Split Euro-Pack: Safety first!

SPLIT euro-pack. A new system specifically designed to ease the installation of motorised and non motorised garage and commercial doors. With the SPLIT euro-pack system GAPOSA offers a functional and reliable solution. The SPLIT euro-pack advantages and features are underlined by an analysis of the European rule EN12604 .

The qualities of the SPLIT euro-pack are better underlined when analysing the following paragraphs of the EN12604 norm:

Paragraph 4.3.4, requirement:
“The anti-drop safeguard shall be automatically activated in the event of a suspension failure”
The SPLIT euro-pack is the only system which fully comply with this requirement.
In fact, the commonly used inertial safety brake doesn’t lock the shutter after a spring’s breakage, widely ignoring this important requirement.
Paragraph 4.7.1:
”Precautions shall be taken to prevent ejection of springs or springs coils in the event of spring breakage”.

Only the torsional springs used in the SPLIT euro-pack respect this condition!
The traditional compensation spring boxes obviously cannot comply with this requirement.

Typical installation

  • Spring bracket with safety micro-switches;
  • Torsional spring suitable for the SPLITeuro-pack;
  • Drum with integrated safety brake

Technical and functional aspects

  • Fast and easy installation;
  • No side space;
  • Reliable and long lasting system;
  • Easy manual override;
  • Nylon covered pulleys for the best shutter slat protection;
  • Drums with bearings for the maximum smoothness.
