FABRICATION

Designed for a lifetime of trouble-free operation

Each door or opening wall project is unique.

You can have confidence in the integrity of our design for you since our project managers review each installation. Whatever the size of your project, PowerLift door and opening wall systems impose lower structural loads than most other options. PowerLift solutions stand alone in their simplicity, function and ease of maintenance.

Every PowerLift Hydraulic Door is built to provide a lifetime of smooth and reliable performance. You can eliminate the frustrations of doors that don’t seal tightly, are hard to open and require a lot of headroom.

PowerLift offers the only one-piece door in the industry! Our unique, all-welded construction has no bolts to fatigue or work loose. A PowerLift door provides the tightest seal available in any door: when it closes the elements are left outside.

There are several other key advantages that elevate PowerLift above everyone else in the door industry.

HINGES

A silent, efficient world without grease

Our silent, efficient hinges eliminate safety risks inherent in working at heights on ladders with grease guns.

The core of each PowerLift hinge is a 1” diameter 100,000 psi rated stress proof shaft running within our patented greaseless bushing. Our hinge bushings consist of a high-grade steel and porous bronze matrix which is impregnated with a synthetic fluoropolymer (PTFE). PTFE has one of the lowest friction coefficients of any solid material without using any form of lubricant. These patented bushings greatly reduce friction for decades of silent, zero-maintenance operation. They are ‘hydrophobic’ in nature being completely resistant to water and water-based compounds. The infiltration of water and water-based impurities degrades ordinary bearings in similar applications.

Our hinges have been tested through 80,000+ open/close cycles under load, representing over a century of normal use. At the end of this test our bushings were still going strong, showing less than .003” of wear.
