When the design team for Gino D’Acampo‘s fabulous restaurant in Manchester were sourcing a wide span door that would be both space saving and also reliable, Gino and his team knew the number one choice would be a New Wave Door. After quickly ruling out a lift and slide patio door because they needed to achieve the whole space opened up, therefore they were left with either a bi-folding door or our slide and swing door.
An industry favourite due to its space saving operation, meaning they would not have to sacrifice any tables to accommodate the necessary door system the New Wave Door offered the complete package.
Due to its location within the Corn Exchange Manchester, the Restaurant needed a door to act like a shopfront. During opening hours, the doors are fully opened to allow customer access from the impressive atrium then closed every evening. So it was paramount the designers choose a product that could withstand the relentless workload.
The other major factor the design team had to consider was the enormous height of the doors. At an impressive 3.2 metres high. The team quickly ruled out using a conventional bi-folding door as they felt they would have had a constant battle with lateral movement causing operation problems.
The Next Step
Priding themselves on delivering the highest level of build quality Gino’s team were attracted to the New Wave doors sleek and modern design unspoiled by any hideous external hardware. The doors powder coated in anthracite Grey ral 7016 to blend in with the restaurants contemporary finish, as a result complimenting the Atrium perfectly.
The Restaurant has received a fantastic number of compliments in reference to the New Wave Doors. Subsequently we are now the only door system the design team will specify on their projects
