Record Doors supplied and installed their Diamond Series glass roof revolving doors across the three commercial towers of Barangaroo South in Sydney.

Record Automatic Doors, and the Australian door company they acquired in 2014, AGP Door Systems, have established a reputation over the last 25 years in Australia for pushing the boundaries of revolving door design to meet the architectural requirements of their clients and provide impressive entrance systems for commercial buildings.

For the installation at the Barangaroo South project, significant planning was invested during the design and development process to ensure the size of the main entry revolving doors would be able to accommodate the pedestrian traffic flows from the estimated 23,000 office workers expected to use the three towers. A traffic study undertaken at the time concluded that doors of 4000mm diameter would be required to allow large groups of people to use these entrances quickly and safely.

During the installation at International Towers 3, the concept of bigger revolving doors was taken a step further. For the south lobby entrance with its surrounding podium glazing and awning, revolving doors of a much greater height were required. Record supplied their Diamond glass roof revolving doors measuring 4000mm diameter x 3900mm high, a size previously unheard of in a frameless glass revolving door. The result is an airlock entrance that combines a bold and imposing presence with an appearance that complements the stylings of the lobby façade and adjacent features.

Revolving doors maintain an airlock and reduce the impact on a building’s HVAC system; however, these doors are often mistakenly perceived as a nuisance and ignored in favour of swing doors. Record Doors can provide expert advice and assistance in incorporating a revolving door into your foyer entrance.

Record’s world-leading range of Australian manufactured revolving doors has been designed with quality in mind. The doors are architecturally styled without the rubber seals, exposed edges or visible fixings of alternatives. Record doors complement building facades, add gravitas to the entrance, and create a striking first impression.
