Context

Part of Birmingham City University, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is a £57 million teaching and performance facility that attracts internationally renowned performers and teachers, as well as the highest calibre students.

Consisting of 9,000m² of purpose designed teaching, rehearsal and state of the art performance space, the Conservatoire is a world class environment that inspires and impresses. The five performance venues and seven recording studios enable new ways of teaching, learning and practising.

Products installed

Delivering contemporary access solutions to this significant new development, TORMAX was contracted to install prestigious automatic revolving doors to the two main entrances as well as an automatic swing pass door and set of sliding doors.

Working with main contractor Galliford Try, TORMAX created an elegant lobby by positioning a set of automatic sliding doors between the three-wing revolving door and main foyer. To one side of the revolving door is located an automatic swing door, offering an alternative for less able users and to make deliveries easier. This combination is intensely practical, helping maintain the ambient internal temperature by minimising heat loss from the building. To the south of the building, another three-wing revolving door is also located.

This project clearly demonstrates the full scope of the TORMAX range of technologically advanced automatic door operators. Tried and tested in busy locations worldwide, TORMAX 5251 door drives power the two revolving doors. Deliberately high torque, the TORMAX 5251 is designed for reliability, with sensors automatically adapting performance to take account of external factors, such as a build of dirt or strong winds, for example.

The 1301 swing door drive is from the technologically advanced iMotion range of Tormax operators, the motors of which feature none of the working parts that usually wear out, such as gears and brushes, making them one of the most durable and reliable on the market today. The internal set of bi-parting sliding doors are driven by two TORMAX 2201 operators which are housed in a particularly slim casing, offering an unobtrusive automation for the minimalist entrance.

All the doors have a bronze anodised finish to harmonise with the modern façade of the building.
