Vertical door

  • Reliable, early object detection thanks to flexible adjustments on the detector
  • Microwave motion detectors with direction recognition keep the gate open only as long as necessary
  • No unintentional opening thanks to cross traffic masking

Detectors for vertical doors

Various detector components are available for opening and closing your vertical doors safely.

BBC Bircher Smart Access offers you a comprehensive range of gate detector systems. Tried-and-tested loop detectors can be used to activate vertical doors, although a microwave motion detector such as the Hercules 2s is ideally suited to this task, too. Electrical sensing edges are just the thing for the primary closing edge. They provide people and vehicles with the best possible protection against being crushed or trapped in the gate.
