TORMAX Classic large 4-leaf revolving door frame powered by TORMAX TRP door operator. TORMAX iMotion 1201 swing door drives to set of two swing pass doors
Part of a £1m regeneration project at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow includes upgrading the main entrance. There was also a new emergency department, a complete revamp of outpatients and other waiting areas, and a restructure of ward configuration to improve health care provision through more efficient use of space.
As part of this redevelopment project, TORMAX was contracted by MK Contracts Ltd to install an impressive four-wing automatic revolving door to the main entrance. With an internal diameter of over 6m, this prestigious entrance system delivers clear and unhindered access for all patients, staff and visitors, even at the busiest times of the day.
The TORMAX Classic large revolving door frame installed at the Princess Alexandra Hospital features a strong central pillar constructed from steel for longevity and is suitable for door diameters from 3.6m up to an imposing 7.4m. For safety and rapid evacuation, the revolving door has an integral break-out system, allowing the leaves to be swung out of the way in an emergency.
Additional access is offered via a set of swing doors situated to one side, powered by a pair of advanced TORMAX iMotion 1201 operators.
Delivering continuous, reliability even under the highest levels of pedestrian traffic, a TORMAX TRP door drive powers the weighty four-leaf door. With a built-in height of just 145mm, the TRP operator can be neatly concealed in the floor or within the canopy of a revolving door. An advanced control system automatically captures system-specific data, ensuring efficient and safe operation whilst minimising heat loss from the hospital.
“The transformed entranceway is certainly fit for the 21st century,” comments Pasqualino Risi, Associate Director of Estates and Facilities at the Princess Alexandra. “Not only does it meet all current disability discrimination requirements but also significantly enhances the patient experience on entering the hospital environment.”
