Glide-Up Doors fit within the opening therefore it is highly
recommended that all sides are plumb and true. IMPORTANT:
Sufficient additional opening height, equivalent to the door
thickness in the open position, must be taken into account
when designing the opening. Refer to clearance detail data
sheet and technical drawing.
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
The door frame shall be constructed using rolled hollow section
steel tube members, 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
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.
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 400mm high, connected to solid
steel locking bars. The "T" handle lock is key-operated
from outside only as standard. Glide-Up Doors can be fitted
with padbolts (as standard) or patio bolts (when specified)
internally and fitted to either side 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 Glide-Up Door is a single leaf door, balanced with counterweights.
The movement of the door is controlled by guide rollers in
vertical guides with connecting link arms to the top of the
door. In the open position the door rests under the lintel
and projects internally and externally of the lintel. See
Method of Operation.
Glide-Up doors are suitable for hand operation up to 600kg
