Overhead Door is your ideal provider of the perfect Security Grille for any application you may have. For malls, retail stores, and airport concourses the Model 677 is a popular and durable solution. Designed as a side-folding full-closure grille, this unit is available with four separate panel materials in both standard and wide-body configurations.

Meets Fire-Retardant Requirements

The panel materials offer you the choice of tempered glass, clear polycarbonate and perforated steel which allow visibility and ventilation along with full security against trash and theft. The non-breakable polycarbonate also meets most fire-retardant specifications with a viewable area of 4-3/4” (121mm) per panel. If desired, the solid aluminum panels block visibility.



The Model 677 offers door options of custom radii and curves, thumb-turn guards, and vertical adjustments upward and downward. Additionally, the post types include:

  • Lead post: Hook lock using a wall channel with bi-part, top and bottom shoot bolts
  • Intermediate post: Bottom shoot bolt;
  • Trailing end post: Traveling, fixed, hook lock and wall jamb, top and bottom shoot bolts, carrier

Depending on the post, the available locking mechanisms include: Lead – lock with concealed cylinder-operated hook lock (accessible from interior and exterior); Intermediate – lock with bottom shoot bolt; Trailing end post – traveling, fixed, lock and wall jamb, top and bottom shoot bolts, carrier.

New York City’s Graffiti Shutters & Gates:  Manhattan - Lower East Side/Chinatown

Posted by Jai Patel on Thu, Dec 17, 2015 @ 04:27 PM

NYC has so much charm. Artists will use anything as their canvas, including exterior roll-down doors. In very recent years, graffiti art on exterior roll-down doors has been very popular in areas like Lower East Side, Chinatown, and Brooklyn. It’s not uncommon to see tourists snap pictures with their smartphones to capture this different type of artform.   

A few years ago, exterior rolldown gates were banned in New York City except for historic preservation projects. As time goes by, we’ll see less graffiti art on roll-down doors.  In a tribute to the history of the exterior rolldown metal gate industry, we want to share some photos showcasing metal rollup gates in the Metro NYC area.
