Hörmann industrial door offers ‘impressive’ speed
7th September 2022
The new high-speed industrial sectional door from Hörmann UK, the Series 60, has been designed and developed to provide quality construction, high security, and easy installation. When fitted with the new WA 500 FU operator, the Series 60 can achieve an impressive door opening speed of up to 1 m/s making it the fastest sectional door on the market, helping speed up warehouse operations and reduce building heat loss.
To illustrate just how fast the Series 60 is, Hörmann has produced a speed test film which clearly demonstrates the superior speed of the new door when compared directly with an older version of the door.
Not only does the Series 60 door offer an exceptional opening speed, but optimised track radii and enlarged rollers result in up to 5 dB(A) quieter door operation together with improved stability, leading to low wear and smoother door travel. Easy fitting and maintenance are aided by reduced components and the provision of press-fitted screws, whilst transition sleeves provide a precise fitting of the track and radius. The door is supplied factory set to the optimum speed but can be easily adjusted and the speed varied to suit individual operational requirements.
For added security anti-lift kits are fitted on both sides of the bottom section of the door as standard, and optional RC 2 security measures are available according to DIN/TS 18194. Operator safety is enhanced by the inclusion of an in-line light grill which automatically stops the door if an obstruction occurs whilst the door is closing.
The new WA 500 FU operator features soft-start and soft-stop for gentle, smooth door travel, and constant travel speed for both high-lift and vertical track applications.
The set-up and commissioning of the Series 60 door is fast and simple with the provision of an innovative Bluetooth app. Accessible using either a mobile phone or tablet, the app provides users with friendly, easy to follow step-by-step instructions and also provides straightforward fault finding and diagnostic data.
Phil Thorpe, Industrial Division Manager at Hörmann UK, comments: “We are all excited about the opportunities the new Series 60 sectional door offers the industrial door market. It can provide the opening speed normally associated with a spiral door, combined with the inherent qualities of a sectional door – all at a competitive price point.
“Obviously seeing is believing, so our short speed test film has been produced to illustrate the fast-opening speed in an informative and fun manner.”
