2 Products
2.1 Acceptable Manufacturer
Products of the following manufacturer are acceptable, provided they comply with the
Contract Documents.

Wilson Doors (800) 558-5974 Premier ™ aluminum vertical bi-fold door

2.2 Product Model

A. The door shall provide a clear opening as indicated on the Construction
Drawings prepared by the Architect.

B. The door framework is to be welded Aluminum sections engineered by the

door manufacturer as required. The door shall be engineered to resist all
anticipated loads without sagging, bowing or conflicting with its smooth and
efficient operation. The design shall be furnished, approved and sealed by a
professional engineer registered in destination state (if required).

C. The door is to be equipped with a completely pre-wired bottom AC drive,

including all necessary mounting hardware, limit switches, and upper over-
ride limit to prevent the door from traveling beyond designed opening height.

D. Button rollers shall have mask bearings (extra heavy duty roller bearings) on 3”
wheels. Lifting mechanisms and components shall be designed with a 5.1
safety factor.

E. The door shall be bi-fold canopy type and shall be electrically operated. The
electrical operator and controls shall be the products of the manufacturer’s
normally engaged company for the production of such equipment. The
electrical operator and controls shall be the manufacturer’s latest design.

F. The aluminum doors shall supplied in mill finish and assembled into welded
frames of 6061 T-6 aluminum.

G. The door shall be equipped with neoprene weather stripping at heads and
jambs. The weather stripping at the head shall be installed to prevent the flow
of water into the door installation. Sills shall have a special fabric reinforced
high-grade rubber astragal.

H. The construction and materials of the door shall be standard of the

manufacturer, but must meet the minimum structural requirements of the
building area codes as specified by Architect.
I. Electric Motor Operation: Provide UL listed electric operator, size and type as
recommended by manufacturer.

1) The motor shall be located on the bottom section of the door.

2) Aluminum Door controls shall be Variable speed AC-Drive 3

(button) push-button type with Up – Stop – Down positions with
automatic latches that activate when the door is fully closed.
The door must stop before reversing direction. Also provide two
(2) remote controls for the door. The door shall be capable of
being operated from one side of the door.

3) All electrical controls and devices shall conform to the

requirements of the current National Electrical Code.

a) Electrical: Motor controller enclosure, 3 button Control

Station,AC- Drive and all electrical components shall be
installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code.

4) Input voltage shall be 220 volts single phase or as specified by

the door manufacturer.

a) Electrical Motor: 220 volts, single phase, capacity as

recommended and provided by the hangar door
manufacturer for door size and weight.

5) The gear motor is to be equipped with an electric brake.

6) Provide a magnetic starter with 110-volt control unit. Provide a

heavy-duty weatherproof limit switch.

7) All controls shall be pre-wired and factory tested.

passes its full clear opening height, it will activate the override
and stop the door automatically.

9) Side Lock Switches: On manual lock systems these switches are

designed to prevent the door from operating while the side
locks are set.

10) Remote Control allows for easy opening and closing (to include
two transmitters ,a receiver and a remote antenna)

J. Lift cables are to be fastened to the bottom of hinge, thereby transmitting

forces directly to the header of the building, thus relieving the door of
unnecessary stresses. Cables are to be fastened to the cable drum at the
bottom cord by means of a welding ring on the drum, thereby permitting
drive shaft cable to have ¼ turn of free play without danger of cutting lift
cables. Cables shall not pass through pulleys, thereby eliminating
maintenance and extending cable life.
K. The drive shaft shall be mounted on the bottom cord of the door, running
continuously along the entire width of the door. The drive shaft shall be
attached to the door frame, with bearing mounts wherever there is a cable
drum installed, to minimize stress on the shaft. The cable drums are to be an
integral part of the drive shafts, thereby, guaranteeing an even lift of the door
at all times.
