Case Studies – 100 Mount Street, North Sydney
For the main entrance to 100 Mount Street North Sydney, designed by Architectus in association with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, two record Diamond Series revolving doors were selected to complement the full height frameless glass assemblies of this striking 8 metre high lobby design.
These frameless glass doors are 3600mm diameter and 2850mm high with low iron glazing used to maximise clarity. To match the finish of the transom structure and column claddings, a custom bead blasted stainless steel finish was used for the door rails, glass edge trims and even the floor separation ring of the revolving doors.
The drive motors are mounted in floor pits formed in the concrete slab during construction, accessible via full removable floor mats recessed within. The door control devices are mounted on freestanding stainless steel bollards, also used by the controls for the adjacent DDA swing doors, powered by record C 127 floor mounted automatic door operators.
