GEZE UK service keeps Blenheim Palace’s automatic doors open

GEZE automatic sliding glass doors at Blenheim Palace

GEZE installed a pair of automatic sliding glass doors with Slimdrive SL operators at the main entrance to the visitor centre.

Part of the Slimdrive range, the SL is almost invisible in elevation thanks to its extremely slim design and a drive unit height of just 7cm. It is an intelligent automatic door operator, which makes it perfect for high traffic areas where opening and closing a door manually would not be appropriate.

Winning the maintenance contract

When the Slimdrive SL was approaching the end of its warranty period, the company’s team of experienced engineers provided a free-of-charge maintenance check _ and won the maintenance contract on the spot.

Regular servicing is essential to ensure the longevity of an automatic door.

During each service, the engineers clean, assess and replace any moving parts and check the doors are not only operating correctly, but comply with the latest health and safety regulations.

They then adjust the sensors accordingly to ensure the doors continue to open and close correctly.

Clive Wilkins, Construction Manager, at Blenheim Palace: ñWith in excess of 400,000 people using the entrance each year, it is essential to keep our doors up and running through planned maintenance.We were impressed by GEZE’s service and by the fact that they have regionally based engineers. This means that they can respond quickly should the doors ever develop an operating problem, which is essential for a visitor attraction as popular as Blenheim Palace.î

Steve Marshall, service director at GEZE UK: ñWe support Blenheim Palace by providing the maintenance needed on the doors to the visitor centre. Preventative maintenance is essential to help cut the possibility of failure and extend the life of automatic doors, as well as ensuring that they work safely allowing visitors to enter and exit a visitor attraction quickly and easily.î
