12/01/2010 | DITEC automatic doors in the excavations of Pompeii

Where past and present go hand in hand.

Boasting over 2 millions visitors a year, the archaeological site of Pompeii is the second most visited archaeological site in the world and has been selected by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Pompeii represents one of the most significant examples of Roman civilization and is like an exceptional open book on artworks, habits, trades and daily life of past civilizations. The city resurfaced after centuries of darkness exactly as it was, when it was suddenly covered by a thick layer of ashes and lava during the devastating eruption of mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

In this astounding setting, inside the excavations overlooking the "Casa Bacco", right in the heart of the ancient city, a new cafeteria run by Autogrill Spa has been opened.
To make it easier for the large flow of tourists to visit this exceptional artistic and cultural heritage, the restaurant has been fitted with the most modern and technologically advanced DITEC automatic doors: the new VALOR model.

The selection of the VALOR model was made because of the intensive and continuous transit of people going through the restaurant doors; this requirement is well matched by the prestigious features of DITEC automatic pedestrian doors: practicality, safety, prestige, enticing look, transit control and optimal energy consumption, over and above the most modern technological innovations in the automatic door industry.

Once again, this installation has proved how DITEC automations can improve transit control even in the busiest catering establishments.
