CLAPHAM JUNCTION STATION – LONDON (GBR)
dormakaba helps provide ‘Access for All’ at £14.5M Clapham Junction Station refurb
London, United Kingdom
As Europe’s busiest railway station with 41 million trains passing through each year, Clapham Junction welcomes hundreds of thousands of passengers onto its platforms every day. Delivered by Network Rail with main contractor Osborne, the improvement package makes the station fully accessible for all passengers, including those with reduced mobility, heavy luggage or children.
dormakaba's contribution to the project
Delivering smooth operation and closing reliability in all weathers and seasons, dormakaba’s ED 100 swing door operators proved perfect for the entrance‘s new automatic doors.
During in-house testing at temperatures of -15°C, the ED 100 was proven to provide full performance, and reliable closing. Also equipped with dormakaba Wind-Load Control, the ED 100 swing door automatic operator can recognise and compensate for wind loads with a force of up to 150 N (maximum admissible force) making it the perfect solution for doors subjected to high winds and extreme temperature.
As part of the major improvement works, dormakaba FFT folding space saving doors completed the construction of the brand new ticketing facilities, travel information screens and toilets in a fully-refurbished ticket hall.
For the entrance to the new lift lobby at Platform 17, dormakaba supplied the ES 200 sliding door operator. Easy to install and set-up, it features a powerful motor and a dynamic acceleration/deceleration control capability to ensure reliable operation. The operating performance of the ES 200 is matched by its clean design that complements any building.
