The CD 80 Swing Door Operator from Dorma Entrance Systems provides an aesthetically pleasing swing door option, perfect for office applications. The innovative design has been recognized internationally with the 2004 Red Dot Design Award.

Suitable for both new and existing applications, CD 80 operators’ low profile make them ideal for mounting on standard door systems.

In addition, the unit’s low weight allows it to fit directly onto the door leaf or top jamb without causing excessive hinge strain. It’s easy to install: simply latch the operator onto the mounting plate after the plate has been attached.

The CD 80 operator is a quiet solution for noise-sensitive locations such as offices and health care facilities. Its tight engineering tolerances reduce vibrations during door operation, resulting in silent function when automatically opening and closing a door.

Several standard functions meet various entrance needs including power assist and an extended hold-open function that allows the door to remain open at an adjustable angle for up to 10 minutes, perfect for loading or unloading, as well as ventilation.
