Standard product features

Drive system:

  • SLX Sliding door drive unit with pivoting mechanism that enables the sliding wing to be simultaneously lowered and pressed against the door frame during the closing motion.
  • Integrates Bluetooth wireless control technology and powerful, near silent drive into a very slender profile. System components are connected via a CANbus, 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.)

Water resistance:

IP20 rating.


24 V 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.

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.

Door panel weight (maximum):

120 kg.
