by Brianna Crandall — September 16, 2019 — Worldwide manual and automatic door manufacturer STANLEY Access Technologies just announced the availability of its new DuraFit telescoping automatic door solution. The new door was engineered to provide for the high-traffic access needs of retail, hospitals, hotels and anywhere durability is a central requirement. It has been tested for years of standard operation, as well as extreme temperatures (-30°F to 130°F) and abusive contact from hand trucks and luggage carts.
Throughout DuraFit’s development, the company says it has exceeded expectations with its reinforced construction, durable parts, and the new iQ Controller, guaranteeing a perfect slide, tens of thousands of times.
The bi-part, six-panel telescopic DuraFit is specifically designed for installation during either retrofit or new construction in tight spaces, targeting 6 ft. – 9 ft. rough openings with high-volume pedestrian foot traffic. This new door provides one of the industry’s largest possible walk-through openings in that space, claims STANLEY Access Technologies.
For security, the DuraFit has been tested to the highest standards, and it comes with full-height security hooks that are proven to resist exhaustive crowbar attacks. DuraFit is compliant with the following code bodies: UL, cUL, ANSI/BHMA A156.10, IBC, UBC, BOCA, ICBO, NFPA 101.
Henry Kao, STANLEY Access Technologies’ director of Product Management, remarked:
A door you have to squeeze through isn’t a door at all; it’s an obstruction. That’s why the DuraFit is designed to maximize space, not waste it. This door has been rigorously tested for years of operation, and undergone extremes of abuse, temperature, and attack, while prevailing in all scenarios.
