Axis Open Doors at Waitrose

18 Feb 2015
Case study

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems have installed a number of doors in the transformed Waitrose Food & Home store in the centre of Bath

Now nearly three times it’s original size, the 40,000 square foot store offers a host of new features including a customer café. There are also 6,500 new product lines including John Lewis products in the new Home section and new fish, meat, delicatessen and cheese counters. 119 extra jobs have been created with this £10 million investment that means Waitrose has expanded to fill the entire Podium Shopping Centre.

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems fitted two pairs of swing doors at the main entrance, a pair of bipart sliding doors at the outer entrance giving access into the car park and another pair at the inner entrance. The rear entrance to the store was fitted with a pair of bipart sliding doors on the outer entrance but two pairs of swing doors at the inner entrance that leads directly into the Home section of the store. These automatic doors were supplemented by a manual swing door to the café and Axis also supplied a number of roller shutters.

Axis MD Rob Brunero said “We were delighted to be involved with this impressive project. Everything went very smoothly and we are confident their new doors will give Waitrose many years of trouble free service. ”
