Case Studies – Northpoint (Eat Street Entry), North Sydney
The redevelopment of Northpoint Tower, originally constructed in 1977 in the heart of North Sydney was officially opened in March 2018 with the centre featuring a new boutique hotel, Woolworths supermarket, food court, specialty shops and the existing commercial office tower at 100 Miller Street.
record Automatic Doors was engaged to supply twelve automatic sliding door systems to all main entrances, as well as a Fullview Series revolving door to the commercial tower entrance. To maximise the clear opening width of many of these entrances record’s TSA 20 and TSA 22 telescopic sliding door operators were used, with the small height of the record operators, smooth operation and large weight capacity of the track and drive system, appealing features.
The largest sliding door entrance in the complex is the food court entry, “Eat Street” off the Pacific Hwy, with two synchronised single sliding TSA 22 telescopic operators used due to the longer track and door leaf weights. With a clear opening width of 6000mm and height of 2800mm, each frameless glass door panel weighs 160kg and due to the larger width a full recessed guide channel in the floor was designed and installed by record to provide greater door security and performance, particularly in higher wind loads.
