DORMA ‘Child Friendly’ Installation Makes The Grade

DORMA ES200 sliding door operators and complementary fixed glass screenwork have been installed at the main entrance of The Perse School in Cambridge, one of the leading educational establishments in the area.

With approximately 750 pupils, the provision of safe and reliable access and egress at this secondary school was vital. The pedigree of the ES200 made it a natural choice for this type of high-traffic environment, and the accompanying fixed glass screenwork has been designed to provide additional safety. The screens effectively provide a recess for the doors when they are activated to open, ensuring that no one is at risk of a fall by leaning against the encroaching end of the doors.

Ruth Scally, Architect, at Surveyors and Architects Pleasance Hookham & Nix comments: “We were advised that the DORMA products would meet all the required technical specifications and they are aesthetically designed too, but what really impressed us was the child friendly installation. This was a critical requirement as far as we were concerned in such a demanding environment. DORMA and the contractor, T Butler & Son (Sawston) Ltd, were very accommodating and completed the project in a very tight timeframe during the school holidays”.

The innovative ES200 is designed to meet the requirements of every automatic sliding door application. A microprocessor automatically controls the opening and closing speeds of the door to ensure the highest possible levels of safety. Thanks to the new programming functions, installation, set-up and maintenance are simpler and faster.

The exceptional operating performance of the ES200 is matched by its stylish, clean design. Completed with perforated end caps, the resulting sophisticated appearance complements any interior design scheme.
