The Stack Door installs on virtually any type of building, saving
money and space. From Alaska to Florida, Stack Doors have been
specified for aircraft hangars, tee hangers, industrial and
agricultural buildings...even floating barges.
The Stack Door is NOT installed within the framed opening. It mounts
on the outside of the building. The Upper Guide Channel and Mounting
Brackets attach to the flat header, as do the end hinges on the flat
side jams. Unlike vertical lift doors that store overhead, the framed
opening height for the Stack Door is also the clear opening height.
This unique feature can save 2' or more in overall building height.
Most installations are completed in one day.
No motors are required; anyone can open this door with ease. Simply
turn the handles located on every other panel, pull gently, and the
Stack Door glides on it bottom track to stack neatly out of the way.
The stacking design allows for a complete or partial opening,
eliminating the need for side entrance doors.
Designed and tested for a twenty-five pound wind load, in actual use
the Stack Door has withstood:
Hurricane Alicia; Texas, 1982
110 MPH winds; Russell, KS, 1983
Tornado; Wellington, KS, 1980
The Stack Door must be closed during high wind conditions. We have
never had a door blow in while closed.
The Stack Door is not affected by adverse winter weather conditions.
Our patented design puts the working mechanism inside, away form ice
and snow. The bottom track sits 1/4" inside the framed opening.
Neoprene Seals also protect the truck assembly from snow and ice.
The Horton Stack Door opens to the left and right of the framed
opening for maximum versatility. When in the stacked position, door
panels extend 90 degrees from the face of the building, requiring only
5" for every 2 panels.
The Horton Stack Door has a one year warranty on parts and
workmanship. The manufacturer's warranty on the fiberglass skin is a
ten year limited warranty.
