PJ Exchange Offices - PJX – Malaysia


One of the most important aspects of day-to-day work is the environment in which employees carry out their job. The lighting, colours, smells and distribution of an office can change the attitude, behaviour and performance of the people who carry work in it.

How do automatic doors help in office buildings?

Manusa installed bi-parting doors with transparent leaves in a high-profile office building located in Petaling Jaya (Malaysia): the PJ Exchange, internationally known as PJX.

It is the new iconic office building of Petaling Jaya (PT). The tower of steel and glass has 33 floors and is the tallest in the city, located within the Central Business District of the city. With class A energy certification, this office block has become a symbol of sustainable development when it comes to construction building.

Manusa doors, installed along with Bansho, not only allow the fluid entry and exit of people, but are also a good means to maintaining the temperature between the interior and exterior of the building, reducing the need of overloading the air conditioning equipment.

Manusa works so that its products can be installed and benefited from in offices around the world. To that end, three large spaces are distinguished according to their needs:

  • Firstly, the entrances and exits of the building. In these areas, sliding, curved or automatic revolving doors are installed, as well as access control systems. We take into account that it is a place of high traffic flow in which it is necessary to facilitate mobility and provide distinction.
  • Secondly, partitioning of spaces are considered. Different spaces are created without creating barriers, integrating the products into the environment, helping mobility and temperature control. Here we would find sliding and telescopic automatic doors.
  • In a third space of the building we would find the evacuation zones. This is where automatic doors with an integral panic mechanism are installed to facilitate a quick and safe evacuation in case of emergency.
