Although only a few years old, the existing large timber framed swing doors to the north and south entries of the ResMed commercial office building in Sydney’s Norwest Business Park were considered too impractical.

A suitable revolving door was required that could maintain an airlock into the building, while still providing emergency egress and bulky goods access to the large internal space.

The Duotour Series revolving door from Record Automated Doors was selected as a replacement as they offer the unique advantage of being able to convert from a revolving door, to a full time automatic sliding door at the turn of a key.

The building manager now has the option to select between maintaining an airlock during inclement weather and automatic sliding doors during pleasant weather, or when large traffic flows require quick egress from the building.

Record Automated Doors scope of works included the removal of the existing timber doors and fixed glazing, as well as the necessary flooring works to accommodate the new revolving doors. The adjacent swing door and beautiful timber portal frame was maintained.
