A higher standard of security from Gilgen Automatic Doors


Gilgen Door Systems has launched a new range of burglar-resistant automatic sliding doors designed to target harden buildings from the threat of break-in, theft and criminal attack. The Gilgen SLX- RC (Resistance Class) automatic door is one of the first to have passed the latest EN1627 (2011) European burglar resistance standard.

Gilgen Door Systems commissioned the highly acclaimed German testing institute TÜF Nord to test two of their models; the SLX RC2 and SLX RC3 automatic door. Equipment such as crow bars, club hammers and drills were used to try and force the Gilgen doors open over a sustained time period without success. The doors also withstood static loads (RC2 = 3000 N / RC3 = 6000 N) and also successfully passed the dynamic impact test with a pendulum weight of 50 kg.

David Cerquella, Managing Director at Gilgen Door Systems says
. “We are absolutely delighted to have passed the European burglar resistance standard with the Gilgen SLX – RC range and look forward to offering customers a higher level of security for their entrance systems.”
Buildings used by high value retailers, Government departments, banks, forecourts, pharmacies and other commercial operations can now benefit from the enhanced security of the Gilgen SLX- RC doors helping to reduce the risk of break-in and theft. Additionally, loss prevention and reduced insurance premiums resulting from the enhanced security will provide a good return on investment.

The Gilgen SLX – RC can be installed as a single or bi-parting door system, with or without glazed panels. A Gilgen Fluveri® multipoint locking mechanism is fitted as standard and the door set provides easy, convenient and hygienic access when in normal operation. The elegant profiles of the Gilgen SLX – RC mean there is no difference in appearance from a standard automatic door and it will therefore suit any building facade without compromising the overall aesthetic design.
