Overview

OAG Ltd specified TORMAX UK to deliver invisible door automation by installing its iMotion 1401 underfloor operator to a swing door on a Grade II listed building within the Woolwich Works development, Greenwich. Featuring elegantly arched brickwork, a row of three swing doors give entry into one of the creative community spaces, with one door providing clear and easy access for everyone, thanks to the TORMAX automatic door drive.

Product used

The iMotion 1401 is ideally suited to period properties where an externally situated operator would detract from the aesthetics of the building. Concealed in a steel box situated in the floorspace below the door, the Swiss-engineered motor has been precision-designed for a long life span and exceptional reliability, featuring none of the working parts that generally need replacing, such as gears or brushes.

Comments

“We have been delighted to be involved on this inspirational project which has so creatively renovated the period properties,” comments Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX.

“Utilising an invisible method of automating the swing door, such as with an iMotion 1401 operator, is the best solution to ensure the facilities are accessible to all members of the community, without negatively impacting the façade of the heritage building.”

About the site

Set in five heritage industrial buildings on the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich Works is London’s newest creative district and provides flexible performance and event spaces, rehearsal studios, rooms for community events and celebrations, bars, and a café. Run by the Woolwich Creative District Trust, an independent registered charity, the mission for the project is ‘to offer hope and opportunity by enabling people to realise their creative potential'.
