Speed-Guardian™ 5000 V U 42

Vertical Lift Track Application with 1-5/8" (42 mm) Panel

With the V vertical lift track application, the 1-5/'8" (42 mm) thick door panel runs vertically along the building wall allowing for very quiet and wear-free door movement. The belt mechanism with counter weights guarantees a long service life with constant use.

Insulated Windows With Exclusive Duratec® Finish - Clear or Tinted

In addition to clear windows, the Speed-Guardian™ 5000 is available with tinted privacy windows, available in Obscured White or Smoke Gray (all window styles are optional).  All window options are coated with our exclusive Duratec® finish which prevents marks and scratches caused by cleaning, and retain clear view after many cleanings. As standard, our windows are insulated:  42 models are double-pane and 67 models are triple pane.

NEMA 4X Smart Start™ NXT Control Box - Standard

All 5000 models include our Smart Start™ NXT, NEMA 4X, control box as standard.  The updated control box has a simplified wiring configuration and is more powerful with fewer components and cables as compared to the original Smart Start™.  A distribution block accepts the activation and protection device wiring; main power cables feed through pre-drilled holes on the bottom of the box where the individual wires, with pre-wired removable terminal blocks, simply plug into the circuit board.  There are extra ports on the control board allowing for firmware upgrades and future expansion.  A USB port is included for maintenance monitoring.

Built-in Light Grid

The standard light grid is integral with the guide tracks making it less susceptible to damage by passing loads.  This system enhances protection of personnel and goods and drastically reduces the likelihood of damage and repair to other parts of the door, saving on maintenance costs.

Application / Size Range

Interior or Exterior applications:

Up to 16’0" wide x 21'4" high.

1-5/8" thick x 10" high panel sections are made of hot-dipped galvanized steel with a urethane foam core and have an R-value of 13.6. Section joints with intermediate seals create a pinch resistant panel. The standard color is RAL 9006 on both the exterior and interior. The exterior surface comes with a Micrograin™ finish, the interior is stucco-textured. CV (complete view) models have a 1-5/8" thick door panel made of double-pane vision slats and a non-insulated, anodized aluminum bottom slat. Finish is C0 anodized aluminum.

Optional windows are 10" high, double-pane, with a Duratec® synthetic glazing, which enables the windows to retain clear view even after many cleanings and with heavy use. Tinted vision slats are a perfect choice for applications where filtered light is required within the interior side, but privacy from the outside to inside view is desired. Tinted color options are: Obscured White and Smoke Gray.

R-value refers only to the panel's resistance against energy loss. U-value is an internationally recognized measurement tool that provides data about the energy flow lost through the total panel construction including the panel, seals, windows, etc. The 5000's solid sections provide the most efficient U-value available today.
