dormakaba Debuts Fire-Tested Battery Backup for Door Automation

dormakaba, an access control company, introduces its new fire-tested battery backup for uninterrupted power supply (ED UPS) to door automation (ED 100/250). Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden will be the first countries to start with the launch in April and May 2024.

The integrated battery backup offers continuous power supply in the event of a power failure. The rechargeable lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFEPO4) installation kit has been specifically developed for dormakaba’s ED 100/250 automatic swing door system. It reduces installation costs and minimizes the need for expensive cable runs to external units, the company says.

To address potential safety concerns, dormakaba says it has conducted extensive scientific testing to showcase that the battery does not contribute to fire spreading. Under demanding test conditions, the battery was integrated into an automatic door system on a fully equipped fire door and subjected to a worst-case scenario. The tests, carried out by the Swedish state research institute RISE, confirmed the safety and reliability of the solution, says the company.

“With the launch of the fire-tested battery backup, we have developed a competitive product that offers customers significant added value in terms of security and sustainability,” says Magin Guardiola, Chief Innovation Officer of dormakaba. “We are proud to offer this innovative solution and look forward to its positive reception in the global property management market.”
