TORMAX Automatic Access for Top Hotel & Spa

Rudding Park Spa - Automatic Sliding Doors - Glass Doors

TORMAX - Rudding Park Spa near Harrogate

Following a significant re-development, Rudding Park Spa near Harrogate was recently voted Best UK Spa Hotel by the Sunday Times. The impressive new facilities, which include a rooftop spa and garden with hydrotherapy infinity pool and panoramic sauna, are accessed via state-of-the-art TORMAX fully automatic sliding doors. The contemporary glass doors are all powered by in-house designed iMotion drives, delivering unsurpassed reliability with whisper-quiet operation that reflects the luxurious environment of this outstanding spa hotel.

Rudding Park Spa is the latest development at award winning Rudding Park Hotel which features 90 bedrooms, two award winning restaurants, a private cinema, two golf courses and conference and events spaces. TORMAX was contracted to deliver automatic access solutions by aluminium glazing experts, HW Architectural.

“We are delighted to have been involved in such a prestigious project,” confirms Simon Roberts, managing director for TORMAX UK Ltd. “The spa is a fantastic showcase for our comprehensive range of iMotion sliding door operators and clearly demonstrates the quality of our design and installation teams.”

Specifically designed to deliver reliable operation even in high moisture environments, four TORMAX iMotion 2301.IP65 sliding door operators give visitors automatic access to the pool areas. Meeting the most stringent requirements for resistance to dust and water penetration as well as corrosion, all components of IP65-rated door drives are housed within a stainless-steel casing, allowing automatic entrances to be installed in a wide range of locations including cruise ships, commercial kitchens and even hospital operating theatres which require regular deep cleaning.

Elsewhere in the hotel, TORMAX iMotion 2202 bi-parting and single sliding doors were specified, offering discrete, unobtrusive automation for a minimalist solution.

“Since the spa opened in May 2017, Rudding Park Spa has received a number of prestigious awards”, explains Matthew Mackaness, Spa Director. “The whole look and feel of the spa was a key focus in the planning and design. As the entrance provides the first impression it was key that the doors used were of exceptional quality and set the tone for the rest of the guest experience. The contemporary glass doors are in-keeping with the quality and design of the spa and we are very please d to be working with Tormax.”
