Tested for Compliance
Woodfold accordion gates for elevators have been tested by an independent laboratory to comply with ASME A17.1, Section 204.4f "Strength of doors, gates and their guides." Gates have also been independently tested for ADA compliance (per ADA/BOMA Sec.4.1311) for opening load force.
6_09.jpg (130057 bytes) Architectural Specifications
Residential Elevator Gate(s) shall be accordion-type, factory finished, with panels connected continuously along the top and bottom by a steel hardware hinge system. Individual hinges are to be riveted to those adjoining, and contain stops to maintain a uniform extended position. Extruded vinyl seals shall securely connect all adjoining panels top to bottom. Gates shall be suspended by nylon wheels from an aluminum overhead track. Bottom pins and lead post gib travel in floor guide (by elevator Mfg.). All necessary hardware and moldings shall be included for normal installation. Note: To comply with ADA requirements, certain applications may call for specific handle location placement and accessible finished opening widths.

Unique Hardware Hinge System
The Woodfold top and bottom
hardware hinge system eliminates the stretching of the vinyl panel connectors. Our roller system is riveted to the top steel hardware hinge system allowing doors to "stay put," whether in the stacked or extended position. This metal hinge system provides rigidity and strength while the partition or door is fully extended.

Clear finish supplied with Off-white, Chalk and Amethyst doors. Bronze finish supplied with all others. Gold available at optional cost.

Lead Posts I Visifold Side Channels
Vertical aluminum components are available in clear anodized, bronze, sand and white as standard, each is
color coordinated with panel connector finish. Gold available at optional cost.

Supplied as standard in the following colors: White with Off-white, Chalk and Amethyst vinyl; Sand with Hardwood Birch and Oak, Birch and Natural Oak Vinyl, Tan, Tahiti and Rattan vinyl; Brown with all other vinyl or hardwood panels.

Finish Selections

Custom stain finishes and exotic or special hardwoods are available with sufficient lead time. Contact our headquarters for more information.

Vinyl-Lam Wood grains
