Helping create the future of learning G

EZE UK is giving students a super welcome at one of Europe’s newest super colleges – the £228

million City of Glasgow College in the heart of Glasgow. The technical and professional skills

college, which has been created on two sites, one either side of the River Clyde – City Campus and Riverside – has been called a ‘college of the future’. It aims to prepare students for the world of work with industry standard and state-of-the art facilities. Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, chose

GEZE products to create the entrances to match that at City Campus. The cutting- edge, contemporary building with almost 1000 learning spaces, needed to incorporate a statement entrance, but also have practicalities and safety in mind. The west and south elevations have a

similar aesthetic with imposing glass and steel framed facades into which manual revolving doors have been installed along with automated swing doors to one side. The college has been built to accommodate

40,000 students and 1300 staff, so functionality was key to ensure a steady flow of traffic across the threshold. The TSA 325 NT manual revolving doors are spacious yet easy to operate. They include a control system which ensures that those using the door cannot be forced to speed up by a someone entering the door behind them The TSA 325 NT also provides an effective draught-free lobby, keeping noise, dirt and dust out of the building. The Slimdrive EMD-F electro-mechanical

swing doors fitted next to the revolving doors are extremely versatile. They provide easy

access for those with mobility issues as assisted opening can be initiated using the operating button with guaranteed constant opening and closing speed. At just 7cm high, the Slimdrive EMD-F operator is extremely discreet and sits neatly on the frame. It is a low-wear, hi-performance system which is exceptionally quiet in operation. At Riverside, the RIBA Sterling prize

nominated campus incorporates a Slimdrive SL NT single sliding automatic door on the entrance to a 198-bed student accommodation block which is home to more than 3,000 marine and engineering students. The Slimdrive SL NT blends seamlessly

into the entrance of the contemporary pillared frontage. With an operator height of just 7cm – it is almost invisible and can move leaf weights of up to 125kg, making it ideal for public buildings with high levels of footfall and a continuous flow of people moving in various directions.

Door closer assures safer schools

UK designed and manufactured, Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers from Samuel Heath deliver a host of benefits for educational learning and accommodation buildings.

Meeting all relevant fire performance and accessibility requirements, Powermatic door closers also help to create safer buildings and reduce maintenance costs.

Being totally invisible when the door is closed and having few parts on show when the door is open, Powermatic is less likely to be vandalised than surface-mounted devices. This reduces the risk of a fire door being rendered inactive by a damaged door closer and means that maintenance or repair costs are minimised.
