For a low-cost, easy installation, our Headrail-braced style is one of the best choices you can make. This popular type of installation requires no special floor construction, making it ideal for either new or existing buildings. Featuring a combined floor anchoring system and a tough, anti-grip aluminum headrail, this option makes for an incredibly secure installation with minimal difficulty.
 

Type H/B Powder-Coated Steel

COMPOSITION / CONSTRUCTION OF MATERIALS:
Doors: are 1” thick, constructed with two 22-gauge sheets of stretcher leveled, commercial quality electro-galvanized steel that are formed and then laminated under pressure to a sound deadening double-faced honeycomb core. Face plates are welded together at intervals of 18” on center around entire perimeter to insure a rigid one-piece unit. All edges are then interlocked with a continuous roll-formed edge molding. All mitered corners are welded and ground smooth. Corner clips will not be acceptable.
Panels: are 1” thick, constructed with two 22-gauge sheets of stretcher leveled, commercial quality electro-galvanized steel that are formed and then laminated under pressure to a sound deadening double-faced honeycomb core. Face plates are welded together at intervals of 18” on center around entire perimeter to insure a rigid one-piece unit. All edges are then interlocked with a continuous roll-formed edge molding. All mitered corners are welded and ground smooth. Corner clips will not be acceptable.
Type H/B–Headrail Braced Pilasters: are 1-1/4” thick, constructed with two 20-gauge sheets of commercial quality electro-galvanized steel that are formed and then laminated under pressure to a sound deadening double-faced honeycomb core. Face plates are welded together at intervals of 18” on center around entire perimeter to insure a rigid one-piece unit. Edges are then interlocked with a continuous roll-formed edge molding. An inverted heavy gauge channel shall be welded into top of the pilaster for additional reinforcing. Pilasters shall have adjustable floor anchor system including an integral jack-leveling device. A polished 3” high stainless steel shoe of one-piece construction shall be supplied to conceal floor anchoring. Tamper proof shoe assembly held in place by means of concealed floor anchor clips exposed screws are not acceptable. Pilaster tops are securely braced together with a continuous anti-grip headrail of extruded aluminum alloy, polished and clear anodized.
 

FINISH:

Powder coated finishes are applied over electro-galvanized steel containing a zinc coating thickness of .00015”. All components shall be cleaned and degreased prior to application of powder for maximum finish adhesion. A hybrid epoxy/polyester powder is then applied by an electrostatic painting system to ensure uniform thickness. Baking at 345 degrees for 22 minutes cures the finish.
 

COLOR:

Shall be selected from AAMCO’s standard range of color offerings.
 

HARDWARE & FITTINGS:

All material components are fully prepared with suitable internal reinforcement to receive all necessary hardware and fittings. AAMCO supplies factory pre-drilled components for a safer, more efficient and trouble-free installation. All door hinges and strike/keeper will be thru-bolted with sex bolts having theft resistant heads. Appropriate screws supplied for all other hardware and fittings. All fastenings have a corrosion resistant finish.
 

DOORS:

Upper and lower door brackets are heavy non-ferrous Zamac castings that become integral part of door as they are imbedded within pre-formed abscesses at time of assembly. Powder coated finish shall match selected door color.
Top hinge bracket (#102) is a heavy, non-ferrous Zamac casting with chrome-plated finish. One-piece design has a 5/8” wrap-around flange that fits over the pilaster edge for maximum durability.
 
Stainless steel 5/16” diameter pin (#101) goes through the door and the top hinge bracket for three-point bearing. Bottom hinge bracket (#103) is a heavy, non-ferrous Zamac casting with chrome-plated finish. One-piece design has a 5/8” wrap-around flange that fits over pilaster edge for maximum durability. Door operates on opposing nylon cams that are fully recessed and concealed within the lower door bracket. The gravity activated cam assembly provides easy adjustment of door permitting it to rest at any desired open or fully closed position when not latched.
Concealed latch assembly with stainless steel pin allows for emergency access. Cover plate and turn knob (#104) are heavy, non-ferrous Zamac castings with chrome plated finish. ADA lever handles are supplied on all handicap doors.
 
Door strike and keeper (#105) is a heavy, non-ferrous Zamac casting with chrome-plated finish. One-piece design has a 5/8” wrap-around flange that fits over pilaster edge for maximum durability.
 
Combination coat hook and bumper (#106) is a heavy, non-ferrous Zamac casting with chrome-plated finish.
 

WALL & PILASTER BRACKETS:

Shall be heavy, non-ferrous Zamac castings with chrome-plated finish. The wall anchored pilasters and dividing partition panels shall be attached with two brackets of either double ear or single ear design depending on existing wall condition. Dividing partition panels shall be attached to the “rear” pilaster face with two “U” brackets.
