Non-contact safety device
06 March 2014
Hörmann has developed its safety award winning Light Grille, non-contact safety device, for use with sectional doors. The new element can also be retrofitted into existing sectional door frames or alternatively housed in STL post sets made of weather resistant, anodised aluminium.
Contributing to the safe operation of high-speed doors, the Light Grille exceeds the requirements of BS EN 13241-1 and is claimed to virtually eliminate the risk of harm to pedestrians from fast action doors.
The design incorporate LEDs and sensors into the door frame, reducing the risk of safety being compromised by impact damage. The solid state equipment uses an array of light beams to constantly monitor the door opening to a height of 2.5m and will simply stop the door if any are broken.
