The growing trend of smart building increases the use of automated windows. These systems help optimize building performance and functionality. Laser sensors ensure complete safety by avoiding any contact with the window when closing.
BEA sensors ensure comfort and safety when they are used in either single or double wing swing doors. For restricted access, the Magic Switch combined with 4Safe safety sensors offer a discreet and safe solution.
With the Magic Switch, just one hand movement in front of the sensor activates the door. These contactless sensors are used for hygienic reasons. Additionally, The LZR®-Flatscan SW provides complete protection for swing doors: it covers the door wing and the hinge area.
For smaller industrial doors, IXIO-D INDUS monitors the area in front of the door to prevent any collision with people or objects, while also ensuring smart opening when staff are restocking shelves.
High speed doors are mainly used for unloading the daily arrival of goods. Efficiency, safety and speed are essential here. Industrial sensing solutions allow the doors to be opened when necessary, protect valuable resources around the door, protect the door itself and ensure the safety of everyone within the threshold.
Sliding doors are used in areas where people frequently pass through the door or stay close to the door. Side screen safety sensors protect people from coming into contact with the door leaves when opened (moving door leaves during the opening cycle).
In strategic locations, foot traffic counting helps retailers to provide a positive customer experience (i.e. improve the customer journey) and improve in-store operations (i.e. adapt staffing and product stocking). Based on laser technology, people counting sensors accurately and anonymously count people near the door. It is independent from light conditions and is the alternative to a camera-based people counter.
In retail, the availability of a door is crucial. Unwanted door activations can have a negative impact on a building’s energy performance. By adjusting the radar settings, the sensor provides pertinent opening of the door and allows energy savings. The safety function keeps the door open while people remain within the threshold with their trollies.
BEA sensors are integrated into guidance systems in order to detect people approaching and activate the opening of the system. In a retail environment, our radar sensors activate the system at the right time for everyone, even when pushing a trolley.
Barriers ensure safe traffic flow in car parks. The main objective is to open and close barriers quickly and safely. Laser scanner sensors offer a real alternative to induction loops because they prevent vehicles and pedestrians coming into contact with the boom whilst the barrier is closing.
Retailers aim to offer shoppers the best customer experience while optimising their own KPIs with respect to building performance and a safe environment. Within this environment, sensors are used to open doors only when needed, to control access and to ensure pedestrian safety.
Sensing solutions ensure the comfort and safety of people moving in, out, and through the store according to the EN16005 safety standard.
