2pc Counterweight

Two Piece Counterweighted Doors are typically used in large buildings and offer several advantages.

Here’s a list of  considerations:

  • Lifts vertically, offers 100% access to the door opening when the door is open
  • Simple design and operation. Easy to manually lift open.
  • Easy close, simply pull down a rope tether.
  • No springs are used. Doors are counterweighted with cables and a steel gravity weight. Low maintenance.
  • Safely stores doors above door opening parallel to wall, minimizing forklift risk.
  • Doesn’t obstruct work light from skylights or other lighting fixtures near the door opening.
  • Lasts for decades when maintained properly.
  • Not appropriate for motorized operation
  • Must have headroom above the door equal to half the door opening height plus 1ft.
  • Most existing doors can be matched for exterior appearance with identical or similar sheeting.
