Project Overview

We are proud to have the prestigious Castleknock hotel as a valued client and our service and maintenance team work with their facilities team to ensure the ongoing smooth operation of the building for all users, including staff and guests of the hotel. Recently there was a requirement to automate and extend an existing corridor door from a standard double door to a brand new double doorset with an extended active leaf. This door was traditionally manual but in order to provide ease of access to the corporate meeting rooms area of the hotel we provided a fully integrated doorset, hardware and automation solution with sensor activation on both sides. This also provides a “covid compliant”, safe entry and egress for users of the corporate suites with contactless activation. The 60 minute doorset was manufactured specifically for this project, bespoke by our manufacturing company Elite Doors, in a paint grade finish to blend in with the other existing doorsets in the hotel with integrated vision panels on each leaf plus integrated ironmongery and automation, all pre-prepared in the factory for on-site installation by our BM Trada accredited carpenters.
