Case Studies – Commonwealth Bank Place, Sydney
The new Darling Walk precinct combines a commercial, retail and leisure space with new pedestrian links between Darling Harbour and the city. As the new headquarters for the Commonwealth Bank, the North and South buildings feature automatic revolving, sliding and swing doors by record Automatic Doors.
For the main entry to each lobby a 4000mm diameter Diamond Series revolving door was installed. The Diamond Series is record's most frameless glass revolving door, with the entire door structure supported only by glass with the drive motor mounted to the underside of the concrete slab. The large diameter of these doors allows for large groups of people to enter and leave the door at the same time.
For the Level 1 entry on the North building, a 2400mm diameter Fullview Series revolving door was installed to provide an alternate access point into the building, whilst still ensuring an air locked facade.
To provide the necessary disabled access and emergency egress from the lobbies, frameless glass swing doors were integrated into the glass assemblies, with concealed DFA 127 automatic swing door operators and electric locking.
