Challenge

An aesthetically impressive new facility, The Beacon in Newcastle provides a focal point in the community. It offers a wide range of facilities including conference and leisure opportunities, affordable and flexible office space as well as artisan workshops and a bistro restaurant. 

Solution

The building's glass frontage incorporates a practical yet prestigious TORMAX automatic 3-wing revolving entrance, combined with an automatic swing door powered by the technologically advanced iMotion 1301 operator. 

Set into a glass curtain wall from North Eastern Glass, the TORMAX revolving door combines intense practicality with contemporary aesthetics that are enhanced by the surprisingly slim transom in which the door operator is housed. Incorporating a programmable logic circuit, the revolving door can easily be set to optimum performance levels using a self-explanatory keypad which allows all aspects of door operation to be carefully adjusted to accurately reflect external weather conditions as well as changing levels of foot traffic.

If an emergency should lead to power failure, the revolving door, like all TORMAX products, can continue to be used manually to ensure unrestricted egress.

Outcome

Creating clear and easy access for all pedestrian traffic, the low-energy door drives positively contribute to the sustainability of the building, effectively cutting energy bills by minimising through-draughts and helping maintain the internal ambient temperature.

All materials used in the construction were chosen to maximise the potential to recycle at the end of the life of the building, helping The Beacon achieve a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating.
