FEATURES AND BENEFITS
A HIGH-PRESSURE INJECTED POLYURETHANE
- Stronger and more energy-efficient insulation
- Solidly bonded to the steel sheets providing a section that is resistant to flexion.
B SMOOTH STEEL FINISH
- 23-gauge or 20-gauge steel, provides
a bending resistance 15% greater
than 26-gauge steel, for better
resistance to impact and vandalism.
- Highly corrosion-resistant with
galvanized steel having a minimum of
G60 zinc coating (180 g/m2).
C INTERLOKTM TRIPLE-CONTACT JOINTS
- Sections are strengthened by 2 steel
walls joined together with mechanical
interlocking joints which are more solid
than just two bonded walls.
- Their mechanical thermal breaks are
more efficient compared to thermal
breaks made with glue.
- Triple-contact joints provide 2
times more weathertightness
than those of the competition.
D METAL REINFORCEMENT PLATES
- Provide stronger fastening for hinges
and struts. These 14-gauge plates are
2 times thicker than 20-gauge plates
used by other manufacturers.
E WOOD END BLOCKS
- Provide a thermal break that is more
effective than steel end caps which
form a thermal bridge.
- As structural elements of the sections,
the kiln-dried pine wood end blocks
are installed at the outer ends of the
section. They are stronger than insulation
covered with a steel cap.
F LAG SCREW SYSTEM
- Provides much better fastening of
the end hinges. The lag screws engage
8 threads into the wood, compared to
a self-tapping screw going through a
steel end cap engaging only about
2 or 3 threads.
1 Steel walls
- G60 hot-dipped galvanized steel with five coats of protective finish.
G-2020: 20-gauge exterior and interior steel skins
G-2023: 20-gauge exterior and 23-gauge interior steel skins
G-2323: 23-gauge exterior and interior steel skins
- Baked-on polyester paint. Can be repainted.
- Smooth finish on both sides of the door.
- Same quality of corrosion-resistant steel for interior and exterior faces
2 1 ¾” (44.5 mm) insulated door with high-pressure injected polyurethane foam
ensuring a high thermal-resistance rating of R-16 (RSI 2.8 or k= 0.357 W/m2K)
and the solidity of a composite material.
3 InterLokTM joints between each section:
- Mechanical joints ensure stronger sections with walls of each panel
mechanically interlocked (not only bonded by the polyurethane).
- Mechanical thermal break avoids heat transfer between the interior
and exterior walls of each section.
- Triple-contact joint prevents air infiltration.
4 U-shaped tubular bottom weatherstripping made of thermoplastic
elastomer (TPE) ensures the weathertightness of the threshold.
R emains flexible and watertight during cold weather, to -62°F (-52°C).
5 Wood end blocks made of kiln-dried pine (grade 4). With our lag screw system,
ensure better fastening of the end hinges. They also provide a thermal break
which prevents thermal bridging.
6 14-gauge steel reinforcement plates placed inside the door for solidly attaching
hinges and struts.

|Hardware options|| |
|Precision end bearing plate 3||For 650 lb (250 kg) doors and over, to provide stronger support for the opening|
system of the door.
|Double hinges||Recommended for doors 14’ and wider, for a more stable mounting system.|
|11-gauge hinges||For very wide and very heavy doors, |
1 000 lb (453 kg) and over
|12-gauge continuous angle||Provides stronger attachment of the tracks on the wall.|
|1 1⁄4” (30 mm) solid shart||Provides more strength to the spring system.|
|Bridge strut||Ensures better resistance to wind load (see drawing on page 23).|
|Safety bottom brackets||For a safer door system. If the lifting cables break, these brackets stop the fall of the door.|
|Tension bridge reinforcement||For very wide doors (18’ 3” wide and over), prevent warping of the steel door sections, meaning the curving of sections which can|
be caused by indoor and outdoor temperature differences.
|Precision rollers||Machined steel: recommended for heavy doors and dusty environments.|
Black nylon: made of rigid plastic, they reduce the noise of the door in motion.
Rubber: ensure smooth rolling and are recommended to reduce the noise of the door in motion (ideal for condo or apartment).
NB-SS: with a stainless stem, ideal for car washes.
|C-shaped or bumper springs||For a softer stop, they are recommended for all manually-operated doors with a high-lift track or a full vertical track|
(see drawings on pages 21 and 22).
|Pusher springs||Highly recommended for large size doors with a standard lift (see drawing on page 21) with a Jackshaft opener installed beside the|
door. They ensure the good tautness of the lifting cables when the door is operating.
|Chain hoist||For easier closing and opening of a door operated manually.|
|"Z" or "L“ style track guards||Protect the tracks in high-traffic areas (ex.: forklifts). (see drawings on page 22)|
|High-cycle springs||Recommended for intense uses of more then 50 operation cycles per day. Vary from 25,000 to 200,000 cycles.|
