DORMA Reaches New Heights at The Shard

Automatic Door Operators - Concealed Door Controls - Door Closers

Dorma The Shard

The Shard, designed by Renzo Piano, has been described as a ‘vertical town’ and is set to dominate the London skyline for years to come.

The tallest building in Western Europe at 309 metres, The Shard features offices, luxury apartments, restaurants, a visitor attraction and a five star hotel on its 72 habitable floors.

In order to provide reliable and efficient access, DORMA automatic door operators, concealed door controls and floor springs were specified on various packages of works for their compact and elegant design, long term durability and ability to provide safe, secure and reliable access. Due to their constant use, products with proven performance were essential.
