Overview

The award-winning MK Gallery brings world-class exhibitions and events, together with pioneering learning and engagement programmes, to the heart of Milton Keynes. Ensuring this vibrant community facility is accessible to all, TORMAX was contracted by B&K Building Services Ltd to install automatic doors throughout the contemporary new extension.

MK Gallery is an ‘architectural gem’, designed by renowned architects 6a, in collaboration with artists Gareth Jones and Nils Norman and is an iconic feature of the city's skyline. The Gallery presents significant exhibitions of contemporary and historic art and design, alongside extensive public programmes.

Project details

Access to the popular café and extensive gallery spaces is simplified with the installation of TORMAX iMotion 1301 heavy-duty swing doors, ensuring free-flowing pedestrian traffic, even during busy events.

A TORMAX iMotion 2302 automatic single sliding door creates a welcoming main entrance.

Ensuring trouble-free operation and maximising the working life of the doors, MK Gallery has an annual maintenance contract with the in-house trained team of TORMAX service engineers.

The Swiss-designed TORMAX range of iMotion automatic door operators incorporate a high torque synchronous motor that features none of the working parts that usually wear out, such as gears and brushes, making them one of the most durable and reliable on the market today.

Both the iMotion 2302 and 1301 door drives are sustainable solutions, being precision engineered to minimise energy consumption during normal operation whilst heat loss from the main entrance is minimised thanks to a combination of rapid reaction sensors and powerful opening and closing speeds. The operators themselves are manufactured using 95% recyclable materials.

Comment

“A planned maintenance contract can cut remedial call out rates for automatic doors by up to 80%”, explains Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “Schedule maintenance throughout the year ensures minor repairs are quickly resolved before they cause long-term damage. Our UK-wide team of engineers are trained to work on most automatic entrance systems and maintain a well-stocked van for on-the-job repairs.”
