Did Linak sell direct to you?

The company is Linak out of Kentucky and the columns I used were the DL2 2500 Newton rated. My original ones were rated at 1000 Newtons each when used with a non AP mount. With the AP1600 and 150# of equipment on the dual column setup, I changed to the 2500 Newton thrust each – 5000 Newton total thrust.

Lymax columns. A lot cheaper to buy Lymax off of Ebay or wherever and make your own telescoping pier.
I have used Park 4 for several years for exactly the roof height issues that you are evaluating. This is for a 1100 mount with a 14 CDK scope. There have been no problems.
I have a PierTech height adjustable pier (http://piertechinc.com/telescope-piers/). When I need to tinker with equipment, I lower the mount and move it to P3, where it clears the roof. To remove equipment, I loosen the clutches (older style 1100) and rotate/lower the OTA to a separate support table before loosening the dovetail. I normally leave the pier at almost max height, in order for the roof to clear on opening.
The adjustable piers are actually from another company, but I have forgotten the name. I think Chris Erickson has these.
