Insulated Sectional Overhead Doors give guaranteed high thermal performance and low maintenance access to distribution centres and warehouses.
Technical Specifications (typical)
610mm x 40mm thick composite panels manufactured using 0.45mm outer/ 0.4mm liner – continuously hot dip, zinc-coated structural steel.
Galvanised Steel “J” type design to give free and easy running for rollers.
3 Phase (415 volt) or Single Phase (240 volt) – Flange mounted to endplate, complete with starter, open/close/stop facility, limits and emergency override facility.
Sectional overhead doors open vertically upwards, creating clear space in front of and behind the door. Inside the building too, useful space is not wasted because the door sections can be parked underneath the ceiling, parallel to the ceiling or vertically on the wall depending on the tracking configuration specified. Since the doors are fitted behind the opening, the clear passage width can be used in full. This virtually excludes any risk of damage.
Loading bays, warehouse access, commercial centres and industrial facilities and loading are all ideal locations for sectional doors.
We can install roller shutters to existing openings and even incorporate them into the lintels of new builds, hiding all traces of the shutter while it is open. Typical installations are finished within a couple of hours and can be done at any time that suits you.
Sectional doors are generally available as single skin galvanized steel panels right through to double skinned foam filled insulated panels of up to 80mm thick.
Our best selling and most cost effective panel the double-skinned sections are 42 mm thick throughout and have a strong insulating core of 100 % CFC-free polyurethane rigid foam to produce an exceptionally good insulating value.
The big draw for sectional doors over standard steel roller shutters are their ability to control environmental conditions. The panels are insulated as standard, with full panel perimeter rubber sealing and brush strips to prevent heat loss to drafts and maintain a suitable temperature regardless of operation cycles throughout the work day.
We take safety very seriously here which is why as standard, all of our sectional doors are compliant with HSE and are all CE marked as such. All of our doors are installed with the required safety features such as a safety brake to prevent the door from free-falling in the event of a motor failure and a photocell safety edge which stops the panels from lowering if there is an obstacle in it’s way.
Roller shutters and sectional doors, by law, must be serviced by a certified engineer a minimum of every 12 months, more frequently if they are operated more than twice daily. It is usually done within an hour and can save thousands in replacements and repairs in the future, not to mentions lives in a major malfunction.
And remember, if you’re not sure what shutter type is best for you, just give us a call and we’ll provide a full consultation and quotation at no cost.
