Doors Add Finishing Touch to Entertainment Center

Dec. 14, 2018

The new Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas, is a 410,000-sq.-ft., 16.7-acre, American Entertainment complex developed by The ARK Group and the City of Irving, and designed
by Gensler. The complex houses 20 restaurants and retail space.

LOCATION:
Irving, Texas
DESIGN TEAM:
Gensler
CHALLENGE:

The music arena converts easily from an intimate 4000-seat concert hall to an 8000-seat amphitheater, named the Pavilion at The Music Factory, the $40 million centerpiece of the complex. At the exterior of the Pavilion, at the outside of the amphitheater, are a series of seven, side-by-side, bifold liftstrap doors, ranging from 35 ft. 1 in. to 36 ft. 9 in. in width. All seven doors have a clear opening height of 25 ft., 6 in.

SOLUTION:

The engineered Schweiss Doors bifold liftstrap doors are equipped with the newly patented Schweiss automatic strap latch system, door base safety edges, 3-phase top-drive motors, black liftstraps and full length windrails that cap off the roller assembly. Roy Weisinger of Hangar Rental Inc. of Brookshire, Texas, installed the bifold doors.
