BEA's Wireless Panther Series Integrates Push Plate and Activation in One

Pittsburgh, Pa. (August 11, 2005) - B.E.A., Inc. (BEA), the world's leading manufacturer of sensors for automatic doors, introduces the Panther Series door activation push plates. The wireless units install quickly to provide reliable, attractive activation of swinging, bi-fold, low energy, and rolling industrial doors.

The Panther push plate arrives as a fully assembled unit, with an integrated wireless RF 433 transmitter. This patent-pending design eliminates the need to purchase the plate and transmitter separately and then install each at the service site. Consequently, the Panther can be installed easily using a quick plate mounting kit or a standard two- or four-bolt gang box.

The Panther features an all-active plate design that triggers the door regardless of what part of the faceplate is pressed. Fully waterproof construction withstands the elements for outdoor installation. A tamper-resistant design helps to ensure continual operation in any setting.

The Panther Series' reliable function also comes with a consideration for site aesthetics. A recessed front plate with beveled edges and no visible mounting holes on the front plate are standard design features, with multiple plate finishes available to suit most customer specifications. To increase design options, the Panther can be mounted on any flat surface, including an adjacent wall or a push plate mounting post, using standard screws. As with all BEA push plates, the Panther Series comes with a lifetime warranty.
