Belco Doors created an innovative swing door elevator interlock that prevents the elevator from moving when the doors are not properly closed. This work was performed in collaboration with Conestoga’s SMART Centre. The Centre for Commercialization (C4C) identified patentable subject matter in the interlock design.

“C4C significantly enhanced our trajectory, enabling us to navigate the complexities of IP protection and patenting with confidence and clarity.” - Derek Moorse, Partner, VP, Belco Doors
