Automatic swing door operator(s) furnished and installed shall be of type(s) and size(s) specified and as indicated on plans and door schedule.
MANUFACTURED DOOR UNITS:
Style A700: Surface Applied
Operator with Connecting Arms: The operator header shall be mounted to the
surface of the existing door frame or wall. Connecting hardware shall be a
double arm arrangement that can either push the door or pull the door open to
suit the job condition. When the operator mounting is on the pull side and
adjacent wall is within 4" (101.6 mm) of the door frame, specify a parallel
The Electric Operating Mechanism shall be Style A700 Swing E-Z.
operator shall be shock mounted and concealed in an extruded aluminum 4" x
6" (102 mm x 152.4 mm) side access header extending the full width of door
or a minimum 22" (558.8 mm) in length.
operator shall be convertible to any hand required. Opening force shall be
accomplished by a 1/15
master control unit shall incorporate an adjustable time delay of 1 to 99
seconds (ANSI A156.19 requirement is 5 second minimum time delay). It shall
provide infinite adjustment to opening and back check speeds including adjusting
the opening force without affecting the opening speed. The master control unit
shall provide for immediate reversal of door motion without undue strain on the
drive train by supplying stepped voltage to the motor. The door shall reverse
when closing if an object stops the door. A locked door motor protection circuit
will be supplied that will limit current to the motor if it is applied when the
door is inadvertently locked or otherwise prevented from opening.
OPERATION: Automatic and/or Manual:
1. Automatic: Pushbutton switch actuates door open; door closes after time delay expires. Operator to include the following variable adjustments so as to comply with ANSI Standard A156.19: Opening speed ‑ 4 to 6 seconds; Closing speed ‑ 4 to 6 seconds.
and closing force, measured 1" (25.4 mm) out from the lock stile of the
door, not to exceed 15 pounds (67 N) of force to stop the door when operating in
Manual: Push-To-Open: Manually pushing door activates automatic opening cycle;
closes after time delay expires. Time delay for manual push-to-open operation to
be independetly adjustable from 1-99 seconds.
ACTIVATING DEVICE: Shall be marked Press to Open and located on each side
opening as per ANSI Safety Standard A117.
1. Option: 6' x 6" QSE Antimicrobial flat switch.
Option: Push plate: 4-1/2” Diameter (114.3 mm) round, stainless steel switch.
RELATED WORK REQUIREMENTS
ELECTRICAL: 120 VAC, 60 cycle, 1 phase, 15 amp. Two low-voltage wires
shall be furnished to connect push button/plate switch to the operator.
MATERIALS, FINISHES AND FABRICATION
EXTRUDED ALUMINUM: ASTM B221, 6063-T5 alloy and temper, anodized:
Structural Header Sections: Minimum 1/8" (3 mm) thickness; capable
of self-support of transom glass above.
