Tormax installs bi-parting automatic sliding doors at golf club

Creating an impressive entrance to the new retail and performance centre at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Tormax was contracted by Feltham Construction to manufacture and install a stylish and contemporary set of bi-parting automatic sliding doors. Powered by the Tormax iMotion 2202 door operator, smooth opening is said to be assured, along with minimum ongoing maintenance requirements.

Designed by architects MEB Design, the £1m development of a new retail experience, performance centre, administrative offices as well as an attractive terrace with five-hole putting green overlooking the 18th hole is a high quality, sustainable solution that will serve the club for many years to come.

With 95% of the components of the iMotion range of door operators being recyclable, Tormax was able to offer the green credentials required for the Golf Club development. Elegant and unobtrusive, the iMotion 2202 is housed in a slim casing measuring just 100mm high, making it the obvious choice for a modern and sophisticated entrance such as this. In addition, door movements are particularly quiet and smooth, thanks to vibration-absorbent mountings on the guide rails, creating a relaxing ambience for browsing members.

Furthermore, the iMotion 2202 combines unique AC motor technology with a microprocessor control system, guaranteeing permanent monitoring of door leaf movements. The system then automatically adjusts in response to external factors, such as a build-up of dirt on the floor, maximising performance at all times. Reflecting changes in weather or foot traffic levels, staff can quickly adapt door opening and closing speeds and hold-open times, minimising heat-loss from the building at all times.

“The stunning new building has been extremely well-received by both members and visitors,” commented Daniel Blesovsky, golf manager at the club. “The automatic entrance reflects the high quality of our facilities, giving everyone a great welcome into the shop, where they can get top quality advice and also improve their game on our state-of-the-art simulator.”
