  • Publication number: 20200011102
    Abstract: A telescoping door system includes a header that spans across a doorway. A trailing jamb and a lead jamb disposed a clear opening distance from the trailing jamb defines a clear opening of the doorway. A sidelite panel is coupled to the trailing jamb by at least one swing clear hinge; the swing clear hinge comprises a fixed gear portion intermeshed with a revolving gear portion. A slow slide panel and a fast slide panel move linearly within the header. The slow and fast slide panels are configured to create a first-sized opening when positioned in the header. The sidelite panel, the slow slide panel, and the fast slide panel are configured to pivot out of the header in a breakout position such that a trailing rail of the sidelite panel is disposed at least partially outside the clear opening and in front of the trailing jamb.

  • Publication number: 20190244453
    Abstract: A door system is provided. The door system includes: a corridor sized to allow humans to move through the corridor, the corridor defined, at least in part by side walls, the corridor having a first end and a second end; a first door located at the first end, the first door configured to provide selective access between the corridor and a space outside of the corridor; a second door located at the second end, the second door configured to provide selective access between the corridor and a space outside of the corridor; and sensors configured to determine a direction of movement within the corridor, the sensors operatively connected to at least one of the first and second doors to cause at least one of the first and second doors to move to a closed position if any of the sensors detect a movement further than a threshold amount in an undesired direction.

  • Patent number: 10106176
    Abstract: A platform screen gate system having a tower, a gate secured to the tower. The gate is movable between an open position, to facilitate access to and from the platform, and a closed position, to block access to and from the platform. The system further includes at least one roller secured to the tower and a track secured to the gate. The track is supported by and movable on the least one roller such that the gate cantilevers from the tower and remains above the platform when the gate is moved between the open and closed positions.

  • Publication number: 20180291668
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a sliding door system including a motor, a driveshaft coupled to the motor, and a coupling mechanism fastened to the sliding door. The coupling mechanism is configured to convert rotation of the driveshaft into linear motion of the sliding door, such that movement of the coupling mechanism is directly correlated to movement of the sliding door. The sliding door system also includes a rotary encoder, a belt mechanically coupled to the coupling mechanism. The belt, as moved by the coupling mechanism, is configured to turn the rotary encoder as the sliding door moves, such that movement of the rotary encoder is directly correlated to movement of the sliding door and not directly correlated to movement of the motor and driveshaft.

  • Patent number: 7497050
    Abstract: A sliding door includes a frame comprising an elongated header member having a topwall, a backwall, an intermediate wall and a bottom wall. The bottom wall and intermediate wall are engageable with sliding door panel support rollers and the bottom wall and intermediate wall are interconnected by a separate support member to distribute door panel loads between such walls. A movable cover is attached to the header member by a hinge part including spaced apart flanges and projections co-operable with projections on the header member to support the cover in open and closed positions. The door operator is supported in the header member by a single angle-shaped frame member supporting a power supply, a controller and a door operator motor. An adjustable torsion bar assembly supports the door panel against sagging.
