Overhead Door Introduces RapidGrille(TM) Advanced Performance Security Grille System

DALLAS – Advanced safety and operation come together in the RapidGrille™ Advanced Performance Model 676, the latest industrial and commercial security grille from Overhead Door Corporation.

Dallas-based Overhead Door developed the RapidGrille™ AP Model 676 to supply a high-level of performance for applications where security, long-term asset value and minimized interruption to access are primary concerns. Parking garages, industrial manufacturing facilities, government property, shipping-and-receiving docks, retail facilities and performance venues are just some of the locations where the Model 676 is designed to enhance security.

“A one-size-fits-all approach to security grilles is not workable for many properties. This is why the Model 676 not only provides security without a sacrifice to visual aesthetics and air exchange, but also lower maintenance requirements due to spring-less design that will minimize disruptions to operations,” said Foeng Tjong, commercial product manager, rolling products. “At the same time, the Model 676 is designed to perform at a consistently high level over a long period of time, which is why it carries a five-year limited warranty on the motor and a two-year limited warranty on door components.”

Rich in standard safety features, the Model 676 features a built-in stop-lock brake that guards against uncontrolled curtain travel, a reversing/sensing edge to prevent entrapment, and photoelectric safety sensors with guards to prevent sensor damage. Its curtain is composed of high-strength links, galvanized, solid steel rods without secondary link connections and aluminum spacer tubes. The RapidGrille™ AP Model 676, available in straight lattice and optional brick patterns, may also be ordered with aluminum links and spacer tubes, a complete stainless steel curtain or a powder-coated curtain.

The Model 676 features a spring-less design and a wear-resistant guide system to reduce daily wear and tear. The door’s direct-drive gear system and a variable frequency drive eliminate jolting starts and stops. Its NEMA 4X control panel provides a built-in cycle counter and timer-to-close function, allowing for ease of operation while providing rich system diagnostics.
