Combining attractive appearance, energy efficiency and robust construction with ease of operation, the ‘U45’ insulated overhead door is ideally suited to meet all of today’s needs for an industrial door.

Incorporating high-density polyurethane foam-filled sections and full perimeter seals, the ‘U45’ will provide a thermal performance significantly better than the level required by current building regulations.

To add to this the ‘U45’ overhead door is available with a choice of 3 different long-life exterior finishes, in more than 20 standard colours.

Of these exterior finishes the 2  preferred standards are Polyester coated galvanised steel or Plastisol coated galvanised steel, both give a tough, corrosion-resistant and durable finish suitable for use in almost any environment.

One of the main advantages of the ‘U45’ sectional overhead door is its ease of use compared with other types of industrial door.

To further speed opening and closing and so reduce heat loss and limit staff involvement, electric operation is simple to provide at any time.

Other options include a choice of six double-glazed window sizes, integral or matching independent pass doors, fascia panels, security locking systems and automatic controls.

A sectional ‘U’ value better than 0.45W/m sq°C will be achieved with the benefit of sound reduction of 25dB across the 100-10,000Hz frequency range.

The standard exterior finish, is a 25 micron silicone polyester coat on galvanised steel, colour RAL 9010 (off white), but this can be replaced by any of the other long life pre-finished colour coated steels offered, or natural aluminium in an embossed finish.The internal finish on all colour coated exterior finishes is a 22 micron ‘white’ polyester coat on galvanised steel. On natural aluminium finish the external face is matched internally.

Is by means of a minimum of two helically wound torsion springs, which are calculated to provide at least 20,000 operating cycles, mounted on 25.4mm continuous keyed solid shaft running through steel cased roller bearings.

EPDM flexible seals, mounted in aluminium holders, are fitted to the top and bottom sections of every ‘U45’ door, PVC vertical side seals are attached to the mounting angles, to provide a protective strip for the door to close onto, and give an excellent weather seal at the sides. Seals are also provided between the door sections to ensure that the integrity of the thermal break between the inner and outer skins is maintained.
