Project Description

Back to overview

Strong wind turned the entrance doors of the Regiocentrale Maasbracht into something really dangerous or prevented their opening or closing

Now the hinged door operator DICTAMAT 310-21 makes sure the entrance doors open and close safely – in all kinds of weather

Wind has been getting to us more and more during the last years. In the Regiocentrale Maasbracht/the Netherlands a normal hinged door operator was no match for the wind. Already at wind force 4 which is quite common there, it couldn’t move the doors safely any more.

The Regiocentrale Maasbracht is the linchpin for all ships on the Maas, from the Belgian border to Venlo.

The Regiocentrale Maasbracht is the linchpin for all ships on the Maas, from the Belgian border to Venlo.

So urgently a solution for automatizing the doors was needed, which would still function without problem – as demanded by the customer – at wind forces of 9 Beaufort. Of course with the corresponding safety for the people passing through the doors as well as for the doors and the glass facade of the building itself. Because when the doors are open they are completely exposed to the wind. And nevertheless they shall stay surely in this position, not knock open any further or close in an uncontrolled manner. This was even more important as the doors are operated from a desk farther away.

Technical data of the doors: 
Two single-leaf hinged glass doors
Weight: about 320 kg
Dimensions: 3000 x 1500 mm (height x width)
Equipped with a motorised unlocking and locking system

Hinged door operator - entrance doors open and close safely

The open door exposes a large surface to the wind – but the DICTAMAT 310-21 XXL has it surely under control.

Door operator and control system are located in a special casing above the door which inconspicuously blends in the building construction.
