Door systems

BIDS-S – Single-leaved swinging/sliding doors

The BIDS® swinging/sliding doors with BIDS-S drive system are secure, robust, and reliable. They are available with sandwich or all-glass door leaves.

For decades, they have proven themselves in passenger service on trams, and regional trains, and high-speed trains. The all-electric systems can be configured according to customer requirements. 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 as well as in the all-glass door leaf – controlled via our latest generation of BODE door control units. The LED lights are integrated in the primary closing edge and are easy to replace.
