New Summit® Vertical Lift Operable Partitions Overview
Hufcor innovation takes flexible space management in a completely new direction: UP!
Hufcor, the world’s most installed brand of operable partitions, introduces the Summit 640V vertical lift operable wall system. Summit’s patent-pending lift system takes acoustic operable panels through a narrow slot and stacks them neatly above the ceiling. The unique, automated lifting device makes operation as simple as pushing a button to provide optimal space division.
Panels are a nominal 4”  thick and to 30”  in height. Panel faces are steel laminated to appropriate substrate to meet the STC requirement. Welded steel frames are of minimum 16 gauge [1.42mm] painted steel.
Sound seals are of tongue and groove configuration, to ensure panel-to-panel alignment and prevent sound leaks between panels. Horizontal panel edges provide a minimum groove appearance. The first panel in the opening features a bottom retractable safety sensor seal providing a minimum of 2”  floor adjustability to accommodate out-of-level floors.
The standard face finish is factory-applied vinyl; however, optional carpet, fabric, and other custom finishes are available, subject to factory approval for manufacturing compatibility.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FACE FINISH DIRECTION: Finishes will be applied to the 640V IN A HORIZONTAL DIRECTION. The finishes provided on most selectors or samples are shown in a vertical position and may look different when applied horizontally.
Exposed metal trim is powder coated in Lamb’s Wool, Gray, Brown, or clear anodized aluminum. The matching vinyl seals are available in Lamb’s Wool, Gray, or Brown. Custom metal trim colors are available for an upcharge.
Motor and Drive System
Panels are retracted above the ceiling and stored by activating the two key-switch controls. The motor and drive system automatically extend/retract the panels in the opening. Each panel shall be supported by two guide rollers traveling in vertical guide rails.
When the operable wall is being lowered (closed), the panels stop if the leading (bottom) edge comes into contact with any object between it and the floor. The operation of the wall may resume once the key switch has been released and the obstruction cleared.
Lead edge stops and AUTO REVERSES direction. Both motor braking and redundant load arrestor system comes standard on the system as should all overhead stacking operable walls systems should employ.
The partition has been tested at a laboratory accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) and in accordance with ASTM E90 Test Standards. Standard panel construction shall have obtained a minimum STC rating of 51.
