Chicago – Curved Automatic Door

Client: Chicago based GC

Chicago, Ill.

When a Chicago based General Contractor called Dash Door with a unique problem, we knew our Specialty Services Group would be involved.  The issue at hand was how to automate a Handicap / ADA circular automatic door which had been constructed to match adjacent  revolving entrances.  Curved door panels and the famed wind resistance of the “Windy City” would all come into play.

The answer was a custom-built Dor-O-Matic Hydraulic Automatic Door System paired with a build to suit access control panel and ADA push-buttons mounted on both the interior and exterior of the entrance.  Dash Door’s team made the trip to Chicago to oversee the self-performing General Contractor in the installation of the hydraulic lines and in-floor operators.  Dash Door provided integration of the control and hydraulic power systems.

The result was an attractive entrance with a reliable, powerful and completely concealed solution.
