The patented SST-II Electrically Actuated Bi-Fold System (Patent No. 8,714,229) utilizes electric actuators in place of hydraulic cylinders, offering a more affordable option for smaller openings, without the excess power of the hydraulic system. Folding open, vertically, like its larger sibling, the Bi-Fold Electric System allows for the same smooth access between environments with just the press of a button.
Perfect for residential or architectural applications and smaller commercial openings, the SST-II Electrically Actuated Bi-Fold System dissolves the barrier between interior and exterior allowing for simple passage between spaces, or to allow the ambience of the outdoors to flow in.
For additional security or extreme negative wind pressures within the structure, automatic, electrically-actuated locks are available for securing the system panels to the frame.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
