A security enhanced automatic door from Gilgen Door Systems has become the first of its kind to have been assessed to conform to the security requirements of PAS 24:2012. The Gilgen SLX-M RC3 automatic sliding door system was assessed by UKAS approved EXOVA WarringtonFire, translating existing test evidence to support conformity to PAS 24.
Government buildings, commercial outlets and premises with a high risk of break-in or attack, such as banks and jewellers require an entrance that is both secure and stylish. With its slim aluminium profiles, Gilgen SLX-M RC2-3 automatic doors offer a design that is remarkably strong and yet invitingly transparent. Rob Archer, National Technical Manager at Gilgen Door Systems explains “In addition to the slim door profile design; the automatic locking, reinforced safety glass and flush bottom guide rails help ensure effective break-in protection without loss of appearance. With SLX-M RC3, specifiers now get the best of both worlds – improved access and convenience for end-users, whilst meeting the security requirements of PAS 24:2012.”
Gilgen SLX-M RC2-3 also fulfils the new series of European break-in prevention standards EN 1627 – EN 1630 and is fully tested to DIN 18650. The system is available with single or bi-parting sliding doors and can be attached to the door lintel or wall. RC2-3 is configured with a wide range of options such as glazed overhead panels, a range of surface finishes and a choice of door activation and safety elements depending on the application. A unique ‘Fluveri’ multi-point locking mechanism integrated into the door leaf can also be selected to provide even higher levels of protection.
