Sliding doors are elegant, sleek and modern, and their design further reduces the space they occupy in the place where they are located.
As a sort of partition between the kitchen and the living room, sliding doors are perfect, and if necessary, you can connect both rooms by simply removing the doors. Sliding doors can be used to decorate the front entrance to a building or room in a modern style, which will be an optimal and economical concept. Such doors are suitable if the wall has the necessary space to move the shutters. The door opens by a signal from a sensor (radar, IR sensor, contact mat) by an electric drive.
Modern radars are capable of determining the vector and speed of a person’s movement using a pair of video cameras. The door will not react if a person is in the sensor area, but moves parallel to the door plane, which excludes false triggering The sliding door also has a control panel or relay so that it can be opened if necessary.
The automatic door contains a registering photocell that detects the presence of a person or an object and does not give a signal to close the doors until the leaves are released. The electric drive drives the door leaves in accordance with the algorithm incorporated in the programmer. The programmer stores parameters such as the speed of opening or closing the doors, the speed of the electric motor, the time delay in the open position and the functions of the lock.
The traction drive of the automatic door has a gearbox that allows you to change the orientation of the belt from the horizontal to the vertical plane so that the door leaves move smoothly along the profile. If you decide to install an automatic corner door, then keep in mind that a standard registration photocell is useless, because there is no plane, and, in addition, it is necessary to think over the pairing of the doors and the casing so as not to reduce the thermal insulation of the doors. In addition to corner doors, there are also round or semicircular automatic doors, which are a particular type of segment doors. In such doors, the door leaf can be moved 180 degrees..
Telescopic automatic doors have two bearing profiles, the operator now controls not two, but four door leaves. Therefore, the opening does not open half the width, but only a third, because four out of the available six sashes move. In winter, the door can swing open and half of the opening, for this a “winter” operating mode is provided. By the way, now there are “wiser” doors on sale with a customized number of leaves for a specific passage. In such doors, when a person approaches, only the sashes necessary for his passage swing open.
For narrow openings, swing-sliding doors are perfect. Their flaps are fixed on consoles rotated by an electric drive. The floor rails have a 90 degree arc cut. Such doors can be opened manually from the inside like swing doors, and this is a big plus for fire safety..
Automatic doors use one or more leaves, and the profile is made of aluminum. For such doors, ready-made metal profile systems are made, suppliers can also produce their own aluminum profile systems, which are equipped with the necessary abutments and cutouts, pre-prepared guides and seals.
