ADVANCED SECTIONAL DOORS
Thermacore® AP - Advanced Performance Industrial Doors
The Sectional Thermacore® AP 850 Series is one of the finest Thermacore® doors on the market today. Engineered to deliver advanced performance, this industrial door is ideal for situations where you need climate control, durability, strength, and an easy-to-maintain system.
This Thermacore® door is a 3-inch-thick insulated sectional door that is rated one of the strongest and most thermally efficient doors on the market, offering the best insulation value per square inch.
This door system presents the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major US manufacturer of 3" commercial insulated sectional doors with an R-value* of 26, U-value** of .038, and a tested installed U-factor† of .14.
Additionally, this commercial/industrial overhead door is constructed with a dual-barrier that creates a virtually impenetrable path for air leakage and infiltration between door sections, and PVC thermal breaks that reduce heat and cold transfer from front to back of the sections.

* R-value is a measure of thermal efficiency. The higher the R-value the greater the insulating properties of the door.
**U-value is a measure of the flow of heat through an insulating or building material; the lower the U-value, the better the insulating ability. U-value is the inverse of R-value.
*** Installed U-factor is a tested value of actual energy loss - whether heat or cold - of an installed door, wall, or window assembly (calculated per ASHRAE). The lower the number, the lower the energy loss, the better the thermal performance. For the best U-factor, choose finish and color with high solar reflectance (bright colors).
✓ Chain Hoist or Electric Operator is recommended for doors above 10’ tall or more than 400 pounds
✓ Large thermal lites (25" w x 13" h); black frame standard
✓ Optional color-matched frame available
✓ Glass: insulated, insulated tempered, multi-wall polycarbonate in clear, bronze, or white
✓ High-cycle springs
✓ High-usage components
✓ Electric operator
✓ Chain hoist
✓ Cable failure device
✓ Bottom sensing edge
✓ Exhaust Ports (available in 3" and 4")

For applications with advanced security and safety, needs consider extra locks, a sensing edge, photo-eyes, and a cable failure device. For high usage projects consider the high cycle springs and high cycle components package. Ask your Overhead Door™ Distributor for more information about the special application options.
Advanced Thermal Performance:
The Thermacore® AP 850 Series presents the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major US manufacturer of 3" commercial insulated sectional doors.
Delivering further thermal efficiencies, the dual barrier tongue and groove joint profile (patents pending), creates a virtually impenetrable path for air leakage (air infiltration) in between door sections. This exclusive joint profile also serves as a true thermal break, 1-3/4" wide, preventing front and back skins from transferring heat or cold. A second PVC thermal break further prevents heat or cold transfer at the end stiles.
Advanced Perimeter Protection:
The advanced perimeter design of the Thermacore® AP 850 door system contributes to the overall superior thermal performance. A uniquely designed wall angle provides a tighter fit of the steel jamb seal to the wall angle; minimizing air leakage on the sides of the door system.
The header seal ensures a tight seal at the top of the door. The bottom weatherseal, featuring a rigid PVC retainer and dual durometer PVC bulb seal, locks out air and water leakage through the bottom section.
The Thermacore® AP door system furnishes a Sound Transmission Class (STC)†† rating of 22, minimizing noise transfer through and around the door. The higher the STC†† rating the better the buffering is from the transmission of sound through and around the door.
Flexibility in Design:
The Thermacore® AP door system sections feature continuous steel strips that run along the width of each section which allows hinges to be placed anywhere along the section, unimpeded lite placement and easier center mounting of a trolley operator. Operation options include chain hoist and electric operator. The varied options of operation and mounting (left or right-handed) afford flexibility to meet the needs of the facility and application.
Many Options, Customized Solutions:
The Thermacore® AP Model 850 is available with a number of options to meet individual application needs. The large thermal lites afford maximum visibility and light transmittance; available with carefully chosen glazing options that optimize thermal performance including insulated glass, insulated tempered glass, and multi-wall polycarbonate (clear, white, bronze). Lites come standard with a black frame, color-matched frames are also available.
Finish options include two coats of baked-on polyester paint, available in four colors to blend with the design aesthetic of the facility. For applications with advanced security and safety, needs consider extra locks, a sensing edge, photo-eyes, and a cable failure device. For high usage projects consider the high cycle springs and high cycle components package. Ask your Overhead Door™ Distributor for more information about the special application options.
The Sectional Thermacore® AP 850 series is available in several basic colors, so you can choose the right one for your particular outdoor color scheme. Additional features are available on this door including high-cycle springs, high-usage components, electric commercial operators and other options. This level of design flexibility is one of the most popular features of the Thermacore® doors.
