Vertical folding door - VERTIGO

VERTIGO, motorized industrial door with reduced sideroom. Patented.    

Motorized industrial door of great technical value, which is characterized by a series of advantages that make it ideal for applications on passages with space problems. An exclusive patented opening system reduces the sideroom  required, maximizing the installation space. It consists of 4 mono-structural and self-supporting door leaves hinged together that by means of a chain drive are packed in the upper part of the passage. The fixing structure is designed to easily allow all the adjustments necessary for perfect alignment and adaptation of the door to the passage to be closed

NOTE: the SUPERTHERMIC VERTIGO industrial door is also available in the evolved ISOMAX thermal break version with width limitations  ( see ›› )

Air/water tightness:

- Black EPDM anti-crush/anti-ageing gaskets between panels
- Black EPDM anti-ageing gasket between the door panels, upper lintel and lateral shoulders
- Black EPDM anti-crush/anti-ageing gaskets on the floor


complete self-extinguishing Class B2 CFC-free (Chlorine, Fluoride, Carbides) polyurethane insulation. High-pressure foaming cycle with minimum density > 40 Kg/m3

Perimeter frame: dovetail shaped profile, thickness 2 mm

Double skin coating of galvanized pre-painted steel sheet with Sendzimir treatment
with horizontal staves, pitch 160 mm
- smooth, thickness 0.8 + 0.8 mm
- embossed, thickness 0.5 + 0.5 mm

Fixing system: 

lateral guides made of silver anodised aluminium profile, fitted with slotted brackets which allow maximum adjustment on 2 axes, to be fixed on the wall by means of bolts  

Movement system: 

using chains inserted inside the lateral guides. Electromechanical three-phase motor positioned at the side of the door pack with limit switch and integrated fall arrest device, emergency release and manual operation. The fall-arrest system in the event of chain breakage uses 2 parachutes with pincers that act on the lateral guides.

Attention/technical note Warning/technical note: the choice of dark colours may give rise to a considerable temperature difference between inside/outside (on the side exposed to the sun) even of more than 40°/45°C. This could cause the deformation of the door, which in case of prolonged sun exposure may lead to the detachment of the steel sheet from the insulating material. This is due to the physical-mechanical expansion and not to production defects. Therefore, the use of dark colours is not recommended in particularly hot and sunny climatic areas.
