Schweiss Doors introduces new hydraulic door wind pin
Structural design of Schweiss hydraulic doors includes the application of wind pins. Wind pins lock the door to the building structure similar to the bolt in a standard door lock and are an integral structural link between the door and the building to resist negative wind loads.
Until now, locking in wind pins was a manual operation — you had to walk back to the center of the door and manually lift the wind pin out of the floor socket and walk back to the door control station to proceed to raise the hydraulic door. When the door closed, the operator had to again manually reset the wind pin into place — time consuming, repetitive and not very efficient.
Schweiss Doors streamlined this process with its newly engineered design of an automatic hydraulic wind pin. Now, all you have to do is push the up/down control button or remote opener to open or close your door securely and set the wind pin in place.
The hydraulic-operated wind pin rises out of the floor socket and the door automatically opens, eliminating the task of the door operator having to walk back and forth to the center of the door and manually engage or disengage the wind pin. The wind pin is mounted to the interior frame of the door and extends down into the building floor.
No more worry about forgetting to raise the wind pin, which could result in damage to the door or floor socket!
