Safety (BS EN 12453:2017)

An integrated self-monitoring safety light grille in the closing zone is fitted as standard : to a maximum monitoring height of 2500 mm. This provides non-contact safety within the closing zone and renders a safety edge redundent.

Operation warning lights operated two seconds prior to opening or closing. All speed doors are equipped with a safety device on its leading edge to prevent closing on a person / obstruction and will not make a force on closing greater then 400 N. A photo cell transceiver emits an infrared light beam across the door entrance to detect moving people or objects and will stop the door from closing if the beam is crossed or reverse operation if in closing operation.  When obstructed, it will reverse operation to allow safe passage.
