HM-F FT escape route sliding door
Guaranteed escape route even when door is locked
When combined with the appropriate technical equipment, sliding doors can be used in escape routes in day mode. Buildings such as hotels, airports, hospitals as well as residential care homes for the elderly and disabled must also always guarantee a means of escape in night mode. Up till now, sliding doors were not approved as escape doors when locked in night mode. GU group has designed the first sliding door to be approved as escape door even when locked. The type-tested HM-F FT escape route sliding door provides the solution with an intelligent double function: when the escape door control unit is actuated, the sliding door becomes a swing door and the sliding panels can be swung out in the escape direction even when a load is applied to the door leaves. This means the escape route sliding door guarantees a safe escape route.
Fulfils both directives and architectural visions
The escape route sliding door HM-F FT guarantees the availability of rescue routes while also securely closing the building – all in one door element without having to install another escape door. This gives architects and planners more freedom when designing prestigious entrances that must comply with the AutSchR (German directive governing automatic sliding doors in rescue routes), EltVTR (German directive governing electrical locking systems on doors in escape routes), and also DIN 18650 and EN 16005.More details
