Slide / Slide


It often happens that when someone hurries to a lift which is about to shut,
the passenger inside the lift nervously press the wrong key to ‘help’,which causes the door keeps closing and hurts people.The reason is that it takes time for passengers to translate the indicator icon on the button into real action. SLIDE is a very visual and intuitive door control system located on the right side of the lift door which synchronizes with the movement of the right door. By controlling the slider, passengers can slide the door open and close without much thinking.
