AmicusHorizon is the head office for one of the largest housing associations in the South-East of England. TORMAX UK has installed a bespoke 360° curved glass sliding automatic door system that delivers a contemporary, sustainable entrance as part of a significant refurbishment programme.

A cost-effective and low-energy solution, staff and visitors are welcomed on approach by an outer set of glass doors which slide smoothly apart to give access to a small lobby, from which the second set of doors automatically open into a stunning new reception area. This ingenious configuration encourages the smooth flow of pedestrian traffic whilst efficiently minimising heat-loss from the building.

Working closely with commercial fit-out specialist Cube Interiors Solutions and glass and aluminium specialists Openwood Group, the TORMAX entrance is set within a full-height glass façade to create a visually impressive frontage and a light and vibrant interior. The new Croydon AmicusHorizon offices have received a Gold RICS Ska Rating. Contributing to the sustainability of the development, the TORMAX entrance is manufactured from 95% recyclable materials whilst the curved-sliding doors are powered by the efficient TORMAX 2201 low-energy operator.

This deliberately high torque door drive is powerful and reliable, delivering exceptional performance even under near constant use. As with all TORMAX operators, the 2201 is tested to well in excess of current industry requirements and has proven to require minimal maintenance over its long lifespan.

Ideal for glass facades such as AmicusHorizon, the 2201 operator is extremely compact and requires only a 100mm installation height by 142mm installation depth. This ensures the aesthetics of the entrance are maintained without any compromise to functionality of the entrance.
