This mechanism to be permanently lubricated and enclosed within a steel pipe shaft. Deflection of shaft not to exceed .03″ per lin. ft. The spring tension adjusting wheel is to be readily accessible from outside the bracket plate.

BRACKETS -to be not less than 1/4″ thick steel plate, to contain sealed self-aligning ball bearings for suspension of the counterbalance assembly. Brackets to be mounted to the structural wall angle to form a self-supporting member, and form an enclosure for the hood. Brackets to be reinforced with welded steel bands for support of hoods. Gears to be of high grade iron, cast from machine-cut patterns.

GUIDES -to be composed of structural (steel) (stainless steel) angles, minimum 3/16″ thick, with expansion slots at all connections, assembled with 3/8″ bolts, mounted to jambs at a spacing not more than 1’6″ on centers.
