Electrical sensing edges for automatic gates, doors, public transport and industry

Electrical sensing edges from BBC Bircher Smart Access are used for protecting crushing and shearing points on automatic doors, gates and grids. Profiles of different sizes in combination with various switching devices protect people and objects safely and reliably according to the applicable standards.

They are based on the tried-and-tested principle of the drawing the contact strip into the rubber profile. Even with only minimal pressure, the conductive rubber profiles are pressed against one another and the opening pulse is forwarded to a switching device or a transmission system. The technical design ensures high reliability even in unusual applications.

More on the technology

Sensing edges on the folding door

ClickLine, CoverLine or StandardLine sensing edges, used in conjunction with a ExpertSystem XRF radio transmission system, provide optimum protection for the primary closing edge.

ClickLine – rubber profiles with click-fit foot

Easy installation is a defining feature of ClickLine: click and go. No need for time-consuming pulling in from the side. This means even damaged safety edges can be replaced quickly and effortlessly. The optimally designed profile shape also guarantees the greatest possible switching reliability.

CoverLine – rubber profiles for high visual requirements

The aluminium profile is covered by the lateral attachment principle. This results in a uniform appearance that blends very well even into challenging designs. CoverLine sensing edges are especially suitable for vertical installation, e.g. on sliding gates at site entrances, and for lengthy overtravel distances. 

StandardLine – rubber profiles with standard foot

StandardLine sensing edges offer a number of different profile types for a variety of applications. We would be delighted to show you all achievable designs on request.

S-Line – miniature sensing edge system

S-Line miniature sensing edges consist of various components that are combined to create a safety edge system. With the right components, systems like this are easy and quick to build, even by the user him/herself. This gives really great flexibility in terms of producing different types and lengths.
