SPAR Supermarkets in Vienna and Murau, Austria

The Assignment

To provide energy-efficient automatic entrances for the first “climate protection” certified supermarkets in Austria.

The Challenge

To design entrances to meet SPAR’s requirements for energy savings and customer convenience.

The Solution

Besam Austria worked closely with SPAR in designing a vestibule with the optimal configuration of Besam automatic sliding doors and accessories to minimize energy losses.  By ensuring the best suitable type of automatic entrance, glass, activation units and air curtains, Besam was able to meet SPAR’s requirements for energy savings and convenience. The entrance solution helps to separate climate zones when the doors are open, and also helps to reduce opening and closing times. It also minimizes energy losses while the doors are closed and during non-business hours.

The Besam entrances, in combination with other state-of -the-art technology such as sustainable heating & cooling systems and LED lighting, have helped the SPAR store in Vienna reduce its energy consumption by 50% compared to traditions supermarkets of similar size. This achievement resulted in both of the SPAR grocery stores in Vienna and Murau being awarded Gold certification from ÖGNI, the Austrian Society for Sustainable Real Estate.

With the success of the first two “climate protection” supermarkets, Besam Austria is looking forward to continuing its innovative partnership with SPAR to develop an additional 10-15 climate protection stores during 2011. Besam Austria is also providing Pro-Active Care service to ensure optimum energy-savings performance and long product life.
