There are outside the entrance of the sliding doors, low down mounted within the door frame and when they are not painted over, they look like the images seen here above


These are an infrared transmitters and a receiver on the opposite side of the door frame and act as an invisible safety beam or barrier across the entrance. If you paint over these, the door will stay open forever!

That will of course stop the door from being unlocked or secured properly. But the biggest cause of problems with these locks is breakage. These locks get broken and snapped when the staff exert excessive force when trying to lock them into place. That in turn is as a result of the hole that these bolts lock into ( called the keep hole ) is usually full of dirt & debris! So - keep you hole clean and your aluminium door will be fine for much longer!
