Service Doors – Model Number: ESD10


Roll up doors provide security against unauthorized entry and are engineered to provide protection from weather at exterior and interior openings in industrial, commercial, institutional and other buildings.  Roll up doors are manufactured from slats of formed galvanized steel, aluminum or stainless steel that roll up to store in a coil above an opening.

Seismic Performance Validation – We can provide project specific seismic calculations for all coiling doors that are mounted Face of Wall to steel or masonry. Seismic performance validation is per ASCE 7-05.

Entrapment Protection Devices – Entrapment protection devices ensure that a motorized door or grille will not close on an object.  If an object enters path of closure, the entrapment protection device will stop the door or grille from closing and return it to the fully open position.

Guide-Mounted Interlocks – An electrical cutout switch to prevent motor operation if locking device is not first disengaged.

Heavy Duty Bottom Bar – The HDBB is 350% stronger than traditional bottom bars, preventing forklift damage to your Service or Insulated Door.  The HDBB can pay for itself after the first impact and significantly reduce future maintenance costs.

Quick Repair Door – Quick Repair Doors doors are provided with 3′ or 6′ of extra curtain, an impactable bottom bar and removable lower guide sections.  These features allow for faster repair of slat damage, reducing downtime and maximizing the lifetime value of your door.

Rolling Door Protector (RDP) – The RDP eliminates costly fork truck damage to coiling doors by creating a physical barrier at the top of the door that absorbs impacts.

Static Wind Load – Can be configured to withstand the full range of specific wind load requirements including missile impact ratings.

Mullions – There are multiple mullion options –  corner, fixed and removable.
