Minitel/Bigtel Light

The SAIMA telescopic door for access control

The SAIMA Minitel Light is a door with interlocking telescopic wings. The special feature of this type of entrance is that it is very user friendly, as the wings slide to the left and to the right. Smooth and effortless transit is a common feature to all SAIMA doors, but it becomes even easier in the bigger version, the Bigtel Light model, which offers wheelchair access.

The telescopic leaves are built from laminated glass and inserted into a monoblock steel frame with a rectangular base. In comparison to other models with a more rounded shape, like the circular Minisun Light or the elliptical Gate Box, both the Minitel and Bigtel Light models have straight side walls and a very slim frame, so the doors appear to ‘naturally’ belong to the environment where they are installed. This door’s linear design is perfect for antique and modern settings, where the style can be highlighted or not, depending on which finishes are chosen.

This is another door on which SAIMA has chosen to demonstrate the company’s dedication to the search for aesthetically pleasing, functional and secure solutions.
