Standard – Motor is located vertically within a stud bay immediately to the left or right of the door system.
Inverted – Motor is located upside down with an extension shaft. The drive shaft pulley is located in an either side smaller stud bay, or within the headtrack immediately above the door. This option does require a sizable soffit area for the motor location.
K2 – This ultra-sleek application allows for the motor to be installed horizontally above a glulam or within the webbing of the I-beam immediately above the door near one end or the other. This application is perfect for when you have a glass curtain wall on both sides of the door system along with a window transom above the door. The motor tucks in nicely, and is super quiet and extremely strong.
Pivot – The motor is located horizontally either immediately above the pivot door within the top frame, or above the top frame inside the soffit area above the door.
Skylight – This application is used for a retractable, slanted window or door system upon the roof top to allow roof access via a stairway. The eastern seaboard is commonplace for this application, where homeowners have very limited yard/garden area.
Pass-Thru Window – This is a popular application for indoor/outdoor counter spaces, which allows for a retractable window (similar to the doors).
We have many more applications in our product development pipeline and look forward to highlighting those in the coming months.
