Compromised headroom doesn’t mean compromised solution thanks to the EFAFLEX brand of doors, by Sydney based company, DMF International Pty Ltd.
EFAFLEX have been designing industrial and commercial doors for nearly half a century. and DMF have been partnering with them for the Australian market for over 13 years.
They have over 90 different models in their range, each designed with a specific application in mind but all engineered to help drive safety, improve performance and reduce energy costs.
The latest in the range has been introduced due to feedback from car park operators, and building facilities managers, wanting a solution for the increased risk of vandalism and rise in the number of burglaries. Operators are keen to improve the level of security, particulalry at the points of entry and exit. Here we look at the details of one of their newest projects, that was completed in a Sydney application.
The site was a busy car park facility which featured a particularly low headroom clearance. Typical roller shutters have previously been a popular product for securing entrances, but being slow to open and close. For this project the client needed a door solution that would be fast in operation and also capable of many opening cycles per day.
EFAFLEX had the ideal solution. The SST® PS N high-speed door was custom made in size and featured a low lintel head assembly that requires less than 280 mm for the door blade when in the open position. No other high speed door manufacturer can achieve this.
The EFAFLEX car parking system is becoming a popular choice for
- multi-storey car parks,
- commercial buildings
- industrial buildings
- Govt facilities
- residential blocks.
The door's slim line construction makes it ideal for areas of reduced space and the adapted door blade sections which measure 105 mm, meaning that the door can be installed in tight spaces.
The PS is available in standard sizes available up to 6.1 meters wide by 4 meters in height and for this project was equipped with the new EFA-TRONIC® control box which is exclusive to EFAFLEX. Its compact design features a three bus system and USB interface for paramter storage. It is equipped serially with more than 20 inputs and protection class IP65. With the new EFA-TRONIC Door Controller, the client was able to interface the door with the existing system for added security and peace of mind.
The PS is uniquely fast. It opens at a rate of nearly 2 metres per second and capable of up to 200,000 operating cycles per year. Available with ventilation laths and offering exceptional insulation from noise, it’s easy to understand why not only Sydney but cities around the world are latching onto the best of safety and performance benefits the EFAFLEX range can deliver to car parks and garages users.
