Aquatics Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has undergone a significant transformation since the London 2012 Olympics with the iconic Aquatics Centre ready to provide world-class facilities for both elite athletes and the local communities. For the reliable and efficient closing of doors throughout the venue, high quality door controls and floor springs from DORMA will offer a gold medal experience for visitors each and every day.
Designed by award winning architect Zaha Hadid and a focal point of the 2012 Olympic Games, the Aquatics Centre will not only be home to a new Diving High Performance Centre but will also cater for swimmers of all abilities when the wave like building opens its doors to the public.
To match this world class design, high quality door controls from DORMA were specified by London-based architectural ironmongers Yannedis for their compact and elegant design, long term durability and ability to withstand constant heavy use. DORMA floor springs BTS 75 and BTS 80F, door closers TS 71, TS 73 and TS 92 and concealed cam-action door closers ITS 96 proved to be the ideal solution for safe, secure and reliable access.
With the Aquatics Centre set to re-open to the public in March 2014, one of the world’s most stunning public swimming pools will benefit from the specification of DORMA products, reflecting their market leading position and suitability for the most prestigious of projects.
