The innovative architectural firm Foster + Partners chose our doors for the McLaren Technology Centre. Both the access ways for cars and the all-glass doors in the curtain walls are Compact doors. The requirement was that the doors would fit seamlessy into the design. To achieve this goal all doors were custom made.
The production centre which opened in 2011 also has Compact doors on the outside. At the end of the production line the cars pass through three glass boxes on their way to the car wash. Each glass box is opened and closed with a powder coated Full Light Compact door.
In this type of Compact door the whole surface is constructed from Full Vision panels. The advantage of using transparant fillings is more natural light in the building and a clear view inside and out. In addition to the clear acrylic and polycarbonate fillings the panels can also be equipped with safety glass, mesh or combinations thereof. The Full Vision door gives each building a luxurious appearance.
Full vision panels are aluminum hollow profiles with vertical center posts and a filling of your choice. The fillings are clamped to the inside with a white frame that consists of polythene and rubber. Full Vision panels can also be combined with insulated sandwich panels. It is also possible to fit these panels with no filling at all.View
