Door Dimensions
Maximum Height: 4000mm
Maximum Width: 10000mm
NOTE: Maximum dimensions are a guide only and may differ due to wind loading and cladding design, consult manufacturer for details.

Fully Internal Glide-Up Doors can be designed to fit within or behind the opening. It is therefore highly recommended that all sides are plumb and true.

Door Construction
The door consists of a single leaf door frame and cladding. NOTE: It is the responsibility of the builder/designer to provide adequate structural columns/walls to carry all weight loads.

Door Frame
Door frame shall be constructed using rolled hollow section steel tube member, braced and trussed as required and designed in accordance with the Australian Standards to withstand wind loading in the closed position and provide minimum deflection in the open position. Frame, guides and fittings shall be prime coated with zinc rich chromate as standard and can be powdercoated or spray painted as specified.

Various types of cladding options are available such as steel, glass, aluminium, bar grille, mesh, plywood, woven wire, perforated sheet metal, insulation panels etc. See Cladding Options.

Personal Entry and Exit Doors (Optional)
Personal entry and exit doors may be incorporated in full or selected heights and open inwards or outwards as specified. Personal entry and exit doors are fitted with a standard lock using Lockwood 201 night latch. Other locks may be available where specified.

Counterweight Covers
The counterweight shall be enclosed and protected using a heavy gauge steel cover to suit dimensions and shall be at a height of approximately three quarters of the door height as standard and fixed to the guide channel and wall.

Manually operated doors shall be fitted with "T" handle lock at approximately 1400mm high connected to solid steel locking bars. The "T" handle lock is key-operated from the outside, as standard. Glide-Up Doors can be fitted with padbolts (as standard) or patio bolts (when specified) internally and fitted to either end unless otherwise specified. Padlocks not supplied by Airport Doors. If motorisation is required, the use of padbolts or patio bolts is not recommended due to self locking by the motor.

The Fully Internal Glide-Up Door is a single leaf door, balanced with counterweights. The movement of the door is controlled by guide rollers in vertical and horizontal guides allowing the door to tilt up into a horizontal position without projecting past the exterior building line. See Method of Operation. Fully Internal Glide-Up Doors are suitable for hand operation up to 600kg total door weight.
