Remote control door system from Whiting
Nov 1, 2007 12:00 PM
New from Whiting Door Manufacturing is its CommandLIFT remote control door system that can be used on most truck body or trailer rollup door applications. The CommandLIFT is designed to be universal, compact, and secure.
“The CommandLIFT does away with a driver or warehouseperson having to manually open and close rollup doors,” says Jim Webb, the company's business development manager. “Instead, it is done with the push of a button.
“The remote door system not only provides added security and convenience,” he says, “it also increases productivity while reducing driver fatigue and the strain and injuries often associated with opening and closing truck and trailer doors. What's more, the system helps provide maximum door service reliability and life through controlled door openings and closings. The door travels at two feet per second.”
The CommandLIFT is composed of several main components: a center roof-mounted track assembly that attaches to the existing roof bows, a motor assembly that includes a fail-safe internal and external release system, and two remote control key fobs. The system, which requires a suitable 12- or 24-volt power supply, is a direct-drive type that provides long life and reliability because there are no chains or belts to wear out.
The system operates quietly and smoothly with an automatic soft start and stop and provides reliable performance in any type of operating environment.
The CommandLIFT has two integrated Luma Bar LED lights that provide additional illumination with very little current draw. The lights turn on when the door opens, and turn off when the door closes.
The system's motor unit can be easily disengaged, allowing conventional door operation.
The system already is for sale in Canada and will be available in the US starting January 2008.
