Door sensor adds extra protection
Nabco Entrances of Muskego, Wis., has added a new door mounted sensor for low energy doors to its Acugard line of swing door sensors. The Acugard 3 LE adds extra pedestrian protection to low energy swing doors. It is a bar type sensor that can be mounted on the approach side of the door to prevent it from closing on slower moving traffic, such as the elderly or handicapped, until they are through the entrance and completely out of the path of the door. The sensor can be mounted on the swing side to stop the door from opening if someone is in the swing path while a pedestrian is approaching.
The Acugard 3 LE handles AC or DC power sources allowing seamless interface with Gyro Tech’s low energy, ADA GT 710 and GT 500 swing doors and the low energy equipment of other manufacturers. Multiple time delay settings allow installers to adjust for the varying requirements of the application such as hold open time. The detection pattern depth is adjustable and allows optimization of door performance. The sensor enhances the performance of low energy doors making them more user-friendly while exceeding the ANSI/BHMA standard for safety.
The Acugard 3 System for full power doors is available consisting of two Acugard 3 door mounted sensors, and one header mounted Acumotion A sensor. Other sensors available from Nabco include the Acuvision Learning Sensor System, the Acumotion A Microwave/ Infrared Hybrid Sensor and the versatile Acusensor 1B for slide, swing or folding doors.
Gyro Tech is the brand name of automatic entrance systems that Nabco Entrances offer. The company manufactures complete entrance systems including advanced sensors, automatic sliding, swing and folding doors, many of which are available in hurricane-rated versions and designed to comply with the High Velocity Hurricane Zone of the Florida Building Code.
