HECTOR, Minn. – Schwiess Doors has introduced its new Automatic Strap Latch.
The Automatic Strap Latch is a simple strap latch system that provides an “all-strap” and “only-strap” bi-fold door, according to company officials. Officials at Schweiss say they recognized that straps used for lifting could be designed to also be responsible for latching.
The Automatic Strap Latch system eliminates the need for the frequent maintenance required for cable lift bi-fold doors, including fraying, breaking and overwrapping.
The Automatic Strap Latch system opens quicker, is easier to adjust and is safer and quieter than cable lift doors because it is manufactured with 90% fewer parts, company officials explained.
Straps secure the door in all positions: Open, closed and anywhere in between, even in gusts of wind during operation.
