Portcullis delivers successful door automation to national contract

Gate automation specialist, Portcullis Automation Ltd, has added a new service to its core disciplines following a successful delivery of door automation to Liberty Living Ltd.

Door Automation

The national client, Liberty Living Ltd, provides student accommodation and operates in 19 locations across more than 55 sites. The new doors are just one of the services delivered to Liberty Living by Portcullis including preventative maintenance with a 24/7 call out facility for gates, barriers, automatic doors and roller shutters. Both Portcullis and Liberty Living consider safety to be a top priority.

Portcullis were enlisted to provide assistance with the existing entrance swing doors which were proving to be the cause of a recurring health and safety issue. The layout of the building caused a wind tunnel which was emphasised by the doors and could cause harm to users. Liberty London requested Portcullis to design a door system with a high duty cycle that would not embody the same issue as the previous swing doors.

Utilising their experience with automation and entrance solutions, Portcullis proposed a new automatic sliding door system. The system would allow the door to be in constant operation without being susceptible to the weather. Liberty Living Ltd have already started to apply the solution on a national level.

Discussing the solution, Justin Earl, Managing Director of Portcullis Gate Automation Ltd, said:

Portcullis is pleased to have delivered another successful solution for Liberty Living Ltd. The previous swing door posed an unexpected risk and the quick solution shows Portcullis’ and Liberty Living’s commitment to health and safety.

The doors have had a positive reception and are already being rolled out nationally which just goes to show that Liberty Living have strong faith in our solution. We look forward to providing further assistance to Liberty Living Ltd with other projects.

The provision of door automation to the client follows recent news that Portcullis has retained Liberty Living Ltd for an additional three years.
