Hörmann High Performance Doors introduces the Speed-Guardian 5000 LS, low speed high performance door. This model matches the looks of the Speed-Guardian 5000 Series high speed roll-up models, but offered at a lower price.  “The retail automotive industry prompted the need for this product, so they are able to maintain a consistent appearance around the building. The Speed-Guardian 5000 LS low speed has all of the same aesthetics as the Speed-Guardian 5000 high speed models, such as 1-5/8” insulated panel and double-pane windows with Duratec® protective coating, but is less expensive and has operating speeds of 8” per second, allowing building owners to realize a savings for door openings where low cycles will exist;  where they want to have the look of the high speed Speed-Guardian, but don’t need the high speed operation,” commented Peter Burnham, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  The standard lift model Speed-Guardian 5000 LS low speed uses a trolley motor with 15,000 springs for operation.  High cycle springs up to 100,000 cycles are available for higher use applications. A jackshaft motor is used with the optional high lift and vertical lift track configurations.
