DORMA Finds Home At Iconic Emirates Arena
DORMA’s KTV Automatic Revolving Door and automatic swing door operators have provided the perfect combination of functionality, performance and energy efficiency for the stunning Emirates Arena which is also home to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.
A showpiece for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the 4500 seat Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, forms part of the iconic new £113 million Emirates Arena which is operated by Glasgow Life and also features an 6500 seat sports arena, health spa and a community sports hall. The state-of-the-art venue has been designed by architects 3DReid and built by construction company Sir Robert McAlpine.
With entrances and doors key to achieving energy efficiency, specification of the building’s rear entrance was crucial for both aesthetics and thermal performance. Offering elegance and efficiency – as well the prerequisite of safe access to the arena – the DORMA KTV revolving door fitted the bill.
Revolving doors act as a lobby reducing noise, dirt and drafts. The DORMA KTV automatic revolving door can limit warm air loss and cold air intake – vital on the Velodrome’s exposed site – helping to reduce the building’s energy consumption and costs.
To complete the specification, DORMA ED 100A automatic swing door operators were incorporated into the entrance for use as emergency exits and pass doors in addition to several side exits.
With an innovative range of revolving doors and automatic doors from DORMA, visitors will benefit from proven performance and a high quality user experience throughout this stunning venue, once again demonstrating the company’s product suitability for the most prestigious of projects.
