Safety features:

- Handrail enclosure:

A steel RHS handrail enclosure is supplied to protect the door bunch in the open position. Enclosures can also be used to mount push buttons, photocells and traffic lights. Posts are painted yellow for maximum visibility.

- Photocells:

A FAAC XP15W send/ receive photocell is fitted across the opening. The receiver unit is fitted with a long-life battery to avoid hard wiring. Photocells can be fitted for closing safety, opening safety, or a combination of opening and closing. If a closing safety beam is broken during the closing cycle, the door will automatically stop and re-open. If an opening safety beam is broken during the opening cycle, the door will automatically stop.

- Safety edges:

A full height wireless opto-electronic safety edge is mounted within the leading edge seal(s) of the door. An impact on the edge during closing will automatically stop and re-open the door.

A low-battery warning audible alarm will advise when the battery needs to be replaced.
