Context

Woking Borough Council's Civic Offices have benefited from a significant internal renovation, regenerating both staff and public areas across the ground floor, providing several public services within the same location.

Work undertaken

As part of this major refurbishment project, TORMAX was contracted to install a prestigious automatic revolving door with automatic swing door to the offices in Surrey. 

Work undertaken

The impressive three-wing automatic revolving door is driven by the powerful, high torque 5201 operator. Precision-engineered at the TORMAX HQ in Switzerland, the 5201 is a technologically advanced drive that delivers exceptional reliability year after year, thanks to impeccable design credentials that minimise maintenance requirements.

The swing door is powered by the TORMAX 1201 door drive which has similar reliability credentials and has been installed in busy locations worldwide.

User-friendly keypads for both entrances allow staff to adapt door movement to match foot traffic levels and weather conditions, minimising energy consumption and ensuring clear through-flow of pedestrians, at all times.

The revolving door also features self-monitoring sensors that automatically adjust door movement to compensate for external influences such as increased wind conditions, or a build-up of dirt for example. If an emergency should lead to power failure, the revolving door can be used manually to ensure unrestricted egress.

Outcome

The new entrance system provides clear and easy access for all staff and visitors whilst minimising heat loss from the building, making it a sustainable solution too.

“The combination of a revolving door with pass door is a perfect solution for busy council offices such as this one,” comments Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “The majority of pedestrians will use the revolving door whilst the swing door allows for the delivery of bulky packages, easy access for less able users and those with buggies and prams.”

Testimonial

“The newly refurbished parts of the Civic Offices have been well-received by staff and the community,” confirms Tom Bardsley, Senior Building Surveyor for Woking Borough Council. “The smart revolving entrance door fits in well with the surrounding architecture whilst also being extremely practical.”
