ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems has successfully installed revolving door entrance systems at 12 Virgin Active Health Clubs in South Africa in just under 12 months.
There are over 112 Virgin Active Health Clubs across South Africa in each of the country’s nine provinces. With the philosphy of Live Happily Every Active, Virgin Active Health Clubs have created a health club that’s different from all the rest. The facilities offer state-of-the-art equipment and a wide variety of fitness classes offered by trained instructors, within a controlled air-conditioned environment. The health clubs are designed to ensure maximum comfort and convenience for their members.
According to André Aiton, ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems MD, the installations at the 12 respective health clubs are a combination of upgrades, renovations, extensions as well as brand new facilities.
The KDB-4-2400 2,4 m revolving door systems with four leaves supplied and installed by ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems are pedestrian, security and environmentally friendly, offering easy, safe, convenient, uninterrupted entrance and exit availability for Virgin Active members to and from the health clubs.
In addition, the energy-saving door systems prevent the air-conditioned atmosphere from escaping and thwart draughts. The controlled internal climate reduces electricity consumption which translates to cost savings for the health clubs.
“When it comes to upgrades and extensions there is only a limited period for installation to limit disruption so that member inconvenience is kept to an absolute minimum,” explains Aiton. “We had to ensure that the doors were supplied within the time period specified; the widespread geographical location of the Virgin Active Health Clubs in Gauteng, the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, presented us with a challenge. To streamline the installation of the door systems, we deployed specialist professional technical teams, equipped with the necessary tools and skills to each province.”
The technicians have to remain on standby after fitment “to assist customers with rapid technical service support including advice, maintenance and repair of the revolving door systems.”
“With backup facilities in all major cities in South Africa as well as other northern African countries, we combine local knowledge with global expertise and product innovation for ultimate customer peace of mind,” concludes Aiton.
