This specification covers the design, manufacture, and testing of controls and operating mechanisms for use with sliding doors.
Sliding door control system shall be classified as manual and power. Manual door control system requires the operator to
apply a continuous cyclic force to the door controller to cause the operating mechanism to function.
This type of control system has two kinds: mechanical system and hydraulic system. The power door control system requires only that the operator exert a minimal physical force to cause the operating mechanism to function.
This type of control system has three kinds: electric system,hydraulic system and electro-hydraulic system. Sliding door shall be provided with a means of local and remote manual operation.
Sliding doors slide on bottom rollers so there is no visible suspension track. The rollers run in a choice of bottom channels to give a minimum step, or can be sunk into the floor to give a flush finish.
