PDAs and Kabas new keyring sized F-Key. A number of different doors can be activated using one device to offer easy access without the need for separate controls. Added door security is also available using Kabas new BEDiX portable control unit and C-BEDiX wall-mounted unit, which can provide access by password.
