The Broadway Benefits from Invisible Access Automation

The Broadway is a mixed-use development in Westminster, London. Contributing to the beautifully presented interior, TORMAX was contracted by Focchi Ltd to deliver invisible automation to over forty swing door entrances, concealing their advanced iMotion 1401 operator into the floor space below each door.

“Where aesthetics is a high priority, such as at The Broadway, our invisible automation for swing doors helps maintain clean and contemporary lines within a room,” said Simon Roberts, managing director for TORMAX UK Ltd. “In addition to our underfloor operator, we offer a door drive that can be concealed within the lintel above the door.”

Making it entirely practicable to position the door drives out of sight, the iMotion motor is uniquely designed without any of the parts that regularly wear out, requiring only minimal servicing and maintenance.

Working with main contractor Multiplex and development manager Northacre, the architects, Squire & Partners, provided the total design for The Broadway, encompassing the masterplan, architecture and interiors to achieve a unified schemed that creates a unique sense of place.

The six buildings range from 14 to 19 storeys in height and incorporate 268 residential apartments, extensive premium office space, as well as 25,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space.  Amenities include a 24hr concierge, gym, pool, spa and treatment rooms, a screening room, library, and games room, all establishing The Broadway as a significant new Westminster destination.

Focchi Group oversaw the entire façade package for the development and TORMAX, with over 60 years expertise in entrance system design, manufacture, installation and maintenance, was well placed to deliver the invisible door automation.

The iMotion range of automatic door operators has been developed in-house, at the TORMAX HQ in Switzerland, and includes solutions for sliding, folding, revolving and swing doors.

“The Broadway showcases the iMotion 1401 underfloor operator in a wide variety of locations,” comments Roberts. “Many of the retail units benefit from TORMAX automated swing doors, with operators being installed elsewhere, from in the residential areas right through to the cycle store. “
