Products used TORMAX 2201 automatic sliding door operator
 
 

A privately owned golf club, Thonock Park, in Lincolnshire, has recently completed an extensive refurbishment to the main building. Updating the front entrance, TORMAX worked closely with Window Concepts to deliver fully automatic access into the main reception via a contemporary, all-glass storm lobby. Comprising of inner and outer sliding doors that operate in tandem, heat-loss from the building is significantly reduced during wet and windy days.

The entire re-fit had to be completed to a very tight timescale, whilst the club remained open. With this in mind, TORMAX recommended powering the doors with their reliable 2201 door operators, which benefit from a patented component fasting mechanism, making them extremely quick and easy to install.

“There really was no margin for error in this project,” comments Joe Allmond, Contracts Manager for main contractor, Gelder Group. “In addition to the storm lobby, we also refurbished the reception area, ground and first floors. The newly refitted club was ready in time for the busy winter events calendar with the new entrance providing a smart yet highly functional access solution.”

TORMAX UK Ltd is a whole owned subsidiary of the Swiss firm, Landert Group AG, which has specialised in the worldwide design and manufacture of cutting-edge door automation solutions for over 90yrs. The in-house developed TORMAX 2201 operator has proven its reliability and performance in busy locations across the globe.

Measuring just 142mm x 100mm, the TORMAX 2201 operator is surprisingly compact, delivering an unobtrusive and aesthetic solution for the all-glass entrance at Thonock Park. However, it is still a powerful operator capable of driving either a single-leaf door of up to 120kg or a double set of doors weighing 100kg per leaf, providing an impressive pass-through space of up to 2000mm.

“The new storm lobby helps maintain the ambient temperature of the reception area,” said Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “Using simple 2-key programming, staff can quickly adapt door opening and closing speeds to reflect the volume of foot traffic and weather conditions.”
