Elero's Econom is a maintenance-free line of electric linear actuators for active façade systems that control building heating loads and glare, and improve occupant viewscapes. These stainless-steel-clad, weather-resistant actuators are appropriate for outdoor or indoor use, and can also be components of natural ventilation systems. Used in Europe and Asia for many years, but new to the North American market, the slender, 2.5-inch diameter devices have load-bearing capacities of as much as 675 foot-pounds. The Econom line is manufactured by the German company Elero GmbH, which specializes in drive units and control systems for roller shutters, sun protection systems, and gates.
