Painless Operation and Maintenance
Recover valuable time and money.
Standard preventative maintenance (PM) on Four-Fold doors includes applying grease to hinges and operators. With general yearly PM, Four-Fold door operators and components are designed to perform over 1 million cycles. Conventional sectional and coiling doors require constant spring and cable maintenance and replacement to keep them in safe working condition. Failure to keep up with costly PM on sectional and coiling steel doors can result in door failure, which can cause both damage to equipment and injury to personnel.
Manual operation is available with the Four-Fold door system. With the simple pull of a cord, manual operation is quick and easy. It requires no springs under tensions or time consuming chain hoists or heavy lifting.
It is common with overhead sectional and coiling steel doors for vehicles to begin driving through the door opening after losing sight of the bottom of the door, only to hit the bottom panel as they move through the opening. A collision of this type will make it impossible to operate the door (especially with telescoping and coiling steel doors, which cannot tolerate any denting or deforming of the slats). In contrast, the Four-Fold door is able to operate with similar abuse.
Four-Fold sallyport door systems are a must for high security applications. Heavy duty tube steel constructed panels are available solid sheeted, glazed with security glass or inset with security of louvers. Designed to resist forced entry, sallyport systems feature detention grade locking mechanisms, tamperproof fasteners, ballistic resistant armor sheeting options and high-speed operation to assure your facility is secure.
We put in these types of doors approximately 4.5 to 5.0 years ago....We are veryGary CurmodeFire Chief, Copper Mountain
happy with the way they work. I recommend them versus vertical doors; they cost more on the front end, but, their preventive maintenance is a lot cheaper than vertical doors and firefighters tend NOT to damage them by leaving compartment doors open.
The doors overall have been very durable and prompted us to come back and have them installed in our latest station project which is the relocation of Fire Station 2.Curt PronkAdministrative Services Manager, City of Rochester, MN
The Four-Fold XT™ operator is interior mounted while the door panels fold to the exterior. This eliminates the bay space that is needed with the regular Four-Fold design.
