Fully Recessed Counterweight Door

The ARCO fully recessed counterweight door is the perfect choice where no external projection is allowed e.g. on property boundaries. The most popular application for this type of door is high volume car parks. When opening the top of the door moves back into the building whilst the bottom moves upward. It comes to rest in a horizontal position at the top of the opening and has no external projection. At no time during its operation does the door project beyond the building line.
