Overhead Door Introduces Advanced Performance Insulated Rolling Steel Door

DALLAS — Overhead Door Corporation's Stormtite™ AP Model 627 offers commercial and industrial facility owners the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major U.S. manufacturer of insulated rolling steel doors. The new door system is the first with a published, tested U-factor rating and features the highest calculated R-value for added thermal resistance.

"Our market research indicates a growing demand for improved thermal efficiency and security. Therefore, we developed the Model 627 to provide customers the thermal efficiency needed for uninterrupted business operations," said Foeng Tjong, commercial product manager, rolling products. "Its superior thermal performance, durability and security features make the 627 the choice for the most demanding commercial and industrial applications."

Model 627 doors are constructed for maximum thermal performance. Each door surpasses International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requirements, minimizes air transfer and reduces operating costs.

The door system provides unmatched thermal performance values for a rolling steel door with an R-value of 10.9, a U-value of 0.09 and a tested installed U-factor of 0.84. Additionally, exterior and interior EPDM triple-finned guide brush weather seals, along with hood, bottom bar and lintel weather seals, diminish air leakage around the perimeter.

The 627 also delivers 20 psf (design pressure) of wind load protection, equivalent to approximately 90-110 mph wind speed, and can be built to accommodate higher wind loading upon request. 

For added security, Stormtite™ AP doors are constructed of interlocking slats with endlocks and/or windlocks that provide resistance against forced exterior entry.

The Stormtite™ AP Model 627 provides additional customization options, such as:

• Standard chain hoist operation or crank and motor operation options;

• Large insulated vision lite featuring thick dual-wall polycarbonate for advanced insulation properties, maximum visibility and light transmittance;

• Slat options that include steel (standard), stainless steel or aluminum;

• Four standard colors plus the option of PowderGuard™ Zinc Premium powder coat finish in 197 colors or color-matched to specification; and,

• PowderGuard™ Zinc and PowderGuard™ Weathered finishes available for bottom bar angles and guides.

"The Model 627 is the ultimate package for architects and building owners because it provides industry-leading thermal performance and security," said Tjong. "Between its R-value, U-factor and advanced weather seals, it's the most sophisticated rolling service door on the market today."
