The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recently sent a country-wide letter "to all known users of powered overhead, bi‐folding sectional doors manufactured, supplied or installed by Express Hi Fold Doors Limited or Schweiss Folding Doors UK Limited" stating these doors "currently do not have an anti-drop mechanism or other device to prevent the free fall of the door in the event of a drive or suspension failure." (An anti-drop mechanism is required by the European Safety Directive and European Standards.)
THE BI-FOLD IS PROVEN AS A DANGEROUS DOOR!
The HSE states that "Without an anti-drop mechanism or other device, any failure of the drive or suspension
system will result in the door free falling. This is clearly very hazardous..." Further, the HSE recommends
"As there is NO anti-drop mechanism or device available, we are writing to all known users to encourage you to TAKE THE DOOR OUT OF SERVICE...
UNTIL IT CAN BE REPLACED."
The HSE will be enforcing action against those who do not take steps to replace the door.
HYDROSWING IS THE ONLY REPLACEMENT PART NEEDED FOR A BI-FOLD DOOR
