Hotel X is located southwest of downtown Toronto with exquisite views overlooking Lake Ontario. Positioned on an exceptional site at Exhibition Place, Canada’s largest convention venue. The new oustanding Hotel houses a conference centre, sports club, ballrooms, a spa, two restaurants, and over 400 guestrooms.
The dramatic rooftop area, a three level 10,000 square feet venue that is open to the public, cantilevers over the tower, includes two bars, a hospitality suite, an indoor and outdoor pool with an installed Renlita S-2000 custom opening solution.
Working with architects NORR Ltd and general contractors McGill on this 750,000 sq. ft. magnificent hotel, we were contracted to help design and install an exterior separation on the rooftop terrace on the 28th floor of the hotel that offers a panoramic views of the lake and the Toronto skyline.
We were able to meet the requirements of a motorized operation with a wireless sensor edge for the custom opening that spans 22 feet wide by 10ft high, it has clear 1″ insulated glass and is finished with a powder coated frame with aluminum a threshold that is positioned across the rooftop pool and bar area.
Renlita S-2000 Hingeway operates as a counterweight balance technology to ensure smooth operation and durability. It is constructed from structural steel sections and suitable for Residential, Industrial, and Commercial applications. When opening, the Hingeway system folds along into a horizontal and creates an awning effect when open.
The S-2000 comes equipped with the standard safety features that you expect including an obstruction sensing motor, safety photo eyes and a patented failsafe device.
