Sliding door

The most beautiful entrances in the world can be fascinating design challenges. Architects aim to find the perfect balance of color, glass, and metal. For some, including an automatic sliding door is a must. The ultimate goal, designing for elegance and functionality all at the same time.

The record 5200 Series Sliding Door System is a perfect choice for architects who want a visually pleasing system that is also seamlessly functional. This elegant door system removes unsightly framing members to provide an expansive viewed opening. It also offers a wide breadth of functions and configurations. What’s more, it can be painted, clad or specially anodized to match most specified storefronts.

At Cressy Door and Fireplace, we find the record 5200 series to be an ideal solution for museums, auto dealerships and other locations that demand elegance. We also believe it is the most safe, secure, and attractive entranceway on the market today.

Here are some of the options that make the record 5200 series best in breed:

Operating Modes

  • Automatic mode with full opening width
  • Automatic mode with reduced opening width
  • Automatic mode in one-way (exit only) for traffic control
  • Adjustable reduced opening mode
  • Continuously open: door opens and remains in open position; either full open or reduced opening width
  • Off mode: door can be moved by hand

Safety Functions

  • Safety sensors: (self-monitoring holding beams) in the clear opening of the door prevent the door from shutting if persons or objects are in the detection zone.
  • Automatic reversing mechanism: if the door leaves are inhibited when closing, they are immediately re-opened (automatic reverse 2-step adjustable). If the door leaves are hindered when opening, they are immediately stopped.
  • Power failure: In the case of power failure, the emergency fail close or the emergency opening is assured by the optional emergency power options.
  • Sidelite protection: additional sensors located above the opening path of the door will slow the opening if a person or object will inhibit the door opening normally.


  • Clear line of site unhindered by vertical stiles
  • Single slide or bi-part packages available
  • For use with 1/2″ tempered glass
