Revolving doors are used for main entrances. The challenge is to enhance the availability of doors while maintaining the higher level of safety. According to the EN 16005, the front leading edge requires a high level of safety for the users whatever the conditions (rain, snow,..).
Independent from its environment, the Flatscan REV generates 400 measurement points to provide complete protection for users while ensuring the effective functioning of the door.
Sliding doors are generally used in areas with a high flow of people where the availability of a door is crucial. Unwanted door activations can have a negative impact on the energy performances of buildings.
Unidirectional radar technology provides pertinent opening because the sensor ignores traffic moving away from the door, reduces hold-open time and saves energy. Combined with a three-dimensional infrared curtain, the sensors protect people from any contact with the doors.
In hospitals, it is essential to have convenient access for everyone to maintain an efficient flow of people. Microwave sensors provide smooth and comfortable opening for persons with reduced mobility and hospital staff carrying their materials, while infrared sensors protect people from any contact with the doors.
In hospitals, it is key to ensure an efficient people flow while not compromising on hygiene and durability. Leading edge safety extends the detection field to the hinge area. In the hinge area, the precision of the Flatscan laser sensor can detect the user’s finger. This offers an alternative to less hygienic mechanical finger protections.
Hermetic sliding doors have been specifically designed for areas where hygiene and control of air leakage are critical. Cleanroom settings require the integrity of a sterilized environment. The door activation can be made by a virtual push button to maximize accessibility and eliminate the risk of contamination.
From the entrance area to the waiting room, patients, clinicians and visitors can be exposed to harmful germs and bacteria. 80% of infectious diseases are spread by hand. By removing traditional door handles and automating doors with touchless activation, the risk of contamination decreases sharply.
In hospitals, high-speed doors are mainly used in storage areas where efficiency, safety and speed are essential. Industrial sensing solutions allow doors to be opened when necessary, protect valuable resources close to the door and ensure the safety of the users staying in the threshold.
Parking barriers ensure a safe traffic flow in car parks. Laser scanner sensors are used to activate the barrier opening for vehicles only. They prevent any contact of the boom with vehicles or other users whilst the barrier is closing. Moreover, they offer a real alternative to induction loops by saving time during installation.
In the healthcare environment, a wide variety of automatic systems are available, such as automatic doors, barriers, high-speed doors, automated windows…
Hospitals are more impacted by regulations than other public facilities and BEA help meet these standards. Sensing solutions ensure the comfort and safety of people moving in, out, and through a hospital according to the EN16005 safety standard.
Used by everyone throughout a hospital, doors can be a major source of contamination and infection if not specified correctly. Sensing solutions can play a key role in meeting hygiene requirements.
