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.
At Enclos, our mission is to enclos the world’s finest buildings with the world’s finest curtain walls. To this end we continue to search high and low for suppliers and vendors who pay special attention to quality and detail. Dash Door has become one of these specialty contractors whose own commitment to these same values are a natural fit to our own.
We contracted with Dash Door to provide a variety of entrance doors for the new federal office building, in Miramar, FL. Our scope included auto-operated doors, frames, hardware, security components and system integration and their expertise was integral to the success of the project.
Personally, as a project manager, I’ve been impressed with the reliable, knowledgeable, and committed staff Dash Door employs and have come to rely on their expertise.
