Detectors for folding doors

Microwave motion detectors and loop detectors from BBC Bircher Smart Access activate your automatic folding door reliably.

While microwave motion detectors sense practically every movement, thus triggering an opening pulse at the gate, the loop detector switches when it recognises metallic vehicles. 

We recommend mounting electrical safety edges on the closing edges to protect against being trapped or crushed. The ExpertSystem XRF wireless radio transmission system has proven itself in the field of wear-free data transmission. This combination of components ensures that optimum safety is achieved in the area around your folding door.
