Sliding Explosion Proof Doors in Action

Explosion Proof Solutions


The Over-Center is Air-Lec's most popular explosion proof door opener for heavy duty sliding doors. The design uses a pneumatic piston in the center to slide doors smoothly across their tracks.  This operator is available for doors up to 6 feet wide and can handle weight up to 1,200lbs. 


The Inertia operator is a compact, two-fisted operator that uses one arm to quickly slide large doors, then gently but firmly slows the motion with the other arm.  The Inertia operator is used on the heaviest of explosion proof doors up to 30 feet wide.
