Some additional features of the frosted glass walls
The frosted glass wall is 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 frosted glass wall 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 frosted glass wall consists of a series of lifting mechanisms or pantographs that are made of structural grade aluminum and steel. For greater longevity and silent operation, all mechanical pivot points of the frosted glass walls are made of high strength bolts or pins on plastic bushings. Aircraft-grade wire cable or cables, of the highest strength and quality, pass through the mechanisms and fold and unfold the mechanisms.
Fixed brush and sweep seals close the gap between the wall track and the pantographs (lifting mechanisms) of the frosted glass walls, thus providing a visual barrier while flexible bulb seals close the gap between the floor and bottom panel on all frosted glass walls.
The Skyfold mirage frosted glass wall can be installed with fixed ceiling height of up to 24’-0”. There is no practical limit to how long (wide) Skyfold Mirage can be.
The frosted glass walls 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 Mirage frosted glass walls.
