Won-Door is the solution for O.C. Tanner restoration
SALT LAKE CITY — Continuity. The preservation of light and space.
That’s what Won-Door products helped to provide in the O.C. Tanner headquarters restoration and remodel.
The four FireGuard accordion fire doors installed in the front entrance area of the building at 1930 S. State St. in Salt Lake met both the fire protection and egress requirements and worked with the design to create a light, lovely, open space.
Because the doors are recessed in storage pockets, they are virtually out of sight when there’s no emergency.
“It was the only way to have glass and the openings we wanted in the new entrance,” said Cecilia Uriburu, an associate with FFKR Architects. “We wanted to provide continuity while allowing for 600 or more people to pass through on a daily basis.”
Uriburu said Won-Door FireGuard horizontal doors was the only and best solution.
The architectural firm used four Won-Door doors in the project: two 23’ wide doors and two 40’ wide doors.
“We’re very happy with it,” Uriburu said.
