Speedmatic® Revolving Darkroom Doors

The Speedmatic® doors and windows come with a
30 month "No Hassle Warranty"
and a history of more than
twenty-eight years of excellent service.
Revolving darkroom doors are manufactured using Dow Lustran ABS and electrically pre-coated, anti-corrosion treated steel. Two-way, three-way, and four-way models in many popular sizes are available. The doors can be for permanent installation, hinged, or safety "pop-out" with break-away hardware.
Also, ADA handicapped accessible doors are available in many popular sizes.

All gaskets are provided to insure complete lightproof and dustproof protection when door is in operation or in stopped position. The door has felt sealing strips between the two cylinders to finish the light seal. Non-slip rubber floor covering greatly reduces the chance of tripping. The stationary floor not only prevents accidents but also makes the needed light seal at the bottom.

Riveted and welded steel members for extra strength, reinforced steel flanges, easy rotation, center suspension, self-aligning ball bearings - these are only a few of many features of Speedmatic® Revolving Darkroom Doors.
Wheelchair ramps are available for handicapped accessible models.

The doors are normally shipped boxed, fully assembled and ready to install.
Installation time: 1 man/hour. No door frame needed, all you do is fit it to the correct door opening. For a small nominal fee, it can also be ordered knocked-down or partially knocked-down for easy re-assembly on the job site.

Pass-Through windows allow access to the darkroom for material handling: personnel inside the darkroom can conveniently send and receive sensitized goods such as x-ray, film, or specimen without disturbing the routine work flow. Rotating pass-through windows are normally installed at a height 36" (91 cm) to 42" (107 cm) from floor eliminating potential safety hazards when working in darkroom conditions.

Made of Dow Lustran ABS (Flash Point 730°F - 752°F [388°C - 400°C], conforms to UL Flame Class Rate of 94 HB), the window will never need painting and will not dent, crack or tear upon impact. To simplify the attachment to the wall, the window frame is rigidly constructed with metal flanges. An extra set of metal flanges is provided for the trimming of the outside wall. Bottom center glide bearings guarantee smooth and quiet operation. Felt entry seals assure light-tight operation.
