With an annual footfall of about 8m people, Newcastle Central station is one of the UK’s busiest stations outside of London. The new station concourse is part of a £8.6m refurbishment which has transformed the Grade I listed Victorian building into in a traveller-friendly space with modern standards of accessibility, better passenger information and a brighter environment.

Passengers using the new concourse at Newcastle Central station now enjoy the benefits of a number of popular retail concessions. TORMAX worked in conjunction with North Eastern Glass to install full-glass automatic sliding doors to the entrances of Paperchase and Boots UK.

The TORMAX iMotion 2202 drives the entrances to both shops and is one of the most technologically advanced bi-parting door operators on the market, delivering reliability with low maintenance requirements.

Door opening and closing speeds, and hold-open time can be easily adjusted by staff to minimise heat loss whilst ensuring customers feel welcome to enter into the shop. An intelligent microprocessor control system provides permanent monitoring of door leaf movements and automatically adjusts performance to accommodate say, a build-up of dirt on the floor.

Featuring reliable AC motor technology the slender iMotion 2202 sliding door drive requires an installation height of just 100mm, making it suitable for almost any location. Ideal for retail environments where hassle-free access is essential to encourage customers into the store, the door movements are quiet and smooth thanks to vibration-absorbent mountings on the guide rails, creating a pleasant ambience for shoppers.

“TORMAX automatic doors have been installed in busy retail outlets worldwide for over 60 years now,” confirms MD, Simon Roberts. “The unique design of our iMotion operators means that there are no parts in the motor that can wear out, such as gears or brushes. This significantly improves performance in the long term.”
