automatic folding doors
Folding doors are necessary when the full width of entrance has, if possible, to be used. They are simple to retrofit, and integrate well into existing entrances. Typical applications for the record FTA 20 can be found in gastronomy, in the passage to the pantry, for example, or from the kitchen to the dining area, but a recent trend is to use the door to implement no smoking laws by separating non smokers from newly set up “smoking lounges”.
A special feature is the optional «break-out» function (FBO), permitting the record FTA 20 to be used as an escape door in accordance with local conditions and regulations. As with the TOS (Total Opening System) of our automatic sliding doors, the FBO enables swing doors to function as emergency exits by opening in the direction of escape as quickly as possible.
