Completed in June 2021, the new and improved Warwick Arts Centre, situated on the University of Warwick’s campus, acted as a key venue for Coventry’s year of UK City of Culture in 2021, designed by Ellis Williams Architects, with Bond Bryan as delivery architect, and project managed by Turner & Townsend.
Our brief for the project, was to automate the main entrance swing doors (four pairs) to provide DDA accessibility to the building, contracted by Norman & Underwood who were the glazing and curtain walling subcontractors on the project to carry out the works. BEA Flat Scan Safety Sensors were fitted to the doors, as due to the narrow top door rails, there would not have been sufficient room on the top rail to house the drive arms, maglocks, and traditional top rail safety sensors, making the BEA Flatscan sensor the ideal safety to use in this scenario.
