Reliability even in cold environments
Cold environments - Proven reliability of swing door operators
Swing door operators are characterised by their reliable performance, which makes them energy efficient with a high level of user convenience. However, extremely low temperatures may have a negative effect on their reliability. The viscosity of the hydraulic fluid within the electrohydraulic operators rises, which increases the resistance within the hydraulic system. Therefore the opening and closing speed decreases and the door may not close properly. As a result, precious energy is wasted as the climate barrier between the interior and exterior of the building is no longer provided.
This results in:
- Energy loss from open doors
- Decelerated opening and closing cycles
- Temperature related adjustments required
The video proof
Reliable even north of the Arctic Circle.
This practical example proves: Even the extreme cold weather in the north of Sweden does not impair ED 100 and ED 250 technology. Location: Jukkasjärvi, Lapland, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Every year, selected artists build the world-famous “Icehotel” in this location. A cool location packed with art and adventure. It stands to reason that such a special location may only be equipped with intelligent technology. Therefore an electromechanical swing door operator from our ED 100/250 series provides the "Royal Deluxe Suite" with maximum user convenience. Despite an interior temperature of only -8 °C, the operator moves the door smoothly and ensures reliable closing behaviour.
