WindowMaster launches a new door actuator to be able to offer a fuller product portfolio for total project solutions and product sales. The actuator contains a new chip that allows all customers to use it.
It is a persistent request from the global building industry, but also a legal requirement in some countries, that actuators used for natural ventilation and heat & smoke ventilation are both strong and offered with necessary features to fulfill the need in ever demanding building projects. To address these market demands, WindowMaster launches a new actuator aiming to meet customer requirements and to be able to offer a fuller product portfolio for total project solutions and product sales.
The new WindowMaster actuator, labelled WMD 820, is designed specifically for opening of doors and letting in clean replacement air in case of fire, which will accordingly lead the smoke away from the preplanned escape routes.
Air supply in case of fire – a lifesaving product
In the unlikely event that a fire occurs in a building, it is important to extract the deadly smoke and vent out the toxic air, which is dangerous to people. This is usually done by fresh air supply coming from the lower levels, which forces the smoke out through the roof areas; thereby clearing the escape routes and enhancing people’s chances of getting out in time without panicking.
The WMD 820 from WindowMaster is a 90° door opener designed with the necessary force to open those doors in life threatening situations. With its power, the doors will achieve a full 90° opening angle in less than 60 seconds.
The actuator can be used in lower level façade doors as well as on doors inside the building itself to alleviate the need to find multiple suppliers for window and door actuators. By only having one supplier for all actuators, valuable time can be saved in the supplier selection process.
New chip allows all customers to use the new actuator
To offer a universal product that can run with controls from both WindowMaster and other manufacturers, we have developed a new PCB. This enables customers looking for a substitute 90° opener to opt for the WMD 820. Therefore, it is not a requirement only to have WindowMaster products in order to purchase the new door actuator.
Styling and specifications
The WMD 820 is built with the necessary force to open doors in case of fire. With its power, the doors will achieve a full 90° opening angle in less than 60 seconds and thereby guarantee the necessary air inlets for smoke free escape routes. It has been designed with the aim to make it simple to install.
The new actuator comes with the intelligent MotorLink® technology, which allows innovative features such as real-time, genuine synchronization, three speed operation, online parameter set-up and position control and feedback with millimeter-by-millimeter control of the actuators
