DMF International has released the Auto BiFLEX door, an automated biparting door, comprised of PVC strips that open to either side. Unlike conventional strip doors and swing doors there is therefore no impact contact of the PVC, extending the door’s life.
It has an opening speed of about 1.3m/s, with an adjustable hold open time for automatic closing. The PVC panels are 300mm wide with a 100mm overlap, providing easy pedestrian access even when closed.
Full opening height is available as soon as the door starts to open. The door can accommodate openings that are up to 10m wide or with gantry beams passing through the opening.
It may remain closed for pedestrian thoroughfare, adding to the preservation of the operating environment. There is no chance of injury during its closing cycle. It offers end position-damping control for accurate slow down of door movement and has an inbuilt uninterrupted power supply, allowing it to continue operating after a power failure.
