Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp), Hamburg
Durban, South Africa
Located on the east coast and abutting the Indian Ocean, the city of Durban is South Africa's second largest metropolis with something over 3.1 million inhabitants. As one of the venues of the 2010 Soccer World Cup, Durban is also the home of a fascinating and grandiose arena - the Moses Mabhida Stadium. Named after Moses Mabhida, a politician widely revered by the people of South Africa, this marvel of construction represents both a technical and a visual milestone in stadium architecture.
dormakaba's contribution to the project
As a global systems manufacturer specialising in products "circling the door", dormakaba was also drafted in as a project contributor. Consequently, the doors are equipped with ED 200 automatic operators, with those of luxuriously appointed box suites additionally fitted with dormakaba's closing sequence coordinators for fi re and smoke check double doors.
dormakaba TS 91, TS 92 and TS 93 door closers sporting the discreet lines of the Contur design have also been integrated within the overall architectural concept. And finally, this major order was rounded off with dormakaba slide deadbolt locks, BTS 75 floor springs, and lever handles from the dormakaba Door Furniture unit.
