The Versa-Rail Auto-Shutter is designed to provide a safety closure for the Versa-Lift opening when the lifting platform moves down. This accessory is required when installing the Versa-Lift inside your living space or a closet in your home or in an attic space accessible by a passage door from a living space or on a deck where children or pets may have access to the opening.
The shutter door is lightweight tempered aluminum and is deployed by gravity as the lifting platform frame passes down through the opening. A horizontal support bar is provided to support the door in the raised position. See Fig 1.
Bracket mounted nylon rollers are provided that mount to the top of the lifting platform frame. These rollers lower the door gradually as the lifting frame descends and raise the door gradually as the lifting frame comes back up. See Fig 2.
When the lifting platform frame descends below the upper floor, the shutter door is resting on the front and back of the lift opening. Although the shutter door is not intended to be a step surface, it will support up to 200 lbs. See Fig. 3
The AS-24 Auto-Shutter accessory includes all parts and hardware needed for installation, along with illustrated detailed instructions. Shipping Weight approx 15 lbs.
