Door systems

The BIDS® swinging/sliding door systems

with BIDS-3 drive system; more compact, lighter, and quieter. Available with sandwich door leaf or all-glass door leaf.

The BIDS® swinging/sliding doors have been tried and tested for decades on trams, metros, and regional trains in passenger service. Thanks to consistent further development, the system has unique features, (e.g., with regard to the guide system and the locking mechanism). The sandwich (SW) construction of the door leaf allows different window shapes to be achieved. Excellent thermal and sound insulation values are achieved by using additional insulating materials. With our all-glass door leaf, we strive for consistent lightweight construction. The design of the glass area can be freely configured by the customer. LED lighting can be used in both the sandwich door leaf and in the all-glass door leaf – controlled via our latest generation of BODE door control units. The LED strips are integrated in the primary closing edge and are easy to replace.
