Penfold Mazda

Smartech was selected to install the Glide-Away folding doors as part of the work for the newly renovated showroom at the Penfold Mazda dealership. The door was designed to suit the newly created opening of 3500H by 5600W. This large folding door weighs 640kg and its glass panes are designed to be the largest possible.

The electrically operated folding door allows the huge glazed wall to open at the touch of a button. The commercial variable speed German drive motor features soft start/stop and learned position technology. Our Smartech aluminium drive system allows the chain and motor to be completely hidden, resulting in a clean look – the ideal choice for showroom doors.

Penfold Audi

Penfold Audi in Burwood had a simple approach for their new building, the Audi Approved Plus Dealership. The architect wanted to take advantage of the vertical wall and to create a clean, clear opening without any visible door. An Uplift door was selected and was perfectly in keeping with the continuity of the tall showroom.

The electric operated vertical lift door, simply controlled from a key switch, allows ease of operation. We used 13.2 Laminate Low E glazing, which allowed the building to maintain its high energy ratings. The door was installed with only 210mm of side room, including the compact German motor that is hidden within the counterweight cover. The door operates quietly and visually blends into the glazed façade, presenting a clean architectural finish.
