Domoferm supplied over 120 steel doors and 84 steel frames
Housed in a former defense tower from the Second World War with a height of 50 meters, the Haus des Meeres, which is located in Vienna's sixth district, is particularly striking from the outside.
A colorful and lively interior
Hardly anyone suspects from its external appearance that such a colorful underwater world is to be found in this building. More than 10,000 animals cavort on 11 levels and an area of 5,000 m²: fish from fresh and salt water, birds, snakes, turtles, rays, sharks and many more. There is always something new to discover in the facility, which mainly consists of sea aquariums and terrariums.
The building is constantly being expanded with additions and the floors are changing. In order to enable better access to the house, the building was expanded and enlarged from the basement to the 11th floor. A safe escape route must be guaranteed for every visitor in an emergency.
Domoferm steel doors offer visitors protection and security
In the course of the expansion, Domoferm supplied over 120 steel doors and 84 steel frames. The Prestige steel door with a block frame, round light opening and panic bar is installed on all levels. In the color RAL 7047, the steel door blends harmoniously into the building's surroundings. The round light opening provides brightness and transparency and is reminiscent of the windows of a submarine. The overall concept is very coherent.
The terrarium department mainly contains reptiles such as turtles, snakes, lizards and crocodiles.
Here, too, the Prestige steel door with fixed leaf impresses with its elegant, linear appearance. The steel door offers the best fire protection so that visitors can feel really safe.
A clear panoramic view of the city of Vienna
There is a special location on the top floor: the 360° OCEAN SKY Restaurant. It is the highest rooftop location in Vienna's city center - with a unique view. Culinary delicacies can be enjoyed here at any time of the day. The Prestige steel door with fixed leaf and panic bar connects the corridor on the upper floor with the restaurant. The best safety equipment guarantees maximum protection.
A special highlight - the two-story shark tank
The 300,000 liter two-level shark tank is definitely one of the highlights. The porthole of the steel door offers a first glimpse before entering the premises.
Most recently, a hammerhead ray pool was opened on the newly accessible 10th floor. Already from the elevator you can take a look at the new home of hammerhead sharks, cownose rays & co. It also houses a sea turtle that elegantly presents itself to visitors. It is an unforgettable sight and a true experience.
Through the use of functional doors, Domoferm offers security and protection in numerous public buildings.
