CONCORDVILLE, Pa. — Southco will present a product information session on its newly acquired Lift-A-Syst product line at the 2016 International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, on Thursday, August 25 at 11:30a.m at the Technology Theater.

Southco acquired CounterBalance Corporation, a U.S.-based manufacturer of modular torsion spring systems, in February 2016, adding the Lift-A-Syst series to its portfolio of access hardware solutions. The Lift-A-Syst Series is designed to make flip-up counter applications safe and reliable by neutralizing the weight of the countertop and providing motion control for opening and closing. 
 

Southco’s Lift-A-Syst units are engineered specifically for controlling the exact weight of heavy flip-up countertops weighing up to 150 lbs and offer a tested, repeatable cycle life validated for 100k cycles of operation.

“Lift-A-Syst provides precise control of heavy countertops by neutralizing the weight,  allowing the user a level of control not found or provided by any other hardware manufacturer,” said Mintzer. “With our Lift-A-Syst series, there is no risk of performance decreasing over time, even when exposed to fluctuations in temperature or the harsh environments of institutional, industrial, commercial and hospitality installations.”
