Welcoming customers to the recently refurbished, Best Western Hotel in Brome, TORMAX was contracted to install an automatic sliding door system to the main entrance. Delivering a solution that subtly blends with the building, the discrete sliding door is powered by the in-house designed, TORMAX Win Drive 2201 door drive. With an exceptionally slim profile, the Win Drive has a long-standing reputation for reliability worldwide and an exceptional service life can be expected.
A characterful three star hotel on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, the Brome Best Western has been converted from a 16th century coaching inn and is set in 4 acres of countryside, offering visitors a peaceful base from which to explore the locality. Tastefully re-vamped, the hotel successfully brings the charm of the original building back to life. Best Western is largest group of independently owned and managed hotels in the world.
“We wanted to offer visitors the upmarket welcome of an automatic entrance but needed to counter this with consideration for the historic nature of the building,” explains Brian Keane, MD for Cameron Ventures Group, owners of Best Western Brome Grange.
The result of careful research at the TORMAX HQ in Switzerland, the Win Drive 2201 automatic sliding door operator is capable of smoothly opening either a single-leaf sliding door of up to 120kg or a double set of doors weighing 100kg per leaf. Although only measuring just 142mm x 100mm the Win Drive can still offer an impressive opening width of up to 2000mm clear pass through space.
Simple two-key programming makes the door easy for all members of staff to operate efficiently, ensuring the ambient temperature of the Hotel reception is maintained at all times, even in inclement weather.
