Looking for the right presence detector? You will find what you need at GEZE

Comfortable, accessible – and, of course, secure: These are the characteristics you naturally expect from automatic doors. As the operator of an automatic door, you are responsible for ensuring people can pass in and out of the door safely. Good thing there are sensors that detect promptly when something or someone nears the door using radar or infrared technology. Depending on whether the door is opening or closing at the time, the process is immediately stopped, or the passage is released again directly.

Reliable sensors for added safety

A presence detector is an ideal choice for anyone seeking optimal protection for an automatic swing door or sliding door. Especially since traffic safety requirements under European standard EN 16005 specify that sensors must be used to prevent crushing, shearing and impacts while the door opens and closes. GEZE offers a wide variety of products in this area: We would be happy to help you select the right presence detector for your needs.

There are four overarching categories to select from:

  • Sensor strips are moving sensors, and have active infrared rays that monitor the travel range of an automatic swing door.
  • Laser scanners – also moving sensors – cover the primary and secondary closing edge in their range, in addition to the travel range for swing doors.
  • Active infrared detectors protect secondary closing edges, and can also be used for activation. They offer highly flexible adjustment options thanks to integrated configurations.
  • Combined detectors, which are suitable for sliding doors, combine a radar movement detector with an infrared light curtain. They ensure that the automatic sliding door opens at the right time and does not touch the user.

We offer a variety of options for each of these sensor models to precisely meet your stipulations. We would be happy to advise you on which one to select.

Four questions to select the right presence detector
