Revolving Around Aluminium

The new entrance at Exchange House in the City of London

A Jack Aluminium TD68 entrance door and JCW curtain walling were put together with a revolving door to create a new entrance to London’s Exchange House which is located in Broadgate, in the City of London.

Exchange House is a ‘building-bridge hybrid’, featuring four structural arches to bear the load of the building, which runs directly over 18 railway lines.

Fabricator, IDF Aluminium, worked with both Jack Aluminium and revolving door specialist, Boon Edam. The entrance features a revolving door, a single access door and curtain walling.


 “This was an exciting project to work on – it’s an impressive building. Working with Jack Aluminium is great because I can get a system which works for pretty much any product I need. We use the TD68 a lot because it’s a great entrance door system and being able to get curtain walling from them also makes my life a lot easier.”

“On top of all that, Jack’s service is fantastic. The aluminium market has obviously been tough recently but they’ve been very upfront and honest throughout and have kept communicating with us,” adds Woods.

Having passed the stringent STS 202 test, the TD68 thermal door and shopfront system is a popular choice for commercial buildings where higher security is needed.
