Requirement

Situated on 12 acres of landscaped gardens, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Spa in Chester, which is managed by Valor Hospitality Europe, offers stylish accommodation, a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, a sumptuously decorated lounge and bar as well as a spa and fitness centre, and flexible event and meeting rooms.

As part of a significant redevelopment programme, TORMAX was contracted to manufacture and install a revolving entrance door combined with an automatic swing door, giving clear and easy access to the grand reception area.

Work undertaken

TORMAX installed a contemporary, 3-wing automatic revolving door to the refurbished reception. Providing a prestigious access solution that blends seamlessly with the original 18th century manor house and the modern 79-bedroom extension wing, the revolving door is powered by the TORMAX 5201 operator, ensuring ongoing safe and reliable access, even on the busiest of day.

Using a simple programmable keypad, hotel staff can quickly adapt the speed of the revolving door to reflect weather conditions and how busy the entrance is. This not only minimises heat-loss from the reception area but also helps to ensure energy efficient operation, contributing to a low carbon footprint for the hotel.

Safety of guests and staff is assured thanks to an ingenious design which ensures that even in the event of a power failure during an emergency evacuation, the brake mechanism that stops the door being manually spun too fast, resulting in accidents, will still work. “Most revolving doors lose this crucial safety addition in the event of a power outage,” confirmed Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX UK Ltd. “The 5201 harnesses the energy created by the door being manually spun and uses it to power the brake mechanism.”

For a comprehensive solution, a TORMAX 1201 automatic swing door was installed to one side of the revolving door.

Outcome

“A TORMAX revolving entrance combines timeless elegance with a technologically advanced door drive, that delivers ongoing reliability long into the future,” said Roberts. “The convenience of a swing pass door ensures a warm welcome for all visitors, including wheelchair users for example, or those with bulky suitcases.
