Speedy door saves time, money

October 2017

Assa Abloy, a global leader in door opening solutions, is offering its OH1042S overhead sectional speed door, which has been designed with a modified control system and reinforced construction to increase speed.

“Speed improves your working environment, increases safety, reduces energy expenses and benefits your business,” says a spokesman for Saudi Crawford Doors Factory.

He says for businesses with frequently used doors, vehicles of different height, concerns of temperature control, regular door-collisions or an interest in reducing noise and dust, speed provides an invaluable advantage. “With an operating speed of 1 m per second, the Assa Abloy OH1042S not only saves time but gives it back to you,” he adds.

Additionally, he says speed gives control over indoor climate with a faster closing time. It has tight seals for water tightness, wind load and air permeability. More regulation over temperature means less heat loss, less wasted energy, and lower CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions.

The door offers safety, comfort and convenience. When the door’s photo-cell light grid detects an obstacle in the door opening, it stops the door immediately, reducing the risk of accidents and injury. Because the door is faster, the risk of collisions with vehicles and loading materials while opening is much lower. The quick operation time prevents unwanted drafts and lowers noise levels to create a better, healthier work environment for employees.

The Assa Abloy OH1042S can be customised to the needs of a client. “Configure track systems, select the colour of the door, and choose the shape, number and placement of windows. There are literally thousands of options so you can tailor your door to your unique operation,” says the spokesman.

It also offers several variations of windows in different materials with burglar resistant frames are available.

The Crawford brand has been part of Assa Abloy Entrance Systems for a while. In 2011 Cardo, the parent company of both Crawford and Megadoor was acquired by the Assa Abloy Group and both are now product brands of Assa Abloy Entrance Systems.
