Angel Building regeneration project incorporates DORMA products
Angel Building, an office block built in 1980’s in the heart of Islington, UK which has been transformed into a contemporary urban office space, has employed high performance door closers from DORMA.
High performance door closers from DORMA, including TS93 cam action door closers and DORMA BTS80F floor springs, were employed at the new entrance, retail units and internal doors. Featuring a compact and elegant design, these doors complemented the modern vision of this high end office space.
Bellsure Supplies Ltd supplied the DORMA TS93 cam action door closers in the stylish Contur design with a silver finish. Unlike rack and pinion slide-channel door closers, the DORMA TS93 system uses a linear drive mechanism and heart-shaped cam to ensure that resistance encountered when opening the door decreases instantly with the opening action. The rapidly decreasing opening force ensures that each door can be opened with minimal resistance to meet the requirements of BS8300 and Approved Document M, offering ease of use for children and elderly people as well as improved disabled access.
DORMA BTS80F universal floor springs feature a two-valve controllable closing cycle, adjustable closing speed and backcheck. A comprehensive programme of accessories ensures that they can be used with a wide variety of floor coverings and door constructions, including glass.
DORMA’s TS93 cam action door closers and BTS80F floor springs are both CERTIFIRE approved and CE marked to BS EN 1154.
The £72 million ($115 million) Angel Building redevelopment project has been designed by Alford Hall Monaghan Morris and built by BAM Construction for client Derwent London. The six-storey building features new interiors and a tailored facade to St John’s Street which sweeps round to the Pentonville Road. The RIBA Stirling-nominated building retains the original structure but has been completely remodelled inside. It features retail units on the ground level and a stunning new full height atrium.
Spread over 263,000 square feet, the building has cleverly re-used the concrete frame of the old building, adding to its sustainability credentials. Other elements include intelligent lighting, biomass boilers, high performance glazing and low energy lifts.
Angel Building has received BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and won several awards, including AIA UK Excellence in Design Commendation 2012, New London Award for Working 2011, the RIBA Award for Architecture 2011 as well as being nominated for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2011.
