Revolving door “ticks all the boxes”

AUTOMATIC door specialist TORMAX has completed the installation of a 4-leaf automatic door and swing pass door at Iona House in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

Working with Alliance Electrical Services, TORMAX installed its in-house designed 5201 revolving door operator and 1201 operator that operates the swing pass door.

The 5201 automatic drive allows the door speed to be adapted to reflect external weather conditions and foot traffic levels, which the company claims is highly effective at reducing heat loss and improves energy efficiency.

System specific data is captured and operation is automatically adapted to counter the impact of wind levels, or a build-up of dirt, to ensure the door continues to revolve.

The £300,000 repair, refurbishment and sub-division of Iona House, situated at the John Smith Business Park in Kirkcaldy, was supported by funding from Fife Task Force which was set up in the wake of the closure of Tullis Russell Papermakers.

The office space can accommodate up to 400 staff.

Simon Roberts, managing director at TORMAX commented, “Revolving entrance systems have always been the door of choice for busy locations. Not only do they look smart and help keep foot traffic flowing smoothly but they also have excellent green credentials.

“This combination of an automatic revolving door with swing pass door is suitable for a whole range of different locations including hotels, retail outlets, restaurants as well as office buildings. It ticks all the boxes for accessibility, safety and sustainability.”
