TORMAX Takes Swing Door Automation to a New Level

29 Jun 2015

With product development always a top priority, TORMAX is launching two new swing door operators, delivering even greater functionality and flexibility and allowing the cost-effective installation of an automatic entrance in almost any location.  Primarily for automating internal doors, the TORMAX 1102 operator replaces the 1101 and benefits from a complete re-design that significantly improves performance, whilst the 1201 is even more powerful making it suitable for external entrance applications.  As with all TORMAX door drives, the new operators have been designed to deliver outstanding reliability.

The new drives can be used in power-assisted (power assisted manual door opening), low-energy (without safety features) and full-power applications (with safety features) for automating external and internal doors, fire exits and escape routes, and doors with disabled access. Single-leaf designs right through to four-leaf door systems (for example, an air lock with two double swing doors) can be automated using these drives, and it is even possible to automate swing doors that measure from 0.7 to 1.4 m wide and weigh up to 250 kg.  Both drives have an installation height of just 85 mm and a length of 640 mm. The anodized aluminium casing with grey side plates provides an unobtrusive and elegant appearance.

The TORMAX 1102 and 1201 have the added advantage of being modular by design.  This contributes to greater cost efficiency with the customer only having to pay for exactly what they need at that time.  As requirements change, operators can easily be upgraded with additional functions, such as the Multi Door Module that allows communication between multiple drives and also links to building management systems.

Recognised as a market leader, TORMAX has over 60 years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of automatic entrance systems.  Their wide range of technologically advanced door operators ensures there is a solution suitable for almost any almost any location.
