Record Automated Doors was recently awarded the contract for the feature glazing and automatic door package by Bovis Lend Lease at the latest 5 Star Green Star landmark building on George Street in Sydney.
The building combines a 36 storey commercial office tower that features an imposing frameless glass entry lobby, with a redeveloped Mid City Centre retail precinct.
The George Street entrance to the commercial tower features an 18m high and 12m wide podium screen that is hung from a steel truss at the head and supported by a unique design of vertical 20mm stainless steel tension rods and horizontal clad steel UBs.
Two striking Record Automated Doors Crystal Series revolving doors were installed in the main entrance. The revolving doors feature mirror stainless steel cladding, along with two frameless glass pivot doors and associated glazing. The 3 wing revolving doors measure 3200mm in diameter and 3000mm high with mirror stainless steel cladding to the door support portal.
The glass is supported off spider fittings fixed to the underside of this portal, and the drive motor is mounted to the underside of the suspended concrete slab. This unique revolving door was fully Australian made and manufactured in AGP’s Huntingwood factory.
