Gilgen SLX sliding door operators are designed, constructed and installed to satisfy BS EN 16005:2012, and are tested for one million cycles, providing proven reliability. The operators also comply with Building Regulations (E&W) Approved Documents B and M of the Building Regulations (England and Wales), The Equality Act 2010 and BS 8300:2009.

The thermally insulated PSW profile system has been successfully tested in accordance to BS EN 14351-2 thereby enabling energy efficient automatic doors that not only enable very low U-values (1.5 W/m²K) to be achieved but also provide air permeability Class 2 in accordance with BS EN 12207 and Class 5A water tightness in accordance with BS EN 12208.

SLX / PSW are suitable for high volume, heavy duty, retail trade, hotels, offices, airports, stations, hospitals, schools, colleges, garden centres and leisure.

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

Standard product features

Drive system:

SLX-M sliding door drive system integrates Bluetooth wireless control technology and a powerful, near silent drive into a very slender in 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.)


24V 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.

Door weight:

  • Single sliding doors: 1 x 150 kg.
  • Bi-parting doors: 2 x 250 kg.

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.


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 BS EN 16005.
  • 2.5 m high, fully glazed pocket screen complying with BS EN 16005.


  • D Bedix hard wired programming key pad (incorporating digital display screen) designed for installation in a central control panel. Configured for automatic/ manual/ night/ exit/ open door operating modes.
  • Portable Bedix wireless control unit designed to enable selection of operating modes (as per D Bedix) and configure parameters. Simple menu based controls. No fixed location required. Password protected.
  • Kombi D Bedix, push button control (as standard D Bedix) incorporating additional security key to prevent unauthorized access.
  • F Key: Multi user, compact programmable portable unit enabling restricted personnel access.
  • Six position key switch. Single point door control but with NO fault identification.


Additionally, the door allows for fitting of door position switches, fire or smoke alarm signals, voice message systems to assist partially sighted people and integrates with access control systems.

Door movement guide:

Surface mounted fixed point guide enhances efficiency of door movement.

Recessed floor track:

Helps further improve door security as well as improved weather sealing and resistance to strong winds and driving rain.
