The automatic Foris Index products are
CE certified following approval by authorised
bodies. In brief, the machinery directive requests that
all automatic products comply with set safety standards.
We will now list the main concepts in reference to these standards:
- Movement speed can differ
during opening and closure. With regard to opening, the
speed can be greater only if movement does NOT present
any hazards. Basically, the space used to open the door
must not restrict movement or cause harm to the operator.
The movement speed during closure must instead comply with set values based on the mass and speed itself. This means that during the closure phase if the door is subject to restricted movement, signifying there is an obstacle in the movement area, the door must stop without causing harm to the operator or objects. Therefore, it is easy to realise that a knock caused by a small sized door, that is with a reduced mass, is less vigorous than one caused by a large sized door, of greater mass, pushed by the same speed.
- Safety.All the doors supplied are fitted with
devices requested by certification, but often Foris Index provides further
safety features, such as the device on motor absorption, which activates when
motor absorption reaches well-defined values. This absorption can also be customised
from the command panel. As well as the above, further safety features are also
available and should be requested as optional, for example photocells, radar,
- The certification provided by Foris Index is of a “B” type,
meaning the manufacturer provides certification on the correct construction
of the machine. “A” type certification is issued
only after the correct assembly of the machine and must be issued by the assembler.
Basically, the machine is certified, but the manufacturer is NOT responsible
for its correct assembly, since this type of certification is issued by the
