Hormann's Speed-Guardian 4000 H High Lift Door Receives Plant Engineering 2014 Product of the Year Award

Hormann's Speed-Guardian™ 4000 H high performance door with unique high lift tracks, won the Silver award in the Material Handling Systems category of Plant Engineering's 2014 Product of the Year competition.  The competition concluded with 48 winners selected within 14 categories, each presenting innovative product development; winners were selected by Plant Engineering subscribers.

The Speed-Guardian™ 4000 H high performance door with high lift tracks is designed for applications with obstructions around the door opening.  The panel is guided inside higher than usual vertical tracks to the point where there is enough space for the horizontal track to run.  This flexible mounting design allows the door to be installed behind or above supply lines, crane tracks or support beams.  Thanks to the belt mechanism with counter weights, the door is especially low-wear and long lasting.
