Exterior Rolling Open Grille & Hole Gates in New York

Posted by Wendell Daguno on Wed, Mar 09, 2016 @ 08:16 PM

 

New York City and New Jersey often require exterior roll down grille gates to be mounted between two walls.  These free-standing units are mounted to steel tubes that are bolted and/or embedded in concrete.  Our roll-up gates provide security to your open lot.   You can get your gate with mesh material, perforated holes, fenestrations and more. 

Our team of Super Techs are ready to install your door system.  Our Made in American doors are proudly made in our Pennsylvania plant.  Lead times range from one week to 4-5 weeks.

Quick Guide: Low Headroom Sectional and Rolling Door Products for Tight Space Environments

Posted by Jai Patel on Wed, Nov 25, 2015 @ 06:26 PM

In NJ and New York City, space is a premium.  There are really 3 different ways to do an overhead door or rolling door with low headroom.  I have made a quick guide for my customers.  


 

1.  Rytec Spiral Lowhead Room Rolling Door / Low Clearance Garage Door

  • This door is appropriate for high-traffic situations while meeting the low headroom requirements of parking garages and other commercial structures.  
  • The low lintel design only needs 11 inches of clearance at headroom.  
  • The motor is compact with variable speeds allowing up to 60 inches per second.  It has soft acceleration and deceleration for smooth starts and stops.

2.  Sectional Garage Door with Low Head Room Torsion Springs in Front / Low Clearance Garage Door

  • Track is applicable for building applications where headroom is limited and standard track will not work.  
  • Springs are mounted at the front of the horizontal track.
  • Trolley motor operator or push up operation required, not applicable for jackshaft type operators.

Our upward-coiling perforated security gates allow you to easily provide effective security for pharmacies, retail spaces, and other healthcare or food facilities.

The long-lasting clear anodized or premium PowerGuard™ powder coat finishes provide an attractive appearance with low-maintenance care.

The basic operation of these open-air security grills are manual unless you require a larger size that is raised with an easy-operation chain hoist. Other options you can choose from include:

Uncompromising Quality and Functional Design

The  material that makes up the grill for the Model 674 is made of aluminum and utilizes .062” (1.57 mm) thick perforated aluminum panels. The diameter of the perforations is 3/16” and spaced 7/32”. Extruded aluminum with continuous PVC wear strips provides the guide structure, and secure locking is ensured with a center-locking bar and steel throw rods of ½” diameter.

Model 674

This affordable and attractive security door prevents pilferage and comes with a 12-month limited warranty. When you choose the Model 674 security grille for your indoor security needs, you will have a long-lasting and attractive open-air solution.

NYC Roll-down doors and gates visibility requirements

Posted by Jai Patel on Mon, Nov 02, 2015 @ 03:02 PM

Roll-down gates or roll-up doors, are under scrutinity from the department of buildings.  A few years ago, the City Council passed a resolution requiring all storefront shutters, mesh gates, open air shutters, coiling grille gates, coil-up doors and roller gates to have 70% or more in visibility.  The code is forever changing our city's landscape.  We feel it is upgrading the city's look to one that favors a safer and more business friendly environment.  

See here for a bulletin.
