Recent project refurbishing the entrance doors for Oxford Playhouse theatre.

The Oxford Playhouse is a listed building, this means it cannot be altered. The entrance has 8 manual doors with concealed floor mounted closing equipment.


  • A number of doors closing dangerously.
  • A number of doors not closing correctly sealing up the entrance creating draughts.
  • Existing floor springs obsolete.


  • Retrofitting Dorma floor springs and hardware into the existing doors and floor.
  • Realigning doors into frames to give a better seal.
  • Set up doors to give a smooth closing speed.
