2017 Product Updates Announced by Hormann High Performance Doors
Hörmann High Performance Doors announced exciting product updates, effective early in 2017. Included in the announcement is the next generation Smart Start™ NXT NEMA 4X control box, which will be standard on all models (with the exception of the Speed-Master® 1600 L Eco and Speed-Commander™ 1200 Dock-Master).
The updated control box includes the following: More power and with fewer components as compared to original Smart Start™; color-coded distribution block which accepts the activation and protection device wiring; additional parts are no longer needed for voltage changes in the field; extra ports allow for firmware upgrades and future expansion; and a USB port is included for maintenance monitoring.
In addition, the company announced the new Speed-Guardian™ 5000 Series of high performance rigid doors, which will replace the Speed-Guardian™ 4000 Series. The 5000 Series offers several updates that will be of great interest to the market: more efficient slat design (new overall slat dimensions are 10" high x 1-5/8" thick with improved thermal breaks in the solid slats), NEMA 4X Smart Start™ NXT control box as standard, and optional tinted vision slats for privacy.
