Light slabs of stone, lined by green hedges and Japanese maple, lead the visitor to the fully accessible entrances of the building. In order to ensure barrier-free access to the heroal Forum, door systems with a level, step-free threshold were installed. Since the entrance is situated at the weather side of the building, it was a challenge to protect it against the elements. The patented, seamlessly integrating drainage system heroal DS solved this problem: it creates fully accessible, step-free solutions, meeting the statutory regulations for accessible construction according to German industry norm DIN 18040-1 for public buildings and DIN 18040-2 for dwellings.
The heroal Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier front door directly leads to the staircase area. The residential and commercial front door system heroal D 72 is designed as floor to ceiling element, measuring 2,950 mm high and 1,300 mm wide. With the restrained colouring using the Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier shade gris 31 for door panel and handle, it unobtrusively blends in the building shell.
The automatic door system made from the door system heroal D 65 provides convenient and barrier-free access to the building and also serves as a wind lobby for the adjacent bistro area, where culinary and regional dishes are freshly prepared. Employees and guests of the company enjoy the daily changing dishes on offer and also use the heroal Bistro and the adjoining patio to relax or exchange ideas across departments.
