11 Apr Steer door installation at Bristol Academy
Check out our latest case study of an installation of new steel fire exit doors carried out at a local Bristol Academy.
As part of the upgrade of the sports halls, Gemsec were invited to fit some new steel fire exit doors with some specialist hardware. In this instance, double Steeldor door-sets were modified and fitted with Dorma touchbars. With a shallow design and less exposed moving parts, the touchbars sit much closer to the doorleaf than a standard panic bar. They are specifically used in areas where there is a risk of collision or catch hazard such as an indoor sports hall.
In this configuration, the active leaf was fitted with a 3 point bar, while the inactive leaf had a two point version. The result being an impressive 5 point locking door-set that offered both security and style.
