Compact Automatic Entrance for Hospice Refurbishment

TORMAX United Kingdom Ltd

Nightingale House, a charitably run palliative care facility in Wrexham, has recently completed phase one of a significant upgrade. Improving accessibility, the main entrance now benefits from a double set of automatic folding doors from TORMAX, helping maintain the ambient temperature of the reception area by creating an internal lobby. With limited available space, the TORMAX folding door was the ideal solution with the four-leaf folding principle reducing the swivel range to just half that of a conventional two-leaf swing door. Requiring a minimum built-in width of just 1060-2260mm, the doors still offer a generous opening width.
