Case Studies – Dangrove Art Storage Facility
Dangrove is a specialised art storage and operations facility, purpose built for the White Rabbit Gallery, owners of one the worlds most impressive private collections of contemporary Chinese art. Designed by Tzannes and delivered by Infinity Constructions, the imposing space is a departure from traditional warehouse design, with the ability to not only store and display artwork in climate controlled conditions, but also host private functions.
record Automatic Doors was engaged to supply and install three C 127 in floor mounted automatic swing door operators to the main ground floor entry as well as to pivot doors in the Level 1 space. With polished concrete floors throughout, special care was required to set out and install the stainless steel floor box enclosures prior to the concrete pours. Stainless steel cover plates were used for operator access, complementing the stark design aesthetic.
For one of the automatic swing doors, installed next to a series of frameless manual doors, specially designed pivot patch plates were manufactured to house the pivot strap of the C 127 in the most frameless design possible, negating the requirement for full length bottom rails.
