Airport hotel is soaring success U

p, up and away – GEZE UK has helped a stunning new airport hotel prepare for ‘take off’ with a range

of products that have given it a real ‘wow factor’. The Novotel London Heathrow Airport

T1 T2 and T3 Hotel launched in March this year and has spacious modern interiors with a fluid configuration of public areas that make it suitable for travellers and other hotel customers. Two sets of GEZE Manual Sliding Wall

(MSW) systems – consisting of a total of nine glazed panels with two pass doors – were installed, incorporating natural patterns and forms from the air, sky and clouds. They present a showpiece room divider between bar and restaurant areas that allows the floorspace to be opened out or separated for different uses, such as private functions or breakfast service. 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 discretely 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 enhances functionality. The hotel’s impressive 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 ideal for buildings with high

Emergency lighting to BBC’s DIY SOS

As part of the BBC’s DIY SOS: Big Build project, Mackwell provided its emergency lighting systems and technical expertise to an ambitious project to create the North Kensington Community Centre and rebuild the Dale Youth Boxing Club which was destroyed in the Grenfell

Tower fire. Mackwell’s non-maintained emergency lighting with LED was specified. The Maxwell XYLUX LS IP65 fitting was used because it can be placed in high ceilings, mid-height ceilings, open areas and escape routes, with optics tailored to the light distribution required. Baffle ceiling for Rome Airport extension

The refurbishment of Italy’s Fiumicino airport has seen the design and specification of a vast sweeping ceiling canopy incorporating Hunter Douglas Architectural’s Tavola Baffle ceiling system. The ceiling canopy, which has been designed to let in great swathes of natural light,

looks down on over 10000sqm of retail outlets on the first floor and a 3000sqm Italian food and beverage street which also features Hunter Douglas Architectural’s Tavola system within the ceiling void. Tavola baffle ceilings are ideal for such environments, creating atmosphere and contribute to a highly efficient and comfortable acoustic environment.

levels of footfall and a continuous flow of people heading in and out of the building. The glazed doors were etched with spheres incorporating a ‘welcome’ and a Novotel logo. A fretted canopy was fitted over the exterior of the entrance. 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 1100 mm 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. GEZE UK worked on the project

with owner and developer Nine Group, London based Koncept Interior Design and architectural ironmongers Franchi Plc of Kent, from its early stages of development. GEZE had worked with the developer on a previous installation at Novotel Canary Wharf and it owners were sufficiently impressed to contact the company to work on this new hotel.
