A Motorized Gym Divider Curtain is mounted to the ceiling and raised and lowered by a motor. The divider folds up as it is raised. The biggest advantage is that one person can raise and lower the curtain on his/her own.
It’s important to note that Motorized Gym Dividers must be attached to a joist, so the building needs to be designed to support them.
