Designed by award winning architect, Zaha Hadid and a focal point of the 2012 Olympic Games, the Aquatics Centre will not only be home to a new Diving High Performance Centre but will also cater for swimmers of all abilities when the wave like building opens its doors to the public next month. 

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has undergone a significant transformation since the London 2012 Olympics with the Aquatics Centre ready to provide world-class facilities for both elite athletes and the local communities. For the reliable and efficient closing of doors throughout the venue, high quality door controls and floor springs from DORMA were chosen for this purpose.

They were specified by London based architectural ironmonger, Yannedis for their design, long term durability and ability to withstand constant, heavy use. DORMA floor springs BTS 75 and BTS 80F, door closers TS 71, TS 73 and TS 92 and concealed cam-action door closers ITS 96 were specified safe, secure and reliable access.
