Sliding Doors are commonly found in grocery stores, airports and retail shops. The primary uses of sensors on sliding doors are to ensure safety, provide activation and enhance overall accessibility. Sliding Door sensors also help meet the ANSI 156.10 standards created to protect the people and objects passing through a door. When Sliding Doors are outfitted with BEA sensor technology, both pedestrian safety and traffic flow are maximized.
By combining activation and safety into a single sensor, these dual technology solutions maximize pedestrian safety and accessibility while reducing installation time. Our cutting-edge sensors are easy to install, setup and operate with on-board LCD and visible alignment spots.
In applications with preexisting methods of activation, infrared presence sensors are extremely effective safety solutions. These sensors can be used in conjunction with an activation sensor to protect key areas around the door during the opening and closing cycles.
Motion sensors utilizing microwave technology create a reliable and effective means of activation for sliding doors. As this technology can distinguish between approaching and departing traffic, these unidirectional sensors help improve a facility’s energy savings.
Touchless actuators increase accessibility, help meet building codes and standards associated with automatic pedestrian sliding doors, while helping to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria in facilities such as hospitals.
Wireless activation devices help to enhance accessibility and allow for reduced installation time. Handheld transmitters are available for a convenience method of on-demand activation.
