Case Study by Elite Entrance Systems, a record Diamond Partner

The Quadram Centre is a state-of-the-art food and health research and endoscopy centre that develops solutions to worldwide challenges in food-related disease and human health. 

The Brief

To shield the bi-parting swing doors for disabled access, which are installed at the main entrance. Whilst the swing doors overlook fields providing a scenic outlook they, unfortunately, don't protect the reception area from the weather, resulting in a cold, draughty environment for both staff and visitors.

The Solution

Elite Entrance Systems, designed and built an internal lobby to protect the main entrance from harsh winds and provide an ambient temperature at all times. Complete with an STA 20 Sliding Door to create a hassle-free opening and ensure the safe, efficient flow of large numbers of people, the reception area has now been transformed.

In order to avoid disruption to the Institute, Elite's engineers carried out the installation over one weekend, working from 8.00 -19.00 on both days - a total of just 22 hours to complete all works, including inductions, mains power run and fire-alarm re-routing.

Alan Hutchison, Director at Elite Entrance Systems commented "I am extremely proud of our team of engineers, they worked incredibly hard in awful weather conditions to produce a stunning lobby area with an STA 20 sliding door, which fits seamlessly into the overall look of the Institute and creates a warm and welcoming entrance into the reception area".

Case Study by Automatic Access, a record Diamond Partner

HR Owen's new Rolls Royce Showroom recently opened in Mayfair featuring some stunning design features including a door modelled on Rolls Royce's famous Pantheon grille and video illusions to create a new virtual experience for clients, day and night.

The Brief

An innovative installation, Automatic Access, a record Diamond Partner was commissioned to design and install the show-stopping bi-parting polished stainless steel doors, frames and side screen. 

The Solution  

Working in conjunction with McLaren Glazing London Ltd, Automatic Access chose record's special Heavy Duty DUO Motor STA 22/200 door operators, built in Switzerland, to operate the door leaves, as no other electric mechanical operator can handle these unusually heavy door leaves which weigh 180kg each.

record's RIC 290 Sensors using microwave and active infrared technology were also chosen, for their ease of installation and outstanding level of safety along with record's AIS 290 Sensors to provide secondary protection to clients using the main entrance. 

Trevor Allsop, Director at Automatic Access commented, "The weight and strength of the doors are perfect for a prestigious car showroom, where security is imperative. record's STA 22/200 door operator was the ideal choice to automated these doors, as not only is it exceptionally strong, sturdy and reliable, it is also exceptionally quiet in operation, which given the size of the doors is impressive. The inclusion of record sensors too gives peace of mind that the doors will open safely at all times".
