Description

Folding shutter doors controlled by a pantograph system.

Construction:

Ribbed steel, 230 mm-wide leaves, with rolled edges hinge in patented pickets which are hung from a horizontal tubular track and guided in a channel set into the floor. Proportional movement is achieved by a series of bars in the form of a pantograph fitted to the inside faces of the pickets, with pivoting and sliding connections. A fabricated leading edge strengthens the front of the door unit and carries pull handles, locking and the chain gripper for electrically operated doors.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for external use and in extreme weather conditions.
  • Can be arranged around crane beams or railway catenary wires.
  • Can be installed in combination to almost any width.
  • Single or double units can be power operated and fitted with a range of control options.

Applications:

  • Warehouses.
  • Locomotive/ carriage sheds.

Installation:

A floor channel is generally required; for certain applications a secondary top track can be fitted to prevent sway and allow an uninterrupted threshold.
