PollardsFyrespan offers a door revolution


Construction professionals engaged in designing commercial premises, retail centres, hotels and public buildings will often consider including revolving doors to suit the high pedestrian traffic volumes as well as their energy saving potential. However, PollardsFyrespan can offer further aesthetic and practical advantages to suit many different situations.

The specialist door manufacturer has had long experience of supplying standard and bespoke revolving door installations to clients across the sectors, and has recently expanded its design and manufacturing capability.

PollardsFyrespan can now fabricate doors up to three metres in diameter using its ColourLine suite of aluminium extrusions which feature an anodised or polyester powder coat finish.

Alternatively, the aluminium sections can be faced using brake pressed, polished brass, bronze or stainless steel while all doors can be fabricated to match or contrast with the glazed entrance screens which also come within the company’s compass. Bottom rails can also be sized to harmonise with surrounding plinths or skirtings.

Where transparency and light transmission are paramount in the designer’s objectives, all-glass revolving doors can be produced and set within screens featuring Pollards frameless structural glazing construction techniques.

Fully aware of the challenge that imminent implementation of the Disability Discrimination Act is setting for property owners and managers, PollardsFyrespan also presents a wide choice of automatic swing and sliding doors which can be incorporated as side pass doors to the revolving unit.

As another option for increasing the space available for occasional access requirements, the company can incorporate its innovative Stack-a-Side feature into any of its revolving door installations. This device permits members of staff trained in its use to fold flat two of the leafs and move them to one side, freeing up the whole width of the cylinder for the passage of large items.

PollardsFyrespan door systems are fully certificated to all relevant standards while the company offers a comprehensive technical support service able to carry out surveys and give advice on appropriate specification.

PollardsFyrespan is part of the Anglo-Scandinavian HansenGroup, one of Europe's leading fenestration specialists, with annual sales of £100 million and over 1,000 employees. HansenGroup's activities extend from structural glazing, curtain walling and windows, fire resisting and steel glazing systems and advanced glass processing to high performance steel doorsets for fire, acoustic, security and cleanroom applications.
