  • Insulation thickness: 2” or 2 ½”
  • Colour: from RR colour chart http://www.rakennusmestarit.com/varikartta.htm, (or, in special cases, from the RAL color chart, http://www.ralcolor.com/)
  • Water resistance classification: 3 EN 12489 ja EN12425
  • Wind pressure classification: 4 (up to a height of 13”) EN 12444 ja EN 12424
  • Air permeability classification: 4 (determined by door size) EN 12427 ja EN 12426
  • Weather-stripping: the weather-stripping, made of EPDM rubber, is capable of resisting harsh conditions. The door panels have 8-fold male-female weather-stripping between all adjacent panels, and the door bottom has a double door-sweep.
  • Hinges: elevating steel hinges with ball bearings
  • Windows: Double pane selective thermal glass. Any windows mounted less than 28” above the ground are of tempered glass.
  • Doors mounted to structure with mounting devices that are corrosion-proof to classification C4 [which, according to ISO 9223 keeps hinges rust free for 20-40 yrs.]
  • Opening mechanisms:
    • Manually opened doors: the door has a handle on its inside surface that allows its opening or closing.
    • Machine opening: a motor or draw-chain device is mounted to a door panel.
  • Additional specification: Fire resistance classification of EI30
    • Maximum size 16.5’ x 16.5’
    • Windows are not available on the doors with fire resistance classifications.
    • The appearance is the same as a normal folding door.
    • The fire resistant doors are heavier, therefore the mounting surface on the header face must always be at least 8” wide.
    • The available opening machinery consists of a regulations consistent draw-chain using device.

Maximum size: 300” x 240”

  • Structure: folding door having glass panels inside aluminum frames
  • Thickness: aluminum frame thickness is 2”
  • Weather-stripping: the weather-stripping is of harsh conditions bearing EPDM rubber. The panels have 2-fold weather-stripping between them, and there is a double door-sweep weather strip at the bottom of the door.
  • Hinges: elevating steel hinges with ball bearings
  • Windows: double pane selective thermal glass. Also available with triple pane glass. The windows less than 28” above the ground are of tempered glass.
  • Kickguard of rust proof steel

  • Motor: 24V motor operates with single phase electric current
  • Safety equipment:
    • An electric eye system in line with the door prevents the closing of the door if there is some physical object between the detectors.
    • The door opening machinery includes a motor overload activated shut-off switch, which overload would be caused, for example, by a physical object preventing the opening or closing of the door. This prevents a breakdown of the machinery itself.
    • Folding doors that include a built-in entry door have a disconnecting switch that prevents the opening of the folding door when the entry door through it is open.
    • Three push-button switches, Open-Stop-Close, beside the door opening.

    • Radar utilizing door opening systems
    • Control through VIRVE signals
    • Magnetic loop door opener (installed in customer prepared conduit grooves)

Suitable for big doors (bigger than 16,5′ x 16,5′) that have 4 to 6 leaves and are opened very frequently, such as, for example, at fire stations, carwashes and factories. 

  • A separate rail for mounting the door opening machinery will be mounted above the door. The machinery will then be installed upon this rail.
  • This machinery will be operated with normal grid electric current (3-phase current)
