Offering a programmable opening up to 90°, folding arm actuators work as part of an electric window control system to automatically open side-hung windows and doors. They can be synchronised to work in pairs, providing a push force between 250-600N. Suitable for use in a wide range of applications, we have taken a closer look at some of the more popular ones below.
Natural ventilation systems
Ensuring domestic and commercial properties have adequate ventilation is essential for complying with Approved Document F of the Building Regulations. However, folding arm actuators can be configured to work with a wide range of sensors. This includes rain, wind, temperature, and C02 sensors, making them an excellent addition to any natural ventilation system that uses side-hung windows or doors.
Smoke ventilation systems
Smoke ventilation systems are an integral part of fire safety strategies in buildings. They are also a legal requirement in blocks of flats, student halls and other multi-storey residential buildings. So, as folding arm actuators can be configured to work with smoke sensors, manual call points, and fire alarms, they can form an important part of a building’s fire safety strategy.
Doors that are used on a day to day basis
For doors that require access on a day-to-day basis, there are roller versions of folding arm actuators that are specifically equipped for this purpose too. This option pairs well with a time sensor that is configured to open and close door(s) at specific times during the day.
Folding arm actuators in any RAL colour
