New Direct Drive Motors

10th May 2012

With safety paramount in everybody’s mind IDS has solved an issue for a government organisation on 16no. sites in the northwest of England.

The counter balance spring is the secondary form of safety within a Roller Shutter Doors manufacture, if failure occurs and the door is engaged into manual the door will freefall. IDS have removed the counter balance springs and flange mount motors and replace with new direct drive motors with built in safety brakes.

The new system takes away concerns of counter balance spring failure with the added advantage of reduced maintenance issues.
