GEZE UK installs MSN Portal

The UK's leading supplier of door and window control systems, GEZE UK, has created a striking entrance within London's futuristic Cardinal Place in the heart of Westminster.

Working directly with Radii Partitioning, GEZE UK has installed its best selling Slimdrive SL sliding door operators at the entrance to the offices of Microsoft giants MSN and the luxurious restaurant complex based in Cardinal Place. The mixed-use development, spread over two ultra-modern buildings, stretches across more than 57,000 sqm in London's prestigious Westminster.

The durability of the Slimdrive SL door operator was a key factor in the specification, as the high traffic entrance needed to withstand a continuous flow of people. With a minimalist design, which is integrated into the structure of the door and an overall closer height of just 7cm, the sleek look of the Slimdrive SL helps to enhance the modern style.

The economical use of energy to operate the closer also makes it environmentally friendly, which is of increasing importance to businesses and is essential for new buildings.

Sales and marketing director at GEZE UK, said: “The Slimdrive SL was chosen for its quality and durability, combined with its attractive design, which is entirely in keeping with the architect’s vision for this iconic building. "

Liam Whyte from Radii commented: "We chose GEZE UK's products for this very prestigious project as they offer a level of quality and reliability in tandem with aesthetics, that is unsurpassed. It’s a tough brief to install a practical and durable access portal while matching the exquisite design of Cardinal Place, but these doors really fit the bill.”
