The JLC Group has developed its own design and manufactured blast enhanced sliding door systems. They are 30% larger than other comparable systems and are intended for higher traffic levels, while providing the same level of protection as smaller door systems. They combine the convenience and functionality of fully automated, glazed sliding doors with fully tested blast proofing for optimum safety.
The JLC blast enhanced doors are smart, safe, and secure. They are designed to resist to intentional and accidental blasts, while reducing the significant hazards of shattered glass and other debris that can pose a risk to life. Additionally, the door system has been tested to the ISO 16933:2007 EXV25 standard, which is a structured procedure that determines the blast resistance of glazing and sets forth the required apparatus, procedures, specimens, requirements and guidelines for conducting arena blast tests.
The Manusa operator, for which JLC Automation has exclusive distribution rights in the UK, was used in the construction of the doors so that they are fully automated. The automatic sensors instantly detect any obstruction to immediately stop and reverse the doors and meet DDA requirements. They also meet all of the other relevant safety requirements, including BS EN 16005.
The doors can be installed at both new build and existing premises to improve protection, while giving an aesthetically pleasing look. It allows for high levels of blast protection as well as maintaining the appearance of the building entrance or façade.
Its unique design combines enhanced robust sliding door operators with a highly reinforced aluminium door system, which allows for maximum clear opening sizes beyond the capacity of any other comparable system. Furthermore, the entire profile has a large amount of flex that prevents the fracture of glass and warping in case of a blast.
