Adding a touch of elegance to the spacious changing facilities at Colets Health and Fitness Club, TORMAX has supplied and installed two sets of smoked-glass automatic sliding doors, providing easy access between the wet and dry areas. Driven by reliable TORMAX iMotion 2202 operators that benefit from exceptionally quiet door leaf movements, thanks to the vibration-absorbent mountings of the guide rails, the new bi-parting doors enhance the luxurious atmosphere of this prestigious Greater London health club.
Set in fifteen acres of beautiful grounds in the heart of Thames Ditton, Colets is an independent health club that operates entirely on a not-for-profit basis. With all available revenue being re-invested back into the facilities, the Club has grown considerably since it first opened in 1977, with members now enjoying the benefits of a 25m swimming pool, as well as a large gym, saunas, exercise studios and an extensive spa. It is also home to one of the leading squash clubs in the country.
As part of an extensive upgrade to a number of areas undertaken by CBES Ltd, the Club recently finished a complete refurbishment of the ladies/family changing rooms, with work planned for the men’s area in early 2016. Reflecting the high quality of the new interior décor, the TORMAX automatic sliding doors help imbue a feeling of decadence whilst also being a practical solution.
The sophisticated smoked-glass enhances privacy for members, whilst creating a sleek, contemporary look. Housed in a slender casing with an installation height of just 100mm, the TORMAX iMotion 2202 operators are sufficiently slim not to affect the minimalist aesthetics of the doors. Combining reliable AC motor technology with a state-of-the-art microprocessor control system, a long working life is ensured and downtime for maintenance kept to an absolute minimum.
“Designed at our HQ in Switzerland, the iMotion range of door drives offers incomparable reliability,” confirms Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX UK. “They are unique in that the motors don’t have any parts that can wear out, such as gears and brushes, and this makes a significant impact on their working life span.”
