2. Rollers-support, anti-riser and guide.
3. Door carrier hanger assembly, breakaway latch, limiting arm and door lock.
4. Air infiltration and intrusion protection equipment.
5. Nabco 24V DC “Brushless” power open/close operator with microcomputer control.
6. (Optional) Access Security Equipment
1a) Door panel(s) and sidelite(s) panel shall be factory assembled with 3/8"-16 threaded tie rods spanning full length of top and bottom rails. Snap-in glass stop with integral extruded vinyl standoff to accommodate glass flexing. A horizontal muntin bar to provide glass protection. Available in narrow stile 2-1/8” (51mm) or optional medium stile 4” (102mm).
Operator housing section shall be three piece construction 6-1/2” (165mm) by 7-1/2” (191mm) extrusion with end caps. All header sections shall have a minimum thickness of 0.140" (4mm) and shall be fabricated of 6063-T5 aluminum alloy.
Sidelite configuration shall be fixed, full breakaway or pocket type.
Finish: Aluminum shall have a standard finish of AA-M12-C22-A31 (204R1, clear) or AA-M12-C22-A44 (dark bronze). Black and special finishes available upon request.
Vertical jambs shall be of 1-3/4” (44mm) by 4-1/2” (114mm) extruded aluminum tubes. 1-3/4" (44mm) by 6-3/8" (162mm) for pocket type units. Optional framing available.
The door assembly shall ride on two 2-3/8" (60mm) dia. steel, urethane coated support rollers incorporating lubricated sealed ball bearings rated at 250 lbs. each. The door shall be held on the track by means of two 2-1/2" (64mm) anti-riser rollers. Lateral adjustment of the door assembly shall provide positive sealing at door edges. Door height shall be adjustable by 9/32" (7mm).
Fixed Sidelite Units - Each door shall include one guide assembly incorporating double rollers with sleeve bushings. Guide assembly shall be attached to the door with 10 gage (3mm) thick-formed guide bracket. All steel brackets and fittings shall be plated for corrosion resistance.
Full Open Units - Each door shall include one guide assembly incorporating one roller and guide piston riding in a surface or recessed floor track assembly.
Entrance systems shall have door panels attached to a door carrier hanger assembly by means of an adjustable support rod pivot assembly and corrosion resistant adjustable breakaway release latch holding panel in the closed position under normal automatic operation. The support rod pivot assembly allows the door panel to be broken outward at any point in the door’s opening or closing cycle allowing for safe emergency egress in compliance with NFPA 101 and ANSI A156.10. The door panel in the breakout mode disconnects the power to the control circuit inhibiting automatic door operation. The control circuit shall be resettable by re-engaging the door panel with the door carrier hanger assembly. Breakaway pressure shall be field adjustable from 5 to 50 lbs (22N to 222N) to meet local building code requirements but will be factory set at 50 lbs (222N) maximum.
Door assembly shall have a limiting arm to control the door as it swings in the direction of egress.
The active door will incorporate a two-point lock securing the lead stiles and door carrier hanger assembly. In the case of a single slider, the door is secured at the jamb and door carrier hanger assembly. The lock assembly will incorporate a key cylinder on the exterior and a thumb turn on the interior in accordance with NFPA 101.
Double pile weather-stripping on the lead edge of the sliding door(s) .36" thick (9mm) including the area of the lock.
11/16" (17mm) wide nylon brush weather-stripping on the vertical stile of both the sliding door panel(s) and sidelite(s) panels
11/16" (17mm) wide nylon brush weather-stripping mounted on door bottom.

Power Operator Control: Shall be a microprocessor unit. The microprocessor control shall allow the opening speed, closing speed
; back check speed and latch check speed each to be adjusted separately and independently from each other to meet specific site conditions. The control shall interact with door sensors via digital signals and if a sensor error occurs the control shall hold the door open. The doors shall be set to be held closed with the motor. The control system shall also be capable of providing transistor output signals at the door closed or door open positions to facilitate interaction with security and access control systems. It shall be capable of providing information on the number of operations and error codes for maintenance purposes. Adjustable opening and closing speeds shall be set in accordance with ANSI 156.10. All adjustments shall be specific and reproducible. Settings with rotary switches are not allowed.
Access Security Equipment: Shall consist of Gyro Tech 24 VDC power locking device. Lock shall be concealed in header. Sliding door shall be capable of being fitted with optional panic hardware equipment complete with concealed vertical rods. To facilitate smooth door operation lock release and engagement shall be governed by microprocessor control.
2.03 SENSOR DEVICES
A. Acusensor: Manufactured by NABCO ENTRANCES, INC.
Sensors for door activation and threshold sensing shall provide a rectangular shaped pattern with a sensing area next to the door system. To provide optimum coverage to meet specific site conditions the sensing pattern shall be adjustable both in width and depth of coverage while remaining at a full power setting. Units shall be supplied and installed on both sides of the operator housing to activate doors for single or two-way traffic. Units shall be sealed for protection against dust and moisture. An optional rain cover shall be available for sensors directly exposed to the elements.
B. Acumotion: Manufactured by NABCO ENTRANCES, INC.
Sensors for door activation and threshold sensing shall provide a rectangular shaped pattern with a sensing area next to the door system. To provide optimum coverage to meet specific site conditions the sensing pattern shall be adjustable both in width and depth of coverage while remaining at a full power setting. Acumotion uses two technologies for activation and presence sensing. The activation is achieved by Doppler microwave for long range sensing. Presence sensing is achieved by active-infrared. Unit shall have separate outputs for microwave and infrared signals. Sensors combining both microwave and infrared signals on one output shall not be allowed. Units shall be supplied and installed on one or both sides of the operator housing to activate doors for single or two-way traffic. Units shall be sealed for protection against dust and moisture. An optional rain cover shall be available for sensors directly exposed to the elements.
