GEZE UK takes centre stage for leisure needs

GEZE UK has issued a new Project Portfolio showing how the entrance needs of leisure venues have been put into practice within a range of different buildings from a prestigious art gallery, theatres old and modern, to striking landmark visitor attractions.

The company acknowledges that all leisure venues seeking to attract people through their doors need to strike the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. Alongside this can be a long list of specific needs - sustainability, accessibility, security, health and safety, flow of people around the building, environmental impact or heritage sensitivity.

The brochure highlights the flexibility that GEZE UK’s extensive range of solutions provides as a manufacturer of both manual and automatic door and window control systems.

It illustrates how the application of solutions must meet demanding and exacting standards that will help ‘sell’ the venue to visitors while meeting practical requirements for building management.

Examples include the Whitworth Gallery, in Manchester, which was enhanced by a glazed extension that complemented the existing Grade II listed building, and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre where increasing audience numbers led to the need to create new entrances that made a grand statement, whilst allowing large numbers of people to flow through the building effectively.

Also featured are automatic bi-parting curved sliding glass doors that sit seamlessly within The Wing, a visitor and education centre for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust at Capel-le-Ferne, Kent, demonstrating how GEZE’s innovative products provide impressive entrances that echo the building’s style, whilst ensuring accessible, draught-free entrances.

The Project Portfolio Leisure defines the importance of specifying the right doors for the environment - in this case the entrances to the Beach Building, beneath Brighton’s ‘vertical pier’, the British Airways i360. The solution had to be robust and resilient, capable of withstanding both high visitor numbers and coastal elements.

A digital version of the brochure is available from the downloads section of the GEZE UK website, while the printed version can be obtained by calling the marketing team on 01543 443015.

Said Andy Howland, director of sales and marketing for GEZE UK: “We’re delighted that our products continue to play an integral part in so many innovative, high-profile and architecturally exciting projects

“With a comprehensive product range supported by extensive project experience, and the ability to provide in-depth technical support, we’re equipped to deliver real solutions, no matter what challenges the buildings themselves or their locations pose.”
