The customer’s requirement for dormakaba
- Guarantee secure access
- Install automated entrance doors
- Secure access to the skywalk
- Keep escape routes open
Over a total surface area of 3,200 m2, the Futurium impresses not just with its innovative programme but also with its architecture. These include the light and airy spaces, which can be accessed conveniently and free of barriers. The exterior is secured with automated entrance doors and the Futurium has also chosen dormakaba products for access to the skywalk. For this, swing door operators ED 100/250 as well as the TS 93 door closer system with EASY Open technology are being used.
