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.
