Airport Hotel is Soaring Success
GEZE UK has helped the Novotel London Heathrow Airport T1 T2 and T3 Hotel prepare for ‘take off’ with a range of products.
Two sets of GEZE Manual Sliding Wall (MSW) systems – consisting of a total of nine glazed panels with two pass doors – were installed.
The first set of six panels has an overall screen size of 5010mm, whilst the second has three panels and an overall screen size of 3294mm demonstrating the bespoke nature of the MSW system both are 2400mm in height. Each panel locks into the next one via a floor locking device, which is completely hidden from view. A recessed roller track is fitted above to further enhance the ‘sleek’ appearance, whilst its SmartGuide system is said to enhance functionality.
The hotel’s entrance was created by a pair of automatic sliding doors, fitted with pocket screens for extra safety and powered by Slimdrive SL NT operators.
With a height of just 7cm – Slimdrive SL NTs are almost invisible, virtually silent in operation and can move leaf weights of up to 125kg. They are said to be ideal for buildings with high levels of footfall and a continuous flow of people heading in and out of the building.
Also fitted were 300 TS 2000 NV BC overhead door closers to bedrooms and public areas. These closers are suitable for doors with up to 1100mm leaf widths and provide fire and smoke protection. They have an adjustable closing force which means that they can be balanced to reduce noise from guests entering or leaving their rooms.
