Product details

Our sliding doors are ideal for bacterial contamination controlled environments.
They can be easily installed on prefabricated systems and on any other type of wall. There are two versions available, an airtight version or a hermetically sealed version. The sliding doors can be operated either automatically - using electromechanical components (with control, regulation and monitoring systems suitable for the application requirements) - or operated manually using handles.

Airtight Sliding Doors
The leaf of this type of door moves in a horizontal direction only. It is sealed vertically by seals installed on the leaf that rest against vertical profiles mounted on the door frame, whilst the upper and lower seals on the two horizontal edges of the leaf slide next to the horizontal profile of the door frame and the surface of the floor.

Hermetically Sealed Sliding Doors
with Class 4 air permeability certification in accordance with EN12207

The sliding leaf of the door becomes hermetically sealed against the edge profile of the door opening during the final closing stage by a combined sliding, vertical and inward movement. The leaf approaches the frame and the floor surface with a stroke of up to 20 mm and an inclination of 45°. The special design of the support and trolley guide enables the vertical and inward movements to be performed without the need for additional actuators. The hermetic seal, both on the door frame and the floor, is achieved by the compression of special seals installed on the perimeter of the leaf profile. At the bottom of the leaf, the specially shaped profile slides on two guide points that help to improve the hermetic seal.

Controls and Safety Devices:
The door can be equipped with large elbow push-buttons, monitored sensors in accordance with EN16005, a back-up battery unit for opening the door in an emergency in the case of a power failure and a program selector.

The FHE door is compliant with the following EC directives:

  • Machinery Directive: 2006/42/EC
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive: 2014/30/EU
  • RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU
