The 50/50 System

The Best of Both Worlds

The patented, hydraulically operated 50/50 Door and Window System (Patent No. 9,567,789) combines the best features from our SST-II Bi-Fold and Single Swing Systems. The 50/50 provides an incredibly clean opening, requires minimal exterior space in the open position, maximizes clear opening height, and requires no maintenance, making it perfectly suited for architectural, commercial, and residential designs.

Why 50/50?

Hydraulically Operated

The use of hydraulic cylinders eliminates counterweights, cables, locking mechanisms, pulleys, springs, etc., providing a clean panel face, free from obstruction.

Clean and Clear

The cylinders are positioned vertically and, along with the hoses, are hidden entirely within our jamb housings. The result is a wonderfully clear opening from one space to the next.

Maintenance Free

The 50/50 System is maintenance-free. There are no hinges or rollers and all pivot points utilize maintenance-free bearings.

Remote Power

The power unit may be located anywhere in the building, thereby providing customers with quieter operation, and contributing to a cleaner look.

All Steel Construction

Narrower steel profiles allow for more glass volume and greater visibility.

Features

  • Maintenance-free!
  • Shipped powder-coat finished. Standard RAL colors in gloss with the option to custom match
  • Manual lowering system in case of power failure
  • Built-in locking mechanism maintains system securely in closed position
  • Full perimeter weather seals
  • Integral mounting frame to limit loads on the structure
  • No floor track is required – Nothing to impair movement through the opening
  • When open the system forms a partial awning providing protection from the weather and sun

Options

Motor/Power Unit

The motor/power unit may be located anywhere within the building. Close proximity to the hydraulic door or window is not necessary.

Controls

Choose from a standard up/down, 2-button, or key control for system operation. A weather-resistant control is also available. All controls are constant contact.

Safety

Infrared photo eyes or a lead-edge sensor are available, to either stop, or stop and reverse the motion of the door or window. Optional warning horn and strobe light indicate system operation.

Remote Operation

Remote Transmitters offer ease of entry upon approach. Transmitters are constant contact. For safety reasons, we require either photo eyes or a lead-edge sensor with remote transmitters.

Cladding

For turn-key products, we offer our glass retainer system (glass stops) and a variety of dual or single pane glazing options. All factory-supplied glass is laminated for safety. Customers may also elect to provide a virtually unlimited number of inserts such as polycarbonate, steel or wood, to name just a few.

Finish

Beyond our standard RAL powder coat finish catalogue, our products may be shipped with a custom-color designed specifically for your project, or manufactured from stainless steel, available for corrosive environments (seaside or pool house installations). Stainless systems may be powder-coated as well.
