When the operators of a large apartment block needed to upgrade the access security to their underground car park, they knew exactly who to contact. Situated in Sydney’s Central Business District, the facility had a 400mm sloping gradient, this coupled with restricted headroom made it even more of a challenge for most traditional roller shutter systems.
When they contacted DMF International Pty Limited they explained that ‘One of the product ranges we represent in Australia is the global leading German brand, EFAFLEX. They are synonymous with going that extra mile. Each of their high-speed doors is manufactured to fit the exact location and aperture. Once we had conducted the initial site survey, we knew that the PS systems from EFAFLEX would be ideal for this particular project.’
The EFAFLEX EFA-SST® PS was custom made and shaped to accommodate the sloping gradient of the ground. Featuring confined headroom too, as is common in underground car parks, EFAFLEX had the knowledge and design expertise to assist.
Here they recommended an oval shaped spiral design to cope with the 700 mm available headroom. The oval spiral has been designed to reduce the amount of headroom needed and ideal for use in restricted structural conditions. The PS range has been specifically designed with car parks in mind. It features a space saving construction, built to withstand the highest wind load capacity and be manufactured with a variety of additional safety devices.
Conventional roller shutters are typically manual in application, heavy to operate, slow to open, and only designed for a limited number of operating cycles. EFAFLEX use only the highest quality materials and designed to last. They can operate up to 250,000 cycles per annum, which is more than enough for even this busy Sydney car park.
