This refers to the length of the door that is needed to cover the opening when the door is closed.
The hanging iron is the same as an angle iron. See angle iron.
There are many hardware options available to you. These include 11-gauge hinges, 12 gauge continuous angle, bridge strut, precision rollers, safety bottom brackets, and more. Talk with one of our technicians to determine what hardware you need for your garage door.
There are several hardware systems you need for your garage door to function. These include tracks, hinges, rollers, springs, struts, and more.
This is used to support the lifting drum and is located on the edge of the door.
This is the length of space you need between the tracks and the ceiling for the door to operate.
Welding using helium or argon that creates an inert gas-shielded arc.
This is another word for trajectory. See trajectory.
This is the length of space that is measured from the header to the underside of the horizontal track for high lift doors.
This drum is designed to balance a high lift door. It is contoured to aid in the balancing.
When you have a vertical lift door, you need the right track and hardware to door raise above the top of the door opening before it gets into the horizontal position.
The high moment arm refers to the radius around the cable drum including the cable.
A hinge is attached to two sections of the garage door to allow them to move when the door is raised or lowered.
Hinges need a support plate to attach to. The support plate is screwed into the panel and then the hinge is put on top of that.
The hinge tube is a cylindrical part that connects two leafs together.
Hinges are used to join panels together so that they move when the door is raised or lowered.
This is used in case of power failure. It works like the jackshaft-type opener, but has an emergency chain that can raise the door when the power goes out.
The horizontal rise causes the door to start down the track and puts tension on the garage door cable.
* Track- The horizontal track is the part of the track assembly that is horizontal.
* Angle- The track has an “L” shaped angle fixed to it called the horizontal Track angle.
* Assembly- When the door is in a horizontal position, it relies on the horizontal track assembly to keep it in place.
* Track Radius- The horizontal radius can also be referred to as the track radius.
When your garage door lifts off the floor without you doing anything, it can be referred to as “hot off the floor”.
