Unit opens and closes electrically while deadlocking in each direction. If stopped in mid-travel, the door is fixed and non-movable. Unit may be instantly reversed. Door blockage will not cause motor damage. Door pressure is adjustable from approximately 40 lbs. Emergency release allows  the door to be free-wheeling.


The RP-3500 corridor operator is a motorized sliding door device providing electrical opening and closing of a corridor door. The door is powered by means of push buttons or a selector switch. When the door is opened or closed, it may be stopped in mid-travel. During that period, the door is virtually non-movable. Force applied to the door during movement will stall the door, but the motor is not back-drivable. The door may also be instantly reversed without any harm to the mechanism. Upon fully opening or closing, the door is locked at two concealed points at the vertical lock column. The locking rod is also fully deadlocked preventing the rod from being manipulated. No locking components are exposed. During a power loss, the RP-3500 may be mechanically released by key, at which point the door is freewheeling. The RP-3500 corridor operator has been rigorously tested to over 500,000 cycles.
