Some additional features of Skyfold folding partitions
Skyfold folding partitions are equipped with an optical sensor, which cuts power to the lifting equipment if an object or person passes between the emitter and receiver. Regular operation of the folding partitions is resumed once the key switch has been released and the direction of the wall has been reversed and the obstruction removed.
The internal skeleton of the folding partition consists of a series of lifting mechanisms or pantographs that are made of structural grade aluminium and steel. For greater longevity and silent operation, all mechanical pivot points of the folding partitions are made of high strength bolts or pins on plastic bushings. Aircraft-grade wire cables, of the highest strength and quality, pass through the mechanisms and fold and unfold the panels.
Fixed brush and sweep seals close the gap between the wall track and the pantographs (lifting mechanisms) of the folding partitions, thus providing a visual barrier while flexible bulb seals close the gap between the floor and bottom panel on all folding partition systems.
Skyfold folding partitions can be installed with fixed ceiling height of up to 36’-0”. There is no practical limit to how long (wide) the folding partitions can be
The folding partitions are equipped with a sealed, heavy-duty gear motor that powers the entire system. This lifting motor is designed for hundreds of stops and starts an hour and is rated for service several orders of magnitude more severe than the service it experiences on the Skyfold folding partitions.
