Slide-Up Doors

Single Section Slide-Up Door

Single Section Slide-Up Doors are made of a single, counter-weighted door panel that slides-up to open. This type of door is used when there is insufficient pit depth to suit a Biparting door option and sufficient vertical floor to floor height to accommodate this door assembly.

Each floor to floor height must have a minimum of 2 times the landing door height, plus 6” (150mm), plus additional vertical space for a projecting building sill (by others). Overhead height at the top landing must have a minimum of 2 times the landing door height, plus 6” (150mm). Pit depth must equal the minimum allowed by the elevator standard since slide-up doors do not project below the building sill at the lowest landing.

Required car clearance between the elevator platform and building entrance frame is 7 ½” (191mm). The required projecting building sill for this door option is 6 5/16” (160mm). Required return space on each side of the door clear opening is 18” (460mm).

Two Section Slide-Up Door

Two Section Slide-Up Doors are made of a two, counter-weighted door panels that slides-up to open. This type of door is used when there is insufficient pit depth to suit a Biparting door option and reduced vertical floor to floor height that would not permit the use of a Single Section Slide-Up Door.

Each floor to floor height must have a minimum of 1.5 times the landing door height, plus 10 3/4” (275mm), plus additional vertical space for a projecting building sill (by others). Overhead height at the top landing must have a minimum of 1.5 times the landing door height, plus 10 3/4” (275mm). Pit depth must equal the minimum allowed by the elevator standard since slide-up doors do not project below the building sill at the lowest landing.

Required car clearance between the elevator platform and building entrance frame is 7 ½” (191mm). The required projecting building sill for this door option is 6 5/16” (160mm). Required return space on each side of the door clear opening is 18” (460mm).

Three Section Slide-Up Door

Three Section Slide-Up Doors are made of a three, counter-weighted door panels that slides-up to open. This type of door is used when there is insufficient pit depth to suit a Biparting door option and reduced vertical floor to floor height that would not permit the use of a Two Section Slide-Up Door.

Each floor to floor height must have a minimum of 1.33 times the landing door height, plus 10 3/4” (273mm), plus additional vertical space for a projecting building sill (by others). Overhead height at the top landing must have a minimum of 1.33 times the landing door height, plus 10 3/4” (273mm). Pit depth must equal the minimum allowed by the elevator standard since slide-up doors do not project below the building sill at the lowest landing.

Required car clearance between the elevator platform and building entrance frame is 18” (460mm). The required projecting building sill for this door option is 9 1/2” (241mm). Required return space on each side of the door clear opening is 18” (460mm).
