Smartech lets you move up. The Glide-Away Uplift door, inspired by traditional door designs, moves vertically to the open position. Always with the sleek industrial aesthetic and quality craftsmanship we are renowned for, choose from a standard range of door sizes and glass designs, and appreciate our fast turn-around times to start enjoying a truly open and contemporary work space. The Glide-Away Uplift Door has been designed especially for high-ceiling applications such as show rooms and warehouse-type spaces, where is it possible to have the door resting in the open position, flush with the wall above the opening.
The door is manufactured as a single item with the four axles already attached. These connect to the running bearings with minimum fuss, guided by the specially extruded aluminium running guides for dependable door operation for years to come.
Note: It is the responsibility of the designer or builder to provide adequate fixing to carry all weight loads.
Door Frame & fittings
All glass supplied and fitted by Smartech Door Systems is 6.38mm laminate safety glass as standard. Where toughened glass or Perspex is required please consult the manufacturer. If glass is not requested then it is the responsibility of the purchaser to follow procedures and to conform to Australian Standard AS1288 (Glazing Selection).
Note: The use of other glass or glazing material should be referred to the manufacturer due to additional weight that may or may not be required to keep the door balanced. Standard 6.38mm laminate safety glass applies for standard glass designs.
All doors are fitted with side bolt locks on each side of the lower frame. With motorised doors, no side bolts are supplied.
Note: Where doors are motorised we do not recommend the installation of any slide bolt locks as damage can occur when a motor is in operation.
The Glide-Away Uplift Door is balanced between the frame weight and the weights that are attached via the top two axle-shafts, over a pulley sheave. Door movement is guided by bearings attached to the door frame, operating in the specially extruded aluminium running guides. There are two axle shafts on each side of the frame, one at each end of the frame which allows the door to travel up and down vertically.
Smartech Door Systems’ has developed a motorisation system that is so compact and unique you won’t even notice where the motor is located. The drive spindle shaft is made from high-grade stainless steel and it’s completely concealed ensuring smooth operation and years of travel life. The A 24V DC motor turns the spindle shaft easily and effortlessly. Using the latest in control systems, the controller knows precisely where the door is at all moments of travel. All motorised Smartech Door Systems can be opened and closed at the touch of a button or with turn-key technology.
