Access upgrade for Mill Gate shoppers

Aiming to improve accessibility, the Mill Gate shopping centre in Bury is currently replacing many of the automatic entrances with technologically advanced TORMAX operators, improving functionality and standardising systems. 

For example, a recent installation was to the carpark corridor entrance where a TORMAX Windrive 2201 sliding door drive was retrofitted to the existing doors. Incorporating a break-out function, the opening width can easily be increased, making the door fully compliant with fire evacuation legislation and with the added benefit that maintenance and repair vehicles can be manoeuvred into and out of the building.

Ensuring all entrances are regularly serviced, Mill Gate has a Planned Maintenance Contract (PMC) with TORMAX, minimising unexpected down-time and improving life expectancy of the units.

“A PMC is a cost-effective option, especially on sites where multiple automatic entrances are located and which are key to the smooth running of the facility,” said Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX UK. 

“Our team of in-house trained engineers operate a UK-wide network of emergency call out and ongoing maintenance programmes. The team is qualified to service and repair almost any automatic entrance system and, with the back-up of a well-stocked van, many problems can be rectified immediately.”

Delivering exceptional reliability, the Windrive 2201 operator is capable of driving a single door leaf of up to 120kg or a double set of doors weighing up to 100kg per leaf. Tested above the required industry standard of one million cycles, Windrive operators can be found in demanding locations worldwide.
