Better security for lower cost
These attractively patterned open style sliding grilles provide a high level of security for a lower cost.
CLASSIC WAVES are multipurpose grilles often used in behind glass applications. They are secure enough to lock up store fronts and yet are open enough to allow air circulation through them. These grilles are ideally suited for applications such as food service kiosks. CLASSIC WAVES are solid, substantial grilles that will stand up to the rigors of use in schools and stadiums.
The CLASSIC WAVES are available in a wide variety of checker-board patterns and motifs. Architects and designers can make smart use of the visual interest that these grilles offer.
Side acting top hung sliding folding grille
The Classic Wave incorporates 51mm high truss-like plates at the top and bottom of the closure. Constructed of 102mm x 1.5mm thick aluminium plates that slide over 8mm rods on 89mm centres in an alternating pattern. Plate height is indicated by model number (Sentry 33 - 3" plates, Sentry 1515 - 15" plates).
Tracks & Trolleys
33mm w x 46mm h thick extruded aluminum section with continuous recess for splice tongues and pins. Standard curves are available with 254mm or 356mm radii. Custom radius curved track is available to suite most conditions.
29mm diameter nylon tired ball bearing wheels; two wheel assembly at each hanger; three wheel assembly at all vertical members.
Standard factory finish is 10 micron clear anodizing and stainless steel version available.
Manual push/pull operation.
The grille incorporates 33mm x 60mm vertical posts spaced not to exceed 3000 mm on center and located at each curve. Lead posts utilize concealed, masterkeyable cylinder operated hook-bolt with lock operable from both sides of curtain or optional thumb turn cylinder lock operable from tenant side of curtain that engages a full height wall channel. Intermediate posts provided with concealed, masterkeyable cylinder operated bottom ratcheted drop bolts with lock operable from interior or exterior side of the opening. Posts with drop bolts include dust proof stainless steel floor sockets.
The locking knobs are manufactured with heavy-duty aluminum construction.
The locking posts have a unique self-adjusting locking rod with 6 different positions of adjustments to allow for deflections in bulkheads and irregularities in finished flooring. This post allows replacing or servicing of the locking post without removing the entire door. Also lead and end posts have special softly padded astragals that prevent damage too adjacent finished such as glass or mirror pocket doors and columns.
Weight & Stacking
Grille weight is approximately 5.9kg/m2. Minimum stacking is 87.5mm/metre of opening plus 89mm per locking member (consult factory for critical project specific stack dimensions). The structural support must be capable of carrying the weight of a fully stacked door at any point along its length.
Factory supplied pocket doors are an available option with all side-folding units. Pocket doors stop at the underside of the track and look better aesthetically when the track is recessed in the ceiling or soffit. Pocket doors and frames are fabricated from A36 HR steel, USS 12-gauge. Hinges are 76.2mm non-mortise type. Lock is a 25.4mm security mortise cylinder. Standard finish is a phosphate treatment followed by a light gray baked-on polyester powder coat; minimum 0.065mm cured film thickness. Optional RAL colors are available.
