For the elevator, anti-snap door system is to be designed to prevent premature closing of elevator panels. This would prevent accidents to occur while people/animals are on the verge of leaving or entering the elevator. As far as the design of the system has been observed, it is to use 2/4 mechanical actuators at the top and bottom extremes of entrance. Each capable is producing up to 1500N force and extending to 18 inch in length. These properties of an actuator is more than enough to hold back the elevator door
