Schweiss Doors Rolling Out Another New Innovative Product Feature
Hydraulic Wind Pin
Structural design of hydraulic doors includes the application of wind pins. Wind pins lock the door to the building structure similar to the bolt in a standard door lock and are an integral structural link between the door and the building to resist negative wind loads.
Until now, locking in wind pins was a manual operation – you had to walk to the center of the door and manually lift the wind pin out of the floor socket and walk back to the door control station to proceed to raise the hydraulic door! When the door closed, the operator had to again manually reset the wind pin into place – time consuming, repetitive and not very efficient.
Schweiss streamlined this process with its newly engineered design of an automatic hydraulic wind pin.
We make it easy!
Now, all you have to do is push the up/down control button or remote opener to open or close your door. The hydraulic-operated wind pin raises out of the floor socket and the door automatically opens, eliminating the task of the door operator having to walk back and forth to the center of the door and manually engage or disengage the wind pin.
No more worry about forgetting to raise the wind pin, which could result in damage to the door or floor socket! Now the door owner can push the open or close button and the wind pin will automatically raise and lower the wind pin into place – all in one easy push of a button!
More and more customers are insisting on remote control operated doors where they have the option to drive their vehicle, airplane or tractor up to the hydraulic door and press the remote control button. The door opens without leaving the seat of your vehicle. How easy is that!
