Sensing edges provide entrapment protection for motor-operated doors by offering an auto reverse or auto stop feature. The Bottom Sensing Edge stops and reverses the door upon contact with an obstruction.
Attached to the leading edge of motor-driven doors, our electrically activated sensing edges offer the most reliable reversing feature available. Our exclusive construction contains two completely flexible, conductive contact elements separated by perforated foam. When touch-activated, the soft foam cushion inside the sensing edge compresses, causing the internal contacts to meet and immediately send an electrical signal to stop or reverse the motor.
As an added feature, the sensing edge provides a secure, weather-tight seal and conforms to the floor surface. Sensing edges allow for added safety and peace of mind.
The Bottom Sensing Edge is available for the following commercial door operators:
