Project overview

The manual access system to the iconic Sussex Heights building in the centre of Brighton needed upgrading. TORMAX was contracted to install two sets of automatic sliding glass doors, creating a contemporary entrance befitting this prestigious residential tower. Powered by the incredibly reliable TORMAX iMotion 2202 operator, the doors silently slide open in tandem, allowing residents and their guests smooth access into the lobby, whilst minimising heat loss from the building.

Background

Sussex Heights (www.sussexheights.co.uk) is a luxury apartment block designed by Richard Seifert and built in in the late 1960’s. Rising to 102m high, it is the tallest residential building on the south coast and offers outstanding views across the sea, the South Downs and over the city of Brighton. A landmark building, it consists of 115 sound-proofed and spacious flats on 23 floors and a large penthouse taking up the whole of the top floor.

Upgrade improvements

In keeping with the upmarket environment of Sussex Heights, the old manual swing doors were replaced with an automatic entrance system more befitting a luxury apartment block. TORMAX recommended its iMotion 2202 operators to power the doors as they are housed in a slim casing, making them particularly unobtrusive and suitable for a sophisticated, minimalist entrance. Vibration-absorbent mountings of the guide rails ensures elegantly quiet operation.

Understandably security is an important consideration for residents and the new TORMAX automatic doors feature an electro-mechanical locking mechanism to ensure a high level of burglary protection. They are also certified for rescue and escape routes.

Testimonial

“Sussex Heights is right in the middle of Brighton and is busy with residents coming and going, enjoying the shopping and entertainment offered by this vibrant seaside town,” says Hattie Kershaw of property management company, Ellmans Henderson Ltd. “The upgraded automatic entrance is smart and welcoming, defining the ambience of the accommodation right from the start.”
