Safety for doors... something new

Rapid Auto-roll doors are used for climate control and security, and will always require a satisfactory level of safety. Primarily, this is to protect people using the door, but also consideration must be given as to how to protect the door itself, since it is a valuable investment.

DMF International can offer a completely new and patented technology system, known as the EFA-SCAN®, designed and supplied by their principal, Efaflex. This is the first laser scanner worldwide to be used on a door, and carries out the tasks of activation and safety better than any other technology on the market. This innovation by EFAFLEX covers the entire area in front of the door without missing anything, and, by using intelligent direction recognition, it is more reliable than any other technology. Complex software algorithms prevent opening during rain, snow and extraneous light, and therefore the EFA-SCAN® is one of the few laser scanners which is also suitable for being installed outdoors. Emitting 16000 signals per second, the laser technology guarantees a split-second opening of your door, and this area of sensing is adjustable and can extend for almost 10m x 10m in front of the doorway.

Relating to the photo, the green area represents the safe area where any movement will keep the door open. The orange area is the activation area and can determine the direction of movement of traffic, so that only movement towards the door will activate the door. These zones are fully adjustable by simple programming, and the result is that the chances of the door being impacted by a forklift, or your personnel being injured, is reduced significantly.
