- For use with vertical lift, high lift, behind rolling steel door, and stand-alone doors.
- Product Overview:
The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door is designed to ventilate any commercial facility, while preventing the security problems that occur when overhead loading dock doors are left open. The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door eliminates entrance by unauthorized people and is a deterrent to employee theft.
The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door operates in it’s own track, as the preferred method, or is added to the existing overhead door’s track system. Using the existing door’s lower vertical track, we add a track switch mechanism at the top of the opening, a second set of upper tracks, and a sectional Chain-Link Security Door. The unique track switch design allows for the independent use of The Chain-Link Security Door and the existing overhead door, without manual intervention. The sections are multiple configurations of 3’1”, 4’ 1” and/or 5’ 1” high panels.
- With High Lift and Vertical Lift Overhead Doors
The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door can be used in new construction or retrofitted into any existing high lift or vertical lift loading dock doors using the track switch mechanism. It utilizes the same vertical track as the existing door.
The preferred application approach for high lift and vertical lift loading dock doors is to install a second (dual) track behind the existing door’s track. Galvanized steel, reverse angle side plates close any gaps created by the second track. The advantage of the dual track is the ability of the user to place The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door in the down position and place the existing door at any level within the opening, allowing the user to regulate the amount of airflow allowed into the facility.
- With Rolling Steel Doors
- With rolling steel door applications, a separate track is used. The Bug Blocker® Overhead Chain-Link Security Door can be mounted behind the rolling door’s track. Since two tracks are utilized, the user can place The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door in the down position, and place the rolling door at any level within the opening, allowing the user to regulate the amount of airflow allowed into the facility.
- Side Sliding Chain Link Security Door
- The side sliding Chain-Link Security Door can be used stand alone or mounted over the existing side sliding door.
- Stand Alone Chain-Link Security Door
- The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door can be used as the only door for a high lift, vertical lift, or side sliding loading dock openings.
- Overhead Chain-Link Security Door Options:
- Electric Operator
- The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door can be motor operated, using industry standard jackshaft operators. A solid torsion bar should be specified in this application. In a switched track application an interlock switch should be specified if either/both doors are to be motorized, one per motor.
- The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door provides users with a permanent solution for controlling employee theft, and unauthorized entry. Its galvanized steel 2” diamond fencing material allows easy wash-down from high-pressure hoses. The Overhead Chain-Link Security Door should be considered for Homeland Security programs. Current customers include military, government locations, prisons, nuclear plant facilities. Commercial customers using The Chain-Link Security Door includes high technology electronics plants, distribution centers, and all types of manufacturing plants, storage facilities and industrial areas. Any company with security concerns can benefit from this product.
