The System


 

Introducing Arc 3-d™

 

 

The patented Architectural Direct Drive Door System™ (Arc 3-D™) reconciles custom design with energy efficient functionality. The Arc 3-D™ space saving innovation supports contemporary design trends and integrates seamlessly with historic renovation projects.

  • Zero sidewalk projection

  • Custom manufacturing and high performance engineering

  • Integrated high-security applications

  • Matching wall cladding and glazing

  • Compliance with UL 325 and NEMA requirements

 

Experience the dramatic differences

DoorWall Systems with Arc 3-D™ allows you to convert spaces, connect worlds, and design without limits.

Vertically Folding Operable Walls

 

 

The DoorWall engineered solution is ideal for areas that may have wall obstructions that limit the use of a standard vertically folding wall with accordion folding elements. We develop solutions to meet the acoustic challenges of variable spaces that are geometrically challenging. DoorWall Systems ensure user comfort, privacy and confidentiality by exceeding industry standards that reduce ambient noise within meeting and conference rooms.

DoorWall Systems may be considered a Mirage technology that provides the luxury of transparency, metal, wood or custom cladding with clean lines, a lightweight structure into which a wide range of panels can be inserted.

Thermally Clad Door & Frame

 

 

DoorWalls are designed to be 100% thermally efficient with 0.00 air infiltration, even at 6.24 psf. Each of these doors is thermally enhanced using a thermal isolator with interior cladding. In addition to making the door more energy efficient, the interior cladding offers the option to design a DoorWall with a combination of custom material facades / colors and thermally broken glass to match designs for both interior and exterior applications. DoorWall’s Arc 3-D™ packages include the DoorWall, fully integrated door frame and integrated hardware. We have you covered from design to installation and beyond.

 
 

We test our designs extensively through hundreds of thousands of continuous cycles

DWS Engineers design and engineer every detail of our products to perform superbly, even in harsh conditions.

Helical Gear Motors

 

 

The Arc 3-D™ features our 3 HP, 3 phase, low-profile motor with a safety brake system, mounted seamlessly in header area. More powerful motors have increased longevity, and improved capabilities in size, cladding, and other design elements - as compared to small .5 HP standard-production motors found on the market today.

Motors and control panels are simply one example of the many significant differentiating details that are part of the DoorWall Systems DNA. While small, off the shelf motors might work well for hobby shops and light duty residential applications, we believe the demand for industrial grade horsepower to effortlessly move architectural grade glass and high performance facade building materials is a necessity.

Safety

 

 

We believe that safety is not simply a benefit, it’s a mindset. DoorWall Systems are safer by design, which is proven by the built-in safety features in every installation.

  • 250,000+ continuously cycled tested

  • Motor equipped with safety brake system

  • Integrated Load-Lock fall protection designed to lock and catch door instantly

screw drive & Lift Block 

 

 

The Arc 3-Duses a Ball Nut-embedded Block system featuring a Steel Screw Drive and Nut System made of common alloy steel. This produces a true "Load-Lock" safety function as the single-sourced components are designed to work together for industrial-grade performance, zero maintenance, and a longer life. Typical commodity doors use a Steel Screw with incompatible Threaded Aluminum which will strip and potentially break when the Steel Screw Drive drops a heavy load on the lighter-weight, incompatible, threaded aluminum block.

Components

 

 

DWS Engineers pay exceptional attention to design details with proven innovative components in order to build better vertically operating doors and walls. We use better drive systems, superior motors and control panels, high performance energy efficient door section frames, proven safety devices and other high quality components that you will not find in other brands. From product design and materials to workflow and tools, every element comes together to provide a DoorWall that is unequalled in elegant form and exquisite function.

DWS Manufacturing:

  • Interior or exterior mounting

  • Ease of installation via pre-assembly of operational components in the factory

  • Modularized for easy install on site
