Qompact’s Torsion Spring Assist Control Systems

Qompact has a non-slip hinge, which allows for the use of a torsion spring inside the tube opposite the control mechanism.

The spring assist has many advantages to standard shutter controls:

manual strap

manual_strapA manual pull strap can be used on larger shutter sizes since the weight of the shutter is neutralized. The spring provides a counterbalance resulting in the shutter looking in the down position.

manual gear

pole_crankThe spring assist neutralizes the weight and enables gear opertion for larger shutters and requires less effort to rotate the hand crank.

  • up to 6.5 sq meters

manual push-up/pull down

push_up_downWhere most shutters require motors, the Qompact spring-operated shutter allows for push-up/pull down operation. This saves on both shutter and electrical costs. Large, spring-operated shutters are useful for entry doors, as egress (life safety) issues are not a concern. Simple base-slat locks enable security, but allow for escape during fire or power failures. Spring operation is available up to 13 sq meters without motors or gears.

Solar Power Operation

motorized with line voltage (220v)
