Loading Dock Doors

The Perez Art Museum mechanized loading dock doors rotate open at the touch of a button to provide access to the museum loading dock. Each double-hinged door rotates out, riding on a traction drive wheel  powered by a one horsepower motor. An air spring above the wheel applies 1,000 lb downward forces to improve wheel traction. When closed, the a manual lock handle pins the door at the top and bottom to prevent unwanted movement. The drive system and locking system are installed within the door cladding, out of sight from all vantage points.
