Home > Companies > Gilgen Door Systems UK Ltd > EI30 Fire Rated Automatic Sliding Door System

The EI30 fire rated automatic sliding door system provides convenient, barrier-free access in day-to-day situations, while offering robust flame protection and easy entry for the emergency services in the event of a fire. The system can be used to divide rooms into compartments providing reliable fire protection along with a heat-shield for up to 30 minutes. If a fire alarm is activated, the automatic sliding fire-door can be opened manually like a conventional swing door in order to provide an emergency exit. Built-in closing mechanisms ensure that the door shuts again to provide a fire barrier once it has performed its emergency-exit function.

All equipment is installed by Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) accredited engineers.

Standard product features

Door profile:

73 mm thick.

Door panel weight:

  • Standard SLX drive: 2 x 120 kg.
  • Standard SLX drive with booster: 2 x 150 kg.
  • SLX V drive with dual motors: 2 x 240 kg.

Drive system:

EI30 sliding door drive system integrates Bluetooth wireless control technology and a powerful, near silent drive into a slender profile. System components are connected via a can-bus, which not only guarantees smooth and reliable operation, but also facilitates constant communication with the processor to ensure optimum operational safety.


  • Combined presence and activation sensing devices ensure door opening distances are in accordance with BS EN 16005, prevent doors closing on pedestrians within the threshold area and provide a signal to the door control system, thereby optimising pedestrian safety.
  • Rear edge sensors (electro sensitive protection equipment, ESPE) complying with BS EN 16005 are located within the door operator to maintain back of door safety and protect pedestrians against crushing edges at the main closing edge.
  • Fail-safe system (battery back-up) enables up to 30 minutes operation (subject to use) in the event of a mains failure. The fail safe system is automatically tested at least once every 24 hours.
  • Fire alarm interface connection enables door leaves to fail safe to open in the event of an emergency. In compliance with BS EN 16005 door sets with a clear opening width of up to 2000 mm open by at least 80% within 3 seconds after activation by the activators in the escape direction (or within 5 seconds in the event of the loss of power).


24 V DC motor with microprocessor controller which allows extensive options for opening width, electric locking, summer/ winter modes, exit only, manual control, speed of opening and the length of time the door is open.

Power requirements:

230 V single phase. A 13 A live neon-lit fused spur supply, protected by a 30 mA RCD must be provided prior to installation. In order to comply with BS EN 16005 the mains connection must be capable of disconnection to prevent unintentional and unauthorised reactivation.



- Width (maximum):

  • Single sliding door: 1600 mm.
  • Bi-parting sliding door: 3200 mm.

- Height:

In compliance with BS EN 16005 door leaves (or door set leaves and side screens) are capable of being broken out from any position in the direction of escape. The total force to release the break out function does not exceed 220 N.

Rear door safety:

Several options are available, subject to installation considerations. Please consult the manufacturer. The options available are;

  • 900 mm high, firmly secured, solid glazed barrier, in accordance with BSEN 16005.
