AC8000 Series

Side Acting Fire Door System

The AC8000 Series fire door systems are available in either manual or motor operated designs and can be provided with or without swinging egress doors. The units are made up of either 7-inch or 14-inch panels requiring a 9-inch or a 15 1/2-inch pocket profile, respectively.

The Safescape® AC8400, AC8500, AC8700, AC8800 and AC8900 fire door systems are ideal for any application where fire protection and emergency egress is needed and conventional swinging doors would not provide an adequate and desirable solution. The AC8200 and AC8600 can be used for any application where only fire protection is required and egress is not an issue.

Typical applications are: cross-corridor situations in schools and hospitals as well as area separations. They are ideal solutions for fire protection in area separation walls, occupancy separations, elevator lobby and corridor separations. The AC8000 Series fire door systems have become increasingly designed into casinos, museums and retail areas. This technology is the subject of US Patent Nos. 6,615,894 and 8,307,877.
