Case Studies – Racing Victoria
Looking to upgrade the existing main entrance curved sliding door entrance to its Flemington headquarters, Racing Victoria approached record Automatic Doors to offer advice and potential automatic door solutions. The least disruptive of those solutions was to remove the existing door and replace with a new curved sliding door entrance of the same height and diameter, so as to avoid any changes being required to the surrounding glazing or floor finishes.
A submission with various cost options was submitted with Racing Victoria choosing a custom extended canopy fascia to allow the mounting of activation and safety sensors to the underside of the canopy, rather than on the curved front of the canopy, as well as a natural anodised cladding finish and grey tinted glass to match the existing facade, sourced from local suppliers.
To make the entrance as transparent as possible frameless curved glass door wings were used with slimline profile entry posts, only necessary for the mounted of push buttons, card readers and key switches.
Disruption to the building operations and occupants was minimised by record tradesman commencing the site works on Friday afternoon, working extended hours over the weekend and completing the works on the Monday.
