Case Studies – Stockland Wendouree Shopping Centre
For the main entrance of the $37 million redevelopment of the Stockland Wendouree Shopping Centre, the in house design team at Stockland were keen for a large automatic sliding door entrance to maximise the clear opening space leading into the centre’s casual dining precinct.
record Automatic Doors was able to offer an imposing telescopic bi-parting sliding door entrance, utilising it’s heavy duty TSA 22 operator which is housed within a 200mm high aluminium pelmet.
With a door height of 3350mm and clear passage width of 5900mm, aluminium framed door panels with 11.52mm bandit proof glass were used with door panels weighing in excess of 150kg each (600kg total).
To ensure consistently smooth door operation, even high winds, the leading door wings are supported at the bottom edge by a recessed in-floor track. To provide the building manager with greater flexibility to reduce the clear opening width during cold and windy weather conditions a summer/winter mode setting was also provided with activation via a locally mounted key switch.
