Products used Light frame revolving entrance system with TORMAX 5251 operators
 
 

TORMAX has supplied and installed over 20 automatic entrances to the prestigious Zig Zag Building, London Victoria. In addition to two glass revolving doors to the main office entrance, TORMAX was responsible for the automatic sliding and swing doors installed to various restaurants including Jamie’s Italian and Iberica.

“This has been a significant project worth over £200K,” confirms MD for TORMAX, Simon Roberts. “Our comprehensive range of Swiss-designed iMotion door operators meant that we were able to offer the ideal solutions for the demands of the different locations.”

Combining energy efficiency with exceptional reliability, the iMotion range is noted for the longevity of its operators, even in the busiest environments.

Developed by Land Securities and completed in November 2015, The Zig Zag Building is 187,000 sq ft of high-end commercial office space situated on an island site surrounded by restaurants and retail outlets. Stretching over eleven floors, the building delivers bright, airy, customisable office space as well as three floors of retail outlets. TORMAX was contracted to supply and fit external automatic entrances by Josef Gartner GmbH.

The two TORMAX glass revolving entrances are constructed using a light-frame solution. Designed to be extremely strong, the entrances appear to be almost entirely glass with just a thin crafted aluminium profile on the door leaves and narrow chrome steel profiles on the drum walls. Further contributing to the elegant appearance, the ceiling cover is entirely glass and there is no obtrusive central column.

Driving the revolving doors, TORMAX 5251 high torque microprocessor operators produce exceptionally smooth, quiet operation whilst simplified programming options ensure settings are adapted to consistently minimise energy consumption.

Elsewhere in the Zig Zag development, TORMAX recommended their iMotion 2401 sliding door operators, as well as their iMotion 1301 swing door drives and underfloor concealed iMotion 1401 swing door operators. The entire iMotion range has been designed for reliability, longevity and minimal routine maintenance with no internal elements to wear out, such as gears and brushes.

“We were delighted to work with Gartner on this iconic development,” comments Roberts. “With such a broad range of technologically advanced door drives, as well as over 60 years of experience in the market, TORMAX is well-placed to handle the varied demands of a project such as this.”
