Steel & Stainless Steel Counter Doors

R&S Steel and Stainless Steel Doors combine strength and durability with compact design and neat appearance. Although primarily utilized as a closure on counter openings, these doors may also be used on openings large enough to provide walk-thru or drive-thru access. Counter doors can be modified in construction to meet stainless steel service door requirements up to 16 feet wide, 10 feet high at a maximum of 144 square feet. Stainless Steel Counter Fire Door

Steel & Stainless Steel Counter Door Options

Increased Windload Capacity: curtain designs to withstand windloads exceeding 20PSF
High Cycle Construction: designs to provide up to 150,000 operating cycles or maximum possible in design
Perforated Slats: 3/64" diameter holes on 5/64" staggered centers in type 25 slats provide 30% open area for ventilation and visibility throughout the curtain
Vision Lites: single or multiple 3" wide cutouts, open for ventilation or covered with acrylic
Intermediate Grille: partial grille curtain connecting type 30 slats above and below
Sloped or Stepped Footpiece: for special sill conditions
Cylinder Locks: on footpiece or guide
Galvanized Finish: on footpiece, guides, brackets and barrel
Safety Bearing: This unique safety device functions as both a bearing and inertia brake for motorized service doors and grilles. The safety bearing is designed to prevent the curtain from free-falling if there is damage to or failure of the motor operator, drive chain or spring assembly. If a malfunction occurs and the downward speed increases to an unsafe rate, the inertia brake absorbs the added energy and safely stops the load.
Powdercoat Finish: a durable and decorative finish for steel or aluminum surfaces. It provides longer life and requires less maintenance than a standard finish. Powder coating is available in a variety of colors for use on many products. Consult factory for color selection, applications and limitations.
Tubular Motor Operator: motors completely contained within the barrel can be provided for counter doors up to 84 square feet in limited usage applications. Only the manual crank override is visible outside the bracket. The units are available in 115 volt/single phase with constant contact one button or keyswitch control. They can also be provided with a low voltage controller when options such as a reversing edge or timer are required.
