Door Curtain
4mm thick PVC curtain with or without vision panel. Rapid Roll Curtain is welded together using the latest plastic welding technology. The base of the curtain is fitted with a heavy duty box section to form the bottom rail, which gives high impact resistance; which incorporates a fully monitored wireless safety edge facility. Each end of the bottom rail have sacrificial knock-out tabs to assist in the prevention of major damage to the door. Blue finish as standard, other colours available upon request.

5” Outside diameter Electric Resistance Welded tube (BS 6323), complete with uniquely machined mild steel bearing support blocks at each end, complete with high quality “sealed for life” bearings.

Endplates are constructed from 6mm thick mild steel plate (BS 1449), the motor side endplate is prepared with the appropriate fixing holes according to the type of motor being used, the non-motor end is fitted with a safety brake. The endplates are attached to the side guides using high tensile hexagon head set screws. The side guides are fabricated from 3mm thick pre-folded steel sections, the side guides support the barrel curtain and motor assembly. They are formed using a hinged front flap “maintenance system” for ease of repair in the event of any impact damage.

Constructed from extruded anodised aluminium tube, the door comes complete with one internal and external windbar system, which run on high quality nylon rollers. Double or treble windbar systems will also be used where door size and location dictate.

Knock-Out Tabs
Hard wearing and low impact resistant acrylic end cassettes are fitted to each side of the bottom rail. If the door is impacted, one or both cassettes break off reducing the risk of severe damage to the bottom rail. These cassettes can be replaced by on-site maintenance personnel reducing down time and call out charges.

All doors are supplied complete with a pre-galvanised BS729:1971 canopy and external motor cover. The canopy and motor coated are powder coated blue as standard.
