Recently completed, the £9m Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security, located in Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone, was designed by Associated Architects and built by Speller Metcalfe. TORMAX was contracted to the project by Aluminium Sashes to deliver a contemporary four-wing automatic revolving door to the main entrance.
Reliability and whisper-quiet operation is assured thanks to the world-class TORMAX 5201 door drive which combines a powerful, high-torque motor with impeccable design credentials to minimise maintenance requirements and ensure a long working life. With a build-in height of just 140mm, the slim 5201 allows for a shallow canopy compartment allowing a truly minimalist entrance solution to be created.
Skylon Park is the only Enterprise Zone in the country that focuses on the defence and security sector, with the cyber security centre being a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership.
The 2,000 square metre building allows businesses to benefit from the University’s networks and research expertise, enabling them to use specialist training rooms and laboratory spaces to tackle the growing threat of cyber-attacks.
“An automatic revolving door allows for a smooth, free-flow of pedestrians whilst also contributing to a low carbon footprint by isolating the interior atmosphere of the building from the external elements, creating a draught-free solution” comments Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX.
Further improving energy efficiency, system specific data is automatically captured, and door operation adapted to counter the impact of wind levels, or a build-up of dirt for example, ensuring the door continues to revolve with optimum performance.
Technologically advanced sensors are integrated within the system, ensuring uncompromising personal safety for every user.
A world-leader, TORMAX has over 70 years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of sophisticated automatic entrances, including sliding, folding and revolving door systems.
