The patented SST-II Hydraulic Bi-Folding System (Patent No. 8,714,229) opens vertically, allowing smooth, quiet access between environments with just the press of a button. By incorporating the SST-II Bi-Folding Door or Window System, the barrier between interior and exterior vanishes, letting the ambience of the outdoors flow in. Design the SST-II into your interior spaces and watch walls disappear, allowing light and motion to easily move throughout.
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.
24v DC Battery Back-Up System
In the event of a power-outage, the system may be manually lowered. We can provide an optional 24v DC battery back-up system.
The motor/power unit may be located anywhere within the building – Close proximity to the hydraulic door or window is not necessary.
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.
