Gilgen Door Systems – Setting New Standards in Door Automation

Gilgen have led the industry in setting new standards in door automation. High quality Swiss design and innovation combined with a meticulous eye for detail means their door systems offer unrivalled performance, durability, functionality and style. 

All Gilgen automatic doors are designed, manufactured and installed to EN16005 guidelines.

Samantha Thorpe, Sales & Marketing Co-ordinator for Gilgen Door Systems UK said:
"We know that everyone’s needs are different which is why we offer an extensive range of tailored systems that will suit any building design. 
"Whether you need just a single door system or lots of different doors, our knowledgeable specialists are on hand to give you the right advice.  Our automatic door range provides a solution to every challenge".

Burglar-Resistant Automatic Sliding Door

Gilgen's commitment to product development has led to the company to be the first to achieve Secured by Design approval for our PAS:24 2016 Sliding Security Door (top image). The door still uses their unique slim aluminium profile with an upgraded glazing specification and is available in a full range of design configurations.

Gilgen specialise in manufacturing and installing automatic doors into the following sectors- hospitals, care homes, colleges, retail, residential and offices.

Gilgen’s SL range of automatic security rated sliding door sets offer optimum resistance to break-in attempts whilst providing architecturally pleasing people flow solutions.  They are tested and certified to a selection of UK standards by BRE-LPCB and they also satisfy similar European security standards.

Fire-Rated Sliding Door

The Gilgen Ei30 fire-rated automatic sliding door (right) provides unique three in one functionality. A normal sliding door for everyday use, a flame-resistant fire door and a reliable emergency escape route. Tested to meet the requirements of European fire resistance standards EN1363-1 and EN1634-1.

Gilgen’s Ei30 resists flames and provides a thermal barrier for up to 30 minutes in full compliance with Part B of the Building Regulations. By dividing rooms into fire compartments, the systems delays the spread of fire and smoke giving pedestrians more time to escape and reduces damage to the property.

Reliable, Safe, Fire-resistant, Gilgen automatic sliding fire doors combine safety with day to day practicality.

  • Fire Prevention
  • Escape Routes
  • Upgrades

The optional “Total Open System” enables the door leaves to be swung open manually in an emergency to guarantee easy escape.  The emergency exit functionality can be set to operate permanently, or in the event of a fire alarm / mains power failure, this allows easy access for transport of bulky items throughout the year, making it ideal for summer events and or garages.  The Integrated closing mechanisms shut the door again after use to provide a reliable fire barrier.
