Metal can be used in various places for a variety of purposes: to create a luxurious space, to implement a symbolic design, to symbolize the stately nature of an area. This stems from one of the unique features of metal, its flexibility – in design, finishes and shapes.
Metals typically don a glossy or highly reflective surface, however, it could also be worked into a more dignified physique, like the FURUMI (sulfurized) finish. Introduced below is such an example, three types of FURUMI (sulfurized) finished brass doors installed to an automatic door supplier.
The first type is a single pull automatic door for a mechanical parking lot. To accommodate various cars, the doors are outsized, being 5m wide and 2m tall. To implement this, five pieces of 1.5mm thick brass bent-panel detailed panels, finished with hairline, FURUMI (sulfurized) finish, and clear coating were installed at 1m wide pitch.
The same FURUMI (sulfurized) finished brass was selected for the automatic draw doors of 1130mm wide, 2150mm high at the back door.
The front door of the tenant’s office was also installed with Kikukawa’s FURUMI (sulfurized) finish brass doors. The exterior of the 1680mm wide, 2180mm high double doors are lined with 8 pieces of 1.5mm thick bent-edge detailed FURUMI (sulfurized) finished brass. The three vertical 15mm deep slits create a solid expression.
The slit details also conceal the installation hook detail. As the joint clearance for installation was 0.25mm, the installation required precision. To assist a successful installation for the installation supplier, Kikukawa provided detailed installation detail drawings.
As demonstrated with this project, Kikukawa is able to provide attentive, detailed, and bespoke services for each requirement. For bespoke metal doors or fittings, please consult us for any complications, difficulty, or feasibility.
