Case Studies – The Shard Shopping Arcade in London - swing door
The Shard Shopping Arcade in London. The installation of these record swing doors (DFA 127) and manual side door solved the problem of a wind tunnel effect which had previously been created at the shopping centre. A telescopic door was also installed in another position within the shopping centre.
The Shard Shopping Arcade comprises six retail units and nine kiosks/retail bays offering more than 8,250 sq ft of space. The Shopping Arcade sits directly on the pedestrian route between London Bridge underground station and the main entrances to The Shard of Glass landmark and The News Building, where hundreds of city professionals are based. The Shopping Arcade was designed by The Shard of Glass architect Renzo Piano and has floor-to-ceiling glazing throughout and provides the retail units with unique sizing configurations that ensure each brand has its own bespoke space. The entrance to the Shard Shopping Arcade was fitted with record DFA 127 swing doors with a manual side door. A record TSA 20 telescopic sliding door was also fitted at another entrance within the same shopping centre.
