Busy rural GPs surgery gets an update….

Busy rural GPs surgery gets an update – Great Witley Surgery, Worcestershire

Located in the heart of West Worcestershire near the rolling hills of Abberley, this busy surgery needed a very functional door with easy and safe access to the hundreds of patients who use this building every day.

Originally a wooden swing door, as part of a modernisation of the main entrance to the surgery we supplied and installed two single automatic sliding doors to form a lobby, which not only looks great in powder coated white but is also very functional with improved access for all.

Great Witley Surgery, Worcestershire – two Single Automatic Sliding Doors with lobby

In a public building environment, it is important that our door installations comply with all British and European standards in design and access requirements.

Stainless steel push pads are mounted on the inside to activate the doors rather than sensors which prevents the doors being accidentally triggered by patients while in the waiting room.

The main entrance as approached opens in a smooth sliding motion with the sliding door moving behind a fixed glazed screen.

Buckinghamshire County Council

Local Authority installation goes to plan…

As part of a refit for Buckinghamshire County Council, NG Automatics supplied and installed two new sliding door entrances at Aylesbury Library and Buckinghamshire Centre for Services.

The client requested frameless door leaves to provide a modern and elegant door entrance with a virtually transparent uninterrupted glass view as approached. An all glass design removes the requirement for more bulky aluminium frame sections which is found on standard door packages.

 Buckingham Centre for Services, Aylesbury

Framed and Frameless design in One

Buckingham Centre for ServicesBuckinghamshire Centre for Services provides a focal point for thousands of residents providing local services such as a customer service centre, a library and an adult/ family learning facility. So our briefing was to provide a modern entrance system, with robust design in a public building environment, providing safe access for all complying with all British and European standards in design and access.

The product:    Fully automatic frameless bi-part sliding door package with 12mm toughened armour plate glass door leaves only and standard 45mm framework to side screens and fanlight.

This fully automated bi-part sliding door package has also been designed with frameless door leaves giving a virtually transparent uninterrupted glass view along with an outer perimeter aluminium frame. In this door environment with heavy public usage, it is imperative that the door is functional with great visibility which this door provides.

Keele University

Keele University Library – ‘Innovation in progress….’ 

Keele University Library NG Automatics have recently been involved with a major refurbishment at Keele University supplying and installing a bi-part automatic sliding door operator to an all glass entrance. Both sides of the door have 100mm radio transmitted stainless steel push pads to enable people to access the library.

Aesthetically, installing the operator directly to glass removes the need to have a more standard bulky aluminium header section giving the visual appearance of a larger and more open glass door section. Fixing in this way is a first for NG Automatics, this design fits in well not only at Keele University Library but also in modern office environments or retail spaces where a sleek glass design is preferred giving the appearance of a floating door.

Patented technology was used for fixing the operator through the glass unit providing a solution for the client at Keele University who requested this design to fit in with their aspirations for a more open plan environment. The installation is a highly specialist procedure with the glass pre formed using state of the art technology to provide a precisely cut hole through 12mm thick toughened glass units, ready to accept CNC precision made stainless steel fixing brackets. These are installed on site by our engineers through the glass and are designed so that they can carry the entire weight of the operator. The number of brackets differ depending on the width of the door opening.

We are pleased to announce that this design can now be offered to suit the needs of our clients in projects of similar type, so please give us a call.

Crown Post Office Program

Crown Post Office Refurbishment Program

Hampstead Post Office LondonNG Automatics is coming to a close with a nationwide program of works for the Crown Post Offices where we have completed around 100 branches in 8 months, installing, automatic swing door packages, automatic sliding door packages, automatic telescopic packages, along with complete aluminium shop fronts.

One of the larger projects for the Crown post office is Hampstead, London where we completed a fully glazed aluminium shop front incorporating an automatic swing door package and aluminium panels over head. The length of this High Street branch was 18 meters long x 4 metres high.

This was a challenging project as the existing red post box was left insitu which we worked around. The glass consisted of a security laminated glazing system with panels made of a Reynabond and plywood finish.  A heavy duty automatic swing door system was used with activation sensors externally and internally. Aluminium barrier rails to protect the doors when opening to stop pedestrians walking into the path of doors, fully monitored safety sensors both sides of the door leaves to comply to the directive EN16005 and the door leaves where manufactured with a round backed anti finger trap stile, again to protect the back of the doors if anybody tried to place their fingers in this area.

The United Kingdom was spilt into different regions to ensure a smooth transition of works. We have had very high praise from the contractors we worked with for delivering the doors on time at every branch and getting each installation completed on the day with no return journeys required. In addition, all works were completed during the evenings in the week or over a weekend so as not to disrupt any trading hours with the Crown Post Offices. Following this success, we look forward to continuing our work with these contractors and many more in the future.

John Beddoes School

John Beddoes School, Presteigne

John Beddoes School, PresteigneNG Automatics and Powys County Council have been involved with many projects stemming over 16 years, one of the most recent projects was at John Beddoes School in Presteigne where we installed 2 automatic bi-part sliding door packages to form a lobby.

This consisted of the automatic sliding aluminium door package to have two colours on the aluminium screens and doors, instead of one colour which is more traditional. When forming the lobby at John Beddoes School, for emergency exit Powys County Council asked us to manufacture the doors and screens with a full breakout facility, allowing the sliding door leaves to be manually opened outwards in case of an emergency rather the more usual standard monitored battery pack which will hold the doors open for up to 40 minutes before re-charging itself.

For safety the automatic sliding doors had Optex OA- Axis presence T side screen safety sensors and activation was by Optex OA- Axis T monitored active infra red safety sensors. Fully conforming to BS 7036.

David Austin Roses

David Austin Roses, Albrighton, near Wolverhampton

NG Automatics were involved in the refurbishment of the head offices at the famous “David Austin Roses” based in Albrighton, in the Midlands. On this project we installed three brand new bi-part automatic sliding door packages.

David Austin Roses Glass Automatic Sliding DoorsThe photo left shows one of our automatic aluminium all glass door packages in the new shop area. We had an external 100mm x 45mm aluminium frame for support. The slimline screens and doors were then fixed to this outer frame. As seen in the picture the door leaves are glass with a painted aluminium top and bottom rail. Optex OA Axis T monitored active/safety sensors were fitted in the threshold area to enter and exit the building with Optex OA presence T safety sensors used to protecting the path of the door as it slides over the side screen.

Merthyr Tydfil Learning Quarter

Merthyr Tydfil University – Merthyr Learning Quarter

Single Telescopic Sliding Door, Merthyr Learning Quarter, Merthyr TydfillNG Automatics supplied and installed several phases of this project at Merthyr Tydfil University, South Wales. Working with a well established company in the South West we supplied and installed aluminium screens with acoustic glazing, one elevation was 8.5 meters long x 3.1 meters high which also incorporated 2 automatic bi-parting sliding door packages again with acoustic glass.

Safety on these doors were Optex Presence T fully monitored side screen sensors which protect the area behind the doors as they slide open. Also within the threshold area we installed Optex OA Axis T monitored active infra red safety sensors which activate the doors on approach as well as preventing the doors from closing should some be standing in the door way. Because of the construction and location of the automatic telescopic door elevation, which incorporated aluminium acoustic glazed screens and panels, 2.6 meters wide x 3.8 meters high, a fully glazed aluminium barrier rail was installed instead of side screen safety sensors. This was handmade at a non standard height of 1500mm to meet with current British Standards. As well as the automatic doors mentioned in the above areas, on the ground floor in the main entrance of the Merthyr Tydfil Learning Quarter, we supplied and installed an automatic swing door package which enables both disabled and able bodied people to have easier access in and out of the building.

The Merthyr Tydfil Learning Quarter project, cost a total of £30 million, and the client was highly delighted with the efficiency and abilities displayed by N G Automatics. Since this project at Merthyr University we have completed numerous other projects with this client and look forward to many more years of continued business.
