Double Sliding Door – Ideal for commuting and feed operations in two locations

----------------------------------------------------------------------
The first thing you should do is, figure out the function of the door and the characteristics of the surroundings. Often, a door chosen is not suitable for the environment or takes up too much space. The choice largely depends on the purpose: Will the door serve as a passage for staff, material entrance/exit, or for some other function? However, sliding doors should not normally be used as emergency exit doors, because some people might not be able to open the door fast enough if panicking.

 

When is the double sliding door the right choice?

All Axelent’s doors fulfill the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC’s requirements for movable guards.

The range of safety doors includes the double sliding door. This type of door is ideal when there is a lack of space and if you want to perform feed operations in two different locations with the same door. A double sliding door can be used when there is no space to open the door like a normal passage door.

The two door leaves run separately in two different rails and overlap. This is useful especially if there are two feed or output positions in a machine. Despite the limited space, it is possible to operate in two locations.

The advantage of all the doors in the X-Guard series - also the double sliding door - is that you do not need any specific panels for the door. In a simple way, it is possible to turn a fixed wall into a sliding door.
