dormakaba, a global leader in secure and smart access solutions for buildings and rooms has been appointed to deliver its HSW-R sliding glass shop front system at the new Victoria Gate development in Leeds, which will contain approximately 42,000 m² of retail units and leisure space.
Working closely with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, dormakaba will be responsible for the delivery of its HSW-R sliding shop front system – totalling 150 panels across the Victoria Gate Arcade. Double glazed panels will be supported by an aluminium ceiling suspended track – meaning that no floor guides are required for the system - making it ideal for retail entrance settings.
Darren Hibberd, Projects Manager at dormakaba said: “Our HSW-R system was able to meet both the performance and aesthetic requirements defined by ACME Architects for the Victoria Gate retail development. Robust as well as elegant – it offers an ideal solution.”
Phase one of construction at the Victoria Gate complex, is due for completion in November 2016.
