Industrial Roller Shutters

Curtain

HAG Ltd. Industrial Doors are manufactured from galvanized steel sections as standard. For Industrial Roller Shutters these sections are available in three thicknesses to suit the size of opening and required security level.

Operation

HAG Ltd. offers a varied range of chain or 3 phase electric operations for Industrial Doors. Safety equipment and features are also incorporated to protect personnel and vehicles against accidents, and prevent needless damage to your door.

Operating Motor

For all electrically operated Industrial Doors, a 1 phase or 3 phase motor is positioned at the top of the door which powers all of the mechanical components. An adequate power supply will be required in this general area.

Roller Assembly

The roller assembly is a steel tube fitted at both sides of the end plate which is used to hold the shutter curtain. The curtain rolls around the roller assembly when in use.

Guide Channels

The “U” shaped vertical sections are located at the sides of the door allowing the curtain to travel up and down smoothly and securely.

Safety Brake

The safety brake prevents the door from dropping in the event of motor failure where pedestrian or vehicle access is required.

Canopy

A canopy surrounds the components of the Industrial Roller Door at high level to prevent entrapment and improve aesthetics.

Sealing system

Bottom rail seals are available that incorporate safety sensors. Bush strip can also be placed into the vertical guides to minimize heat loss.

Safety Factor

In the event of an electrically operated door meeting an obstruction when operating, sensors built within the bottom rail system are activated to disengage the door movement. Further safety devices are available dependent on requirements and operational circumstances.

Finish

HAG’s range of Industrial Doors are typically finished with galvanised steel as standard, or you can choose from a range of 75 standard Powder Coat colours. This option gives the door a strong yet aesthetically attractive finish, which is typically applied to home appliances and office furniture.

4. What are the benefits of installing Industrial Doors?

 

5. Specifications

All of our Industrial Doors are made bespoke to your project. There are a number of variations to the standard HAG Industrial Door that will benefit site-specific conditions, including the type of operation, locking, door hardware, colour and vision panels.

When specifying an Industrial Door or Shutter for a project it’s important to consider the following:

Product specification may change and it is advisable to consult with HAG Ltd. technical advisors before specifying or ordering.

 

6. Compliance

Testing must be carried out to EN 13241-1:2003 +A1:2011 ensuring the safe build of each door system, confirmed by a CE Label and a Declaration of Performance Certificate (in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation 2011).

HAG Ltd. has performed rigorous tests and investigation from all suppliers to ensure total compliance, and to give confidence to all customers that each bespoke door is supplied fully legally compliant.

If you are unsure if your Roller Shutter Door, Sectional Door or Sliding Folding Door is compliant, check the CE marking for EN 13241-1:2003 +A1:2011 or call HAG Ltd. The Door Specialists on 0800 072 3444.

 

7. Maintenance

Ongoing maintenance of your Industrial Door is vital to maintain their working performance and ensuring the greatest possible longevity. A regular maintenance contract can extend the lifespan of your Security product whilst reducing the risk of issues developing into breakdowns. It’s surprising how an ignored minor damage can advance into long lasting deterioration, resulting in costly repairs and disruption of your daily business routine.

According to the Regulation 5 of the Workplace (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, powered doors must be “checked at regular intervals, as appropriate, by inspection, testing, adjustment, lubrication, repair and cleaning.”

The current Health and Safety Act 1974 Regulation 18 stipulates that all equipment should be:

All doors should be serviced regularly to correspond with approved construction schemes and must comply with new European regulations. Failure to do so can result in prosecution and can invalidate your insurance and warranty.

A pro-active door maintenance schedule from HAG Ltd. involves the inspection of your door products and replacement of any worn components, keeping downtime to your business to an absolute minimum. Our engineers will visit your site with a comprehensive selection of parts so that a great many repairs can be done then and there.
