Demonstrating its commitment to helping create energy efficient buildings, DORMA will be exhibiting its groundbreaking new ED100 low energy swing door operator. The ED100 has been cleverly engineered to provide dual method of opening – manual or under power – providing the ability for building owners to actively minimise energy use.
In addition the system includes an Energy Saving Mode function that allows IRS sensors to be switched to standby and minimise unnecessary power consumption, offering further energy saving of up to 30%. As the icing on the cake, DORMA has also managed to design the product to incorporate 40% less material than its previous generation of low energy door operators, without affecting its slim line aesthetics or integrity.
The company will also be launching DORVISION, a low cost, intelligent automatic door management system. A revolution in door control, the system allows clients to remotely monitor and manage their premises’ doors online via a secure online gateway.
Highly versatile the system can be used in a wide variety of applications from transport facilities to large offices and shopping centres. Able to be interfaced with any type of automatic door operator, the GPRS based wireless system, is cleverly concealed within the door equipment. From there, it captures up to the minute data, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing the user with real-time remote handling functionality of the doors’ main controls. Should a problem arise with any door fitted with DORVISION, it can be diagnosed remotely by the DORMA Service Team who will activate an immediate response or the remote reset facility allows many problems to be solved without the need for a service engineer to attend.
In addition to the two new products, DORMA IRELAND has also created a new RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) approved CPD presentation which they will be presenting at the exhibition.
Entitled ‘Accessible Building Design: The Way Forward’, the presentation explains which types of automatic door operators and manual door controls meet the requirements of the Disability Act and relevant building regulations.
Information on the presentation, which has been written with a common sense approach and a suggestion to look to simple yet effective access solutions, will be available from stand F11. Demonstrations of DORVISION and the ED100 low energy swing door operator will also be on the stand.
