The number of retry attempts can be programmed to suit.

Does the RUBEK range of automatic sliding doors have a fail safe system? And what importance does the 'Fail-safe' facility play?

The Fail-safe facility allows emergency entry/exit when a power failure (or fire alarm) occurs. The RUBEK operator will fully open the doors and they will stay open until they fire alarm is reset. The door can be closed manually during this time. If the door is in the lock mode, it will remain locked for up to approximately 8 hours under a standard battery back up. Once the battery is depleted the lock will disengage and the door can be opened manually. The unit is fitted with a battery which operates the doors normally the doors normally upon a power failure. Once power is restored, the operator automatically resets to the normal operating condition and recharges the battery. The same applies with regard to the electric lock. The battery will hold the lock closed until power is resumed or battery is depleted. When in the locked state, and with an active fire alarm the doors will still trigger a Fail Safe and open fully until they are reset. Egress is always available via the exit button.
