Creating an entrance with clean lines and a minimalist vibe, the new flagship wagamama restaurant at Battersea Power Station welcomes guests with a double set of TORMAX automatic swing doors that are powered by the iMotion 1302.KI operator.
Concealed in the door lintel, the 1302.KI generates its force exactly over the door axis for maximum efficiency. With no visible linkage between the operator and the door leaf, discreet and invisible automation can easily be achieved for any internal single or double leaf swing door.
“TORMAX worked closely with Permasteelisa on a number of automatic entrances at the Battersea Power Station development and we are delighted to have our lintel-integrated operator showcased in such a prestigious location,” comments Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX UK Ltd.
“Barrier-free construction is something that is demanded in almost all locations today, with automatic swing doors increasing both security and ease of access for users. Architects and specifiers who do not want to compromise on aesthetics can choose from either our invisible iMotion 1401 underfloor operator or the iMotion 1302.KI lintel-concealed door drive.”
Featuring all of the benefits of the in-house designed iMotion range of door drives, the 1302.KI delivers dynamic motion for a single door leaf weight of up to 125kg. Coupled with whisper-quiet operation and user-friendly controls this is a simple yet powerful door automation solution that delivers on reliability and maintenance-free operation.
With a high torque motor, all iMotion operators benefit from a unique design whereby there are none of the moving parts that usually wear out, such as gears and brushes, giving almost indefinite life-expectancy.
Assuring user safety, the 1302.KI features special finger protection profiles whilst functionality can be extended with the addition of panic escape devices, extra sensors or badge access, for example.
All TORMAX iMotion operators can also be simply incorporated into a modern building management system.
