Boodles, the top-end jewellery store in Sloane Street, recently contracted Warrior Doors to develop an automatic entrance solution that would meet their stringent demands for security whilst also providing a welcoming shopfront for their discerning customers.
Manufactured entirely from stainless-steel, the bespoke entrance consists of two individual automatic sliding doors, powered by TORMAX iMotion 2302 operators, that work in tandem to create an attractive entrance lobby. This ‘airlock’ solution is capable of withstanding even the most determined security breach, combining an impressive interlocking system with security glass certified to LPS 1270 1,2,3, to deliver a product that is secured up to LPS 1175 SR3.
“The public front of Boodles, onto Sloane Street, needed to marry security with a historic yet opulent design,” comments Michael Wainwright, managing director for Boodles.
“The Warrior Airlock sliding door definitely fits the brief and has been a huge success. Not only does it make the shop far more secure, it enhances the luxurious ambiance of the boutique. The fortified shopfront has given us total reassurance that our stock – and more importantly our staff – are now far safer than ever before.”
“We chose to use a TORMAX iMotion 2302 automatic sliding door operator as we felt it was the most effective product on the market for our needs,” explains Anthony Heslegrave, Estimator & Company Buyer for Warrior Doors. “The Boodles’ store sliding doors are quite heavy and we needed a hi-tech operator to drive for such a robust set of doors. The TORMAX iMotion 2302 was the best solution.”
The Swiss-designed TORMAX iMotion 2302 combines an exceptional life span with assured reliability thanks to the unique, high-torque motor that has been cleverly designed without any of the elements that commonly wear out, such as gears and brushes. In addition, the installation height of the iMotion 2302 is just 150mm, ensuring it blends discretely into the prestigious Boodles interior.
