New Locking Mechanism with no loose parts
The new push button locking mechanism (Patent Pending) is a stand-out element and is consistent across all hangers and pivots. It has no loose parts that can get misplaced during installation.
For faster installation, the locking mechanism provides easy vertical adjustment. Just simply depress the push button and lower or raise the panel using the hex key provided.
Featuring automatic locking technology, the system self locks as soon as the push button is released, ensuring that the panel always remains set.
The locking mechanism is concealed within the track to offer greater visual appeal.
The intermediate hanger hinge, bottom guides and pivot now feature non-removal pin technology for enhanced security. No exterior hardware can be tampered with or removed.
Weatherfold 4s is available in four panel weight capacities 50kg, 75kg, 100kg and 150kg. Brio Weatherfold 4s 75 and 100 systems share common track and channel, requiring no change to panel and frame cutting details, making it easy to switch between systems.
