As part of a programme of extensive renovation, TORMAX was specified to install a four-wing automatic revolving door to the main entrance of the four-star Grosvenor Pulford Hotel, Chester. Blending seamlessly with the eighteenth century building, the new revolving door successfully combines the elegance of a by-gone era with the convenience and welcome luxury of an automatic entrance. Driven by the technologically superior TORMAX 5201 motor, reliability and smooth operation is assured for many years to come.

The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa has been significantly upgraded since the family-owned, Nelson Hotels, assumed ownership of the property in 1994. Main contractor on the most recent £1.5m project, HH Smith & Sons of Manchester, has been responsible for the construction of a stunning two-storey reception with new mezzanine floor above. The impressive external glass wall at the front of the property was contracted to Glass & General Maintenance who worked with TORMAX to deliver a first-class automatic entrance.

With over 65 years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of world-class automatic entrances, TORMAX was well placed for this prestigious job. “Our operators have been engineered for performance and reliability at our HQ in Switzerland,” explains Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “Incorporating a high-torque motor, the 5201 revolving door drive has been combined with our ‘classic’ profile to create a high quality solution.”

The TORMAX 5201 operator incorporates a technologically advanced programmable logic circuit, allowing hotel staff to adjust all aspects of the door’s operation to reflect weather conditions, as well as changing levels of foot traffic. This ensures the reception area is kept warm and welcoming at all times by minimising heat-loss from the building.

In addition, a self-monitoring function optimises door performance, automatically adjusting movement in response to factors such as wind resistance or a build-up of dirt for example. If an emergency should lead to power failure, the Grosvenor’s revolving door can be used manually to ensure unrestricted egress.

“We are absolutely elated with every aspect of the new reception area,” comments Lucy Nelson, Sales & Marketing Director for Nelson Hotels. “A spectacular central hub has been created in which we can greet and welcome our guests.”
