Custom-built extended handles were welded to the door frame with a bar that protruded into the opening, preventing the door from coming down when fully opened.
In Wilcox fashion, we went one step further by attaching limit switches to the handles. When they are in the engaged position, the limit cuts power off to the operator. Even if someone pushes the close button, the door will remain in the open position.
