U.S. Aluminum Series E1200 Elephant Doors:
An Operable Storefront System with Functioning Doors

LOS ANGELES, CA — August 1, 2012 — Introducing U.S. Aluminum’s latest innovation in the storefront industry.  The Series E1200 Elephant Door is an operable pivoting/sliding storefront entrance system. The Series E1200 was designed with versatility and economics in mind and is ideal for malls, convention centers, museums, airports, sports arenas, stadiums, gymnasiums, as well as auto, boat, recreational vehicle, and motorcycle dealerships.

NEW U.S. Aluminum Series E1200 Elephant Door System

The operable storefront sections easily slide behind the fixed sections, creating monumental openings for the easy movement of large items that require unobstructed opening spaces.  The Elephant Door System is suitable for 6’ (1.8 m) wide by 14’ (4.2 m) tall bays, and can meet 30 psf wind loads. The system offers smooth operation and durability with its rugged construction coupled with heavy wall stiles and interlocks, heavy-duty tandem rollers, and a concealed floor track.  Its pivoting doors can be equipped with overhead concealed closers, cylinder locks, pulls or panic exit devices.
