With the ever-increasing demand for not just undercover parking in multi-storey buildings, but for a complete Carparking security system; the provision of an EFAFLEX High-Speed Door to a recent project in Sydney ticked all the boxes.
For this particular situation, an EFAFLEX SST-S N Door was chosen, with a low lintel head assembly. Typically with many car park applications, there were only limited height clearances, making a spiral roll assembly not a viable option.
Along with the Low Lintel Head Assembly, there were a number of additional features, as specified, which the EFAFLEX Door could easily accommodate.
This included perforated laths, to ensure a continuation of cross-flow ventilation, even with the door closed. An important consideration when trying to dissipate fumes from vehicle emissions.
High level of safety features including safety light curtains; integration of the EFA-TRONIC Door Controller into the buildings security system, and activation monitoring.
Of course, with the door operating 24/7, it could not create excessive noise, and with parking for 300+ vehicles, the door needed to be able to handle between 500-600 cycles per day, which equates to around a quarter of a million cycles per annum.
With installation and commissioning all provided by DMF International, the finished product very much met the required integrity of the whole building design, in looks, and functionality.
