Building Maintenance Equipment Door

The building maintenance equipment doors at Eighth Avenue Place are approximately 92.5 feet long by 19 feet tall, and tilted back at a 33-degree angle. Each of the 20 vertical panels are supported by rollers that ride within tracks mounted at the top and bottom of the door opening.  At the touch of a button, the bi-parting door is automatically driven to the open position, with panels stacked on each side of the door opening. The system is designed to be highly reliable and operate trouble-free for decades with only modest maintenance and limited repair/replacement of moving parts.
