DORMA Provides ‘Invisible’ Door Controls At Exclusive Lakes Development

When The Lakes by Yoo, one of Britain’s most exclusive housing developments, completed the construction of one of its iconic lakeside homes, only the highest quality materials were chosen – right down to the finest detail. As such, when a new-build four bedroom home required door closers, ITS 96 concealed cam-action door closers from DORMA, the global market leader of door controls, automatics, glass and movable walls, were specified to provide high performance and reliable operation.

The Lakes by Yoo is a luxury second home community featuring a series of stunning, contemporary lakeside homes on a private 650 acre site in the Cotswolds. Home to a number of celebrities from world-famous DJ Pete Tong to supermodel Kate Moss and Holby City actress Tina Hobley the development is the creative vision of Yoo – a collaborative project between world-leading designer Philippe Starck and property developer John Hitchcox.

Each home at The Lakes by Yoo is meticulously designed to match every client’s individual demands and create a unique living space. When selecting the door closers for the new property, there was a great emphasis placed on a modern, minimalist appearance. For this, DORMA ITS 96 proved ideal.

The Yoo Design Team’s architect specified DORMA ITS 96 door closers to be integrated into three pairs of double doors in one of the development’s new luxury properties. For the installation, specialist contractor MiPa Carpentry Contractors was appointed.

The first system of its kind to integrate door closer into the leaf and frame of the door itself, the DORMA ITS 96 can be subtly incorporated into virtually any door type to maintain the elegant interior design and aesthetic. By simply disappearing into the framework, the ITS 96 door closers combine stunning appearance with exceptional performance.

Using DORMA’s market proven heart-shaped cam – kept completely out of sight – the ITS 96 ensures secure closing whilst offering rapidly decreasing opening force. This ensures operators of all ages encounter minimal resistance when operating the door. As such, the system provides the ultimate in user convenience.

As well as offering exceptional performance and integrated appearance, installing ITS 96 door closers will provide safety assurances and peace of mind. Tested to BS EN 1154 standards of mechanical efficiency and CERTIFIRE Approved for fire doors, the system offers the perfect solution for durable, reliable and safe access.

Now complete, the DORMA ITS 96 door closers will ensure that the stunning modern appearance of the development is maintained whilst providing safe and smooth access to its residents. The Lakes by Yoo stands as a fine example of modern architectural and design innovation, with the specification of DORMA further reinforcing the company’s position as the market-leading provider of door closers for the most prestigious developments.
