TSA 325 NT revolving door / Slimdrive EMD-f automatic swing doors / TSA 160 NTswing door operator / TS 2000 NV door closers
The Welsh Governnment's regional offices in Carmarthen required reurbishing to provide a modern office environment and facilities for staff and public who would benefit from improved energy efficiency, building performance and a reduced carbon footprint. A number of doorways and entrances had to be reconfigured as part of the redesign.
GEZE UK supplied a range of access solutions for the property.
A TSA 325 NT automatic revolving door was installed at the main entrance. This is fully glazed with slim aluminium profiles with rounded edges. Activated by a motion detector inside and out, the door accelerates and rotates to allow visitors and staff to move through door without disruption. It has various operating modes with adjustable speeds and run-out times that can be set to accommodate the seasons – longer for summer or none in winter.
15 Slimdrive EMD-f automatic swing doors were installed. The electro-mechanical swing door mechanism makes it extremely versatile, providing easy access for those with mobility issues. Assisted opening can be initiated using the operating button with guaranteed constant opening and closing speed.
Four TSA 160 NT – one of four fitted on the premises - operates a door which links the public area to corridors that lead to work areas. The TSA 160 NT is an electronically controlled, hydraulic swing door operator - ideal for heavy doors in high traffic areas. It is extremely reliable and requires little maintenance.
More than 100 TS 2000 NV door closers were fitted to internal doors in the complex. The closers are suitable for doors with up to 1100 mm leaf widths and for use on fire and smoke protection doors. They have an adjustable closing force to meet Building Regulations Part B.
Andy Howland, Sales and Marketing Director for GEZE UK said: "It was extremely satisfying to work on a project which has resulted in two aging office building being given a new lease of life with design and application which has provided them with a greater flow and connectivity to each other and their surroundings.
"The GEZE products used in this redevelopment provide great functionality and benefits for those using the building and compliment the contemporary aesthetics that have been applied to make this regional office adaptable for the challenges ahead."
Paul White, owner of PWIDF said: "PWIDF always specify GEZE products for our commercial projects as we find that they are high quality and very durable products at a price that suits the client’s requirements."
