Hartbeespoort’s famous Upside Down House may sound like a disorganised location, but one thing is for sure – it has complete control over who enters and exits the building.
Upside Down House South Africa is a premier tourist attraction, boasting furniture that is upside down, art, jumping castles and kiddies’ rides, along with a small takeaway restaurant with sit down area around farm field.
Thanks to dormakaba, a leading provider of access control and security solutions and its sales partner Altitude Glass, Upside Down House SA now also features a state-of-the-art automated entrance system.
Dormakaba salesman Jaco Joubert offered the ES 200 modular sliding door operator as a solution to meet the clients access requirements and upon acceptance, Nic Slabbert installed and commissioned the unit. This is a completely redesigned sliding door operator that corresponds to all the European and German standards and safety regulations.
It encompasses a stylish and modern cover design, a motor that ensures a virtually silent operation, a microprocessor that automatically controls the opening and closing speeds of the door, an energy saving power unit and new programming functions allowing for quick and simple installation, set-up and maintenance.
Key features include: –
- Modular system suitable for single or bi-parting doors
- ES 200 2D for application in emergency exits and escape routes
- Hassle free door program selection using the remote program switch
- Modules with special functions for challenging fields of application
- Standardised mechanical components for all operator types
- Sound-damping, replaceable track rail
The operators are tested to DIN 18650 / EN 16005 and/or approved for application in emergency exits and escape routes as specified in the German guidelines for automatic sliding doors in escape routes (AutSchR).
