Automatic swing door operator conceals components in floor

August 11, 2010


              
        
With a floor-installed, sealed compartment for its electrical and mechanical components, the new ED400-IG Automatic Operator from DORMA Entrance Systems is ideal for glass doors in all-glass storefronts as well as other swing door applications that demand clean aesthetics.


The unobtrusive placement of the ED400-IG’s components also make the product suitable for uniquely shaped doors – such as arched, irregular or historically accurate configurations – that would be difficult to accommodate with conventional overhead automatic hardware.

Compatible with new construction and retrofit applications, the ED400-IG operator features a remarkably compact 32” x 6” x 7” deep compartment that’s recessed in a weatherproof steel container and secured in the floor. The operator’s robust drive unit can accommodate doors up to 800 pounds. The drive directs energy to the door’s pivot in a rotating motion. This enables a consistent, smooth opening and closing action.

Appropriate for ADA-compliant applications, the ED400-IG can operates in a low energy mode,and offers functionality such as push & go, power close and a lock interface. Extended hubs for terrazzo or other special flooring requirements are also available.
