THE CHALLENGE


New York City’s building code mandates that trash rooms in newly
constructed and renovated high-rise residential buildings be equipped
with automated doors to make them fully accessible to disabled persons.
The Code stipulates that residents must have the ability to open trash
room doors using a wall push button (Knowing Act Switch). It also
requires that the door remains open until the space is vacated and closes
and re-latches automatically.

 


THE SOLUTION


The 5800 Series ADAEZ® Trash Room Door (TRD) kit from Norton is the
only automated door solution designed specifically for trash room doors.
The product is suitable for use with fire and smoke doors listed under
UL10C-90 minute rating.


The all-in-one kit dramatically simplifies the installation process. It
includes a door operator, 24VDC power supply cabinet with pre-wired
occupancy sensor and two wall push buttons (Knowing Act Switches).
Because the lock interface and occupancy sensor are pre-wired, it is easy
to install and requires no ongoing maintenance.


In addition, the ADAEZ TRD operator consumes only about 1 watt of
energy per year on average compared to traditional automated doors
which consume about 25 watts per year. In fact, GreenCircle® has certified
it to reduce energy consumption by as much as 91 percent versus other
comparable door operators.


The TRD system mounts on the door rather than above it to simplify
retrofit installations.

 

The all-in-one kit includes:


» Low voltage door operator
» Mounting hardware for virtually any door
and frame
» 24VDC 1 amp power supply
» Occupancy sensor
» (2) 1-3/4” surface mounted, stainless steel,
hardwired push buttons
» Armored door cord and 20’ of operator power and signal wire


Note: the electric lock is not included but can be easily integrated into the kit.

 

Jeff Weinstein, vice president of Mayflower Sales Co., Inc., of Brooklyn,
NY, a long-time distributor of Assa Abloy products said, “We often hear
about architects, building owners and general contractors who are
unaware of this code requirement and incur costly project delays when
their building is denied a certificate of occupancy. This kit just makes it
incredibly easy for them to comply with this aspect of the building code
and keep their project schedule on track.”


Jay Vaitkus, director of Business Development for the Norton brand,
said, “The team at Mayflower Sales has been instrumental in not only
generating awareness of this building code requirement among New
York City architects and contractors but also in promoting the existence
of the 5800 Series ADAEZ Trash Room Door kit as a simple solution.”


Because the TRD system is pre-wired, it reduces on-site installation
time and costs. Once a certified electrician has connected the electrical
enclosure, a tradesperson simply mounts the operator to the door to
render the system immediately operational.

Vincent Schmitt, owner of IAL Total Security in Long Island City, NY, said, "While the ADAEZ kits are designed specifically for New York City buildings, it's important to enlist a qualified electrician to do the rough-in work and to partner with an experienced installer to mount the control units.  My team made quick work installing nearly 60 ADAEZ kits throughout Tower 28."
