RC2/3 Automatic Sliding Door System (Burglar Resistance)

RC2/3 automatic doors are suitable for applications with a higher threat of break-in or criminal attack such as banks, jewellers shops, electrical retailers, museums and offices. The reinforced door profiles incorporate a multi point locking mechanism approved to EN 1628 (static tests), EN 1629 (dynamic tests) and EN 1630 (manual burglar test) thereby achieving overall security rating of RC2 or RC3.

RC3 has also been assessed to conform to the security requirement of PAS24:2012.

Thanks to their slim line looks, RC2/3 automatic doors are similar in appearance to standard automatic doors offering a solution that is suitable for design conscious environments. Designed to satisfy BS EN 16005:2012. Gilgen SLX –M sliding door operators are tested for 1 million cycles, providing proven reliability. Compliance with other notable UK standards such as Part M & Part B of the building regulations, The Equality Act and BS 8300:2009 is also achieved.

Standard product features

Drive system:

RC2/3 SLX-M sliding door drive system integrates Bluetooth wireless control technology and a powerful, near silent drive into a very slender in profile. System components are connected via a can-bus, which not only guarantees smooth and reliable operation, but also facilitates constant communication with the processor to ensure optimum operational safety.


  • Combined presence and activation sensing devices ensure door opening distances are in accordance with BS EN 16005, prevent doors closing on pedestrians within the threshold area and provide a signal to the door control system, thereby optimising pedestrian safety.
  • Rear edge sensors (electro sensitive protection equipment, ESPE) complying with BS EN 16005 are located within the door operator to maintain back of door safety and protect pedestrians against crushing edges at the main closing edge.
  • Fail-safe system (battery back-up) enables up to 30 minutes operation (subject to use) in the event of a mains failure. The fail safe system is automatically tested at least once every 24 hours.
  • Fire alarm interface connection enables door leaves to fail safe to open in the event of an emergency. In compliance with BS EN 16005 door sets with a clear opening width of up to 2000 mm open by at least 80% within 3 seconds after activation by the activators in the escape direction (or within 5 seconds in the event of the loss of power.)


24V DC motor with microprocessor controller which allows extensive options for opening width, electric locking, summer/ winter modes, exit only, manual control, speed of opening and the length of time the door is open.


A choice of either automatic or manual multipoint locking (integrated into the door leaf) is available please consult the manufacturer.

Door weight:

  • Single sliding doors: 1 x 150 kg.
  • Bi-parting doors: 2 x 250 kg.

Power requirements:

230 V single phase. A 13 A live neon-lit fused spur supply, protected by a 30 mA RCD must be provided prior to installation. In order to comply with BS EN 16005 the mains connection must be capable of disconnection to prevent unintentional and unauthorised reactivation.
