Context

Originally constructed in the 1980s, the prestigious new office development of 24 King William Street, London has been comprehensively redeveloped by main contractor VolkerFitzpatrick, to meet the needs of 21st century tenants. Completed throughout to a Category A specification, the building is located at a key entry point to the City from London Bridge and delivers 70,000 sq ft of premium office space.

TORMAX was specified to deliver a double set of sliding doors to the main entrance as well as a single sliding door giving clear access from the rear of the building.

Products supplied

Opening into an impressive double-height reception, TORMAX curved bi-parting glass doors welcome staff and visitors into the building. Powered by the reliable TORMAX iMotion 2301 operator, the 3m-high automatic sliding glass doors create an aesthetically attractive frontage, perfectly mirroring the curved façade of the building. A single telescopic single sliding door, powered by an iMotion 2302 operator, gives access through to a tranquil urban garden.

“Automatic curved sliding doors look stunning and definitely create an eye-catching entrance that really makes a building stand out from the rest”, said Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “The spacious and light-filled reception at 24 King William Street is the perfect backdrop for such an inspiring entrance.”

Both the iMotion 2302 and 2301 door drives are considered to be sustainable solutions, being precision engineered to minimise energy consumption during normal operation whilst reducing heat loss from the reception thanks to a combination of rapid reaction sensors and powerful opening and closing speeds. The operators themselves are manufactured using 95% recyclable materials.

In addition to being environmentally sound, the TORMAX iMotion door drives are recognised for their reliability and durability thanks to technologically advanced synchronous motors which have no abrading parts to wear out, delivering near-indefinite life expectancy. Offering design flexibility in the future, the innovative modular construction of the entire iMotion range allows easy expansion of an entrance systems without making existing operators redundant.
