Bauporte Design Entrances BV is proud to announce the completion of a unique revolving door with a 6.2m turning height for the Kaupthing Bank in Reykjavík, Iceland.
The brief from T-Ark, the in-house architect for the bank, was to design an impressive entrance that would withstand the rigours of a sea-front location subjected to high winds and a corrosive environment.
The fully automatic CFV Royal Full Vision revolving door has a diameter of 3200mm and a turning height of 6200mm. The door features a glass roof, fully glazed walls with integrated LED lighting and stainless steel framing for strength and transparency. An automatic sliding door can be used to close off the opening out of hours and high powered heaters integrated into the floor ensure any cold air entering while the door rotates, is heated before it enters the building.
Bauporte Doors UK General Manager, David Bunkall commented, “This latest addition to our list of impressive installations demonstrates what makes Bauporte different; listening to our client’s needs and coming up with a unique solution.”
Further details and images of this installation can be found on the Bauporte website.
