Uplift Overview
     Doors and Windows

Smartech Uplift Door and Downlift Window Systems are inspired by traditional door designs, but lift or lower vertically.

Uplift doors are designed especially for high ceiling applications such as showrooms and warehouses.

Downlift windows were developed specifically for elevated applications, such as windows or balconies with balustrades, where it is possible to have the door slide down the outside wall or through a slot in the floor. It is an ideal solution for patios, balconies, and winter gardens.

Benefits of Uplift doors and Downlift windows or doors

CUSTOMISED CLADDING

We customize the design of the Uplift door or Downlift window frame to correspond with different cladding options. This allows for greater flexibility and develops the possibilities for the overall building design.

People love the latest timbers or composite timbers, either as boards, battens, slats on their doors or windows. There is imitation stone for a natural look, fiber cement, aluminum, metal, imitation brick and ceramic, to name a few.

Note: Smartech does not supply or install the cladding. The builder or project manager must take responsibility for the supply and installation of the cladding on site.

COLOUR OF YOUR CHOICE

We supply the standard Uplift door or Downlift window with a quality polyester powder coat finish. We have an excellent range of powder coat colors available as standard, or you can choose a non-standard color for an additional fee. Premium quality powder coating is available for doors and windows for coastal areas or corrosive environments.

Note: Additional costs for the Premium Range

MOTORISED OR MANUAL

We supply all our Uplift doors and Downlift windows in either motorised or manual operation. Smartech offer a range of operators to suit different products and applications.

MADE TO ORDER

Smartech Uplift doors and Downlift windows are all custom made. You specify the size, color, cladding material and the mode of operation and we will create the perfect Uplift or Downlift frame to suit your project.

SMOOTH OPERATION

Durability and effortless operation of our Uplift doors and Downlift windows are assured with Smartech’s Balanced Weight System™. It is a perfectly counterweight balanced design, providing long-lasting and effortless operation of both doors and windows.

STAINLESS STEEL COMPONENTS

All fittings of our Uplift doors and Downlift windows are made of stainless steel for durability, quality, and aesthetics.

CONCEALED DESIGN

Weight covers for our Uplift doors and Downlift windows are designed to enclose the counterweights out of harm’s way and provide a neat aesthetic finish. Covers wrap around, extend from the track and return to the wall.

COMPREHENSIVE SEALING SYSTEM

Smartech’s high-quality dual sealing system firmly seals the gap between the track and the door or window. We also install an additional nylon brush seal that seals the gap between the Uplift door or Downlift window, and the wall preceding the dual seals.

Underneath the Uplift door and Downlift window system is a PVC bulb seal that sweeps and compresses against the floor or sill threshold. An additional neoprene sweep seal can be fitted forward of the bulb seal to further complement and enhance the sealing.

Uplift Doors

Smartech Uplift doors provide an elegant and easy-to-use solution for high ceiling applications, such as in showrooms and warehouses.

 

Many cladding materials can be used with Uplift door frames and include glazing options, which make them a perfect fit for spaces where visibility is important even when the door is closed such as in car dealerships or other showrooms.
