Case Study: Kiss Gyms Automatic Doors

Kiss Gyms Automatic Doors Situation:

The directors of Kiss Gyms, wanted to renovate the entrance of one of their branches of gyms in London to give it a new look while at the same time enhancing the security and safety of the premises.

ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd has previously designed, manufactured and Installed a number of automated entrance systems to their other buildings in the Kiss Gyms chain and in order to achieve these goals, Kiss Gyms again contacted ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd to create the best automatic door solution for this particular site.

Automatic Doors Solution:

ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd suggested that to save the expense of a new door the best solution would be to install a ERREKA 250 single swing operator (with safety) to the existing door. This design is by far the best solution for Kiss Gyms in London and will instantly assist in the heavy pedestrian traffic that Kiss Gyms experience on a daily basis.

The new entrance system will not only enhance the appearance of the building but in addition deliver fantastic customer service to the members of the gym. The ERREKA 250 automatic door operators are used for door weights up to 250kg. The operators are power open and spring close, in the event of power failure the doors can be used manually, there is also a battery back-up option if required.

The ERREKA 250 automatic door operators have numerous applications, particularly as private or public access points for disabled persons or premises with heavy traffic and limited space.

Kiss Gyms Outcome:

Kiss Gyms was very pleased with the result of the automatic entrance system that ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd installed and members carrying all their sports equipment were pleased not to have to struggle with manually operated doors. The aluminium entrance screen and the automatic doors did improve the aesthetic appeal of Kiss Gyms. The members of Kiss Gyms commended the renovation that was made.

The sensors in the automatic doors are a very high quality and therefore members were safe from being hit by the door and as the Gym holds children’s sessions they do not have to worry about their hands being caught accidentally and injured.

Kiss Gyms achieved more than their initial goals. The glass panels on the entrance screen also allowed more light to enter the building’s interiors, making the atmosphere more comfortable and pleasant. With the high quality material used, the gym will also be able to save on renovation and repair costs in the future as the aluminium and glass can last for a number of years despite the heavy use. Quite quickly after installation, the gym also noticed a reduction in their heating bills. They expect to save even more once winter sets in since the automatic doors are able to keep outside elements from getting in.
