"Thermal Guard" Insulated Service Doors

When an application requires protection against the elements the "Climate-Guard" service door is the solution. Rain, dust and wind are kept at bay by vinyl weatherstripping at the footpiece, guides and hood. Designed for sizes up to 30' wide and 30' high these doors are constructed to weather the storm and provide years of worry free service.

All R&S doors are designed to withstand up to 80 mph winds and can be upgraded for more severe weather conditions. Curtains can be ordered in standard grey or in tan with contrasting black guides and footpiece. A galvanized steel finish is also offered providing the look and protection of stainless steel without the cost.

Thermal Guard Insulated Service Door Options

Increased Windload Capacity: curtain designs to withstand windloads exceeding 20PSF
High Cycle Construction: designs to provide up to 150,000 operating cycles or maximum possible in design
Vision Lites: single or multiple 3" wide cutouts with 3/4"thick acrylic in opening

Safety Bearing: This unique safety device functions as both a bearing and inertia brake for motorized service doors and grilles. The safety bearing is designed to prevent the curtain from free-falling if there is damage to or failure of the motor operator, drive chain or spring assembly. If a malfunction occurs and the downward speed increases to an unsafe rate, the inertia brake absorbs the added energy and safely stops the load.
Powdercoat Finish: a durable and decorative finish for steel or aluminum surfaces. It provides longer life and requires less maintenance than a standard finish. Powder coating is available in a variety of colors for use on many products. Consult factory for color selection, applications and limitations.
