High Speed Sectional Spira Door

The new high speed sectional door

Guardian sets itself ambitious targets in the areas of insulation, noise and pricing. We now offer an unprecedentedly fast sectional door that also offers exceptional insulation performance: the Guardian Spira.

Specially designed rollers keep noise to a minimum, this patented system also contributes to the sleek design of the Guardian Spira. Traditionally, two doors are often mounted in frequently used exterior openings; an insulated door for use at night and a high speed door that is used during the day. The new Guardian Spira combines the best of both worlds in a single product. An investment that pays for itself in next to no time!

The Spira S600 has the same drive system as the Guardian Spira door but uses a standard track system. This door opens 6x faster than a similar sectional door but can be installed into a headroom of only 600 mm. The Spira and Spira S600 have a standard section height of 366 mm.

If you have insufficient back room for the Spira S600, you have the solution of the Spira with a faster speed!

Wicket Doors

The advantage of a permanent wicket door is that the doors for pedestrians and goods are completely separate. This increases safety, ease-of-use and the stability of the sectional door. A permanent wicket door is installed in the façade next to the sectional door, where the design and panel structure of the wicket door and top panel match the structure of the sectional door, unifying them and making them both architecturally and aesthetically pleasing.

 

Guardian Doors Wicket Doors

Emergency Exit

If you intend to use the built-in wicket door as an emergency exit, talk to the local authorities first and enquire about the regulations. The authorities stipulate the conditions that the wicket door must meet, depending on the number of people working or otherwise present in the building. As a rule, four aspects determine whether a wicket door is suitable as an emergency exit: the type of lock, the door width, the door height and the threshold height. Lastly, an integrated wicket door must always open outwards, as is required for any door that serves as an emergency exit.

 

Guardian Doors Wicket Doors

Panic Lock

A wicket door that is to function as an emergency exit must be fitted with a panic lock. Various types of panic locks are available – see page 61 for more information. A wicket door with a panic lock can always be opened using the latch on the inside, even when the deadbolt is secured.

15mm Threshold

To prevent the risk of tripping during escape, Guardian has developed a low threshold height of 15mm. A threshold of this height meets every national guideline on escape routes within the EU.

 
      • Side pass door incl.
      • Fascia to main door height (clear opening side door = production width - 240 mm)
      • Electric strike, including cabling up to side door leaf (without control)
      • Fixed knob
      • 2 x side lock
      • Panic lock

Maintenance Packages

Planned preventative maintenance

See our maintenance section or contact us for more information. Guardian's repair and maintenance services and engineers are accredited to the DHF's TS004 Repairs and Maintenance standard.

It is a legal requirement - as failure to show evidence of maintenance could mean prohibition & enforcement notices being served and fines up to £5000 and imprisonment for 2 years. 'Safety In Use' - the New European CEN Standards legislation - states that all types of door should be maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. For further clarification visit www.dhfonline.org.uk.

Routine maintenance prolongs the operational life of the installation and ensures that the installation is kept in good working order - helping to prevent accidents and damage which in turn results in down time, effecting work flow, productivity and resulting in loss of revenue. It assists in identifying potential problems which can easily be rectified.

Peace-of-Mind Warranties

All our products are guaranteed against defect of material or workmanship by Guardian Doors, subject to correct maintenance and operation, for a period of 12 months from the date of installation.

If the doors are in constant use then go for a touch control. The door raises or lowers automatically to a set position, which can be electronically adjusted, without having to keep the button depressed. An obstacle detection system has been built into the door's bottom seal.

Sectional Cable Break Safety

Cable Break Safety Device

Cable Break Safety Device

The breaking load of both hoisting cables must be six times the weight of a balanced door panel. A cable break safety device is not required if the hoisting cables comply with this breaking load requirement.

If that safety margin cannot be guaranteed, then the door must be fitted with a cable break safety device. This device guides safety cables through a system to prevent the door from crashing down should the cable break. An extra 50mm is required alongside the rail to install a cable break device.

Sectional Spring Break Safety

Spring Break Safety Device

Spring Break Safety Device

The European EN-13241-1 standard stipulates that a sectional door may never descend without being controlled. All manually operated sectional doors must therefore be fitted with a spring break safety device.

This device blocks the spring shaft in the event of a spring breaking and prevents the door from crashing down. With motor driven sectional doors, instead of a spring break safety device there is a self-locking gearbox. This means a spring break safety device is unnecessary, as it is only required for a motor with a release system.

Sectional Locking Device

Locking Device

Locking Device

Sectional doors are suspended on flexible cables, making it possible to raise them when they are unlocked. Design especially for light, electrically operated doors, the locking device prevents this, because without it sectional doors are more vulnerable to break-ins. Manually operated doors are fitted with a spring-loaded mechanical slide lock as a standard. An extra 50mm is required alongside the rail to install the locking device.

Sectional Standard Safety Edge

Standard Wireless Safety Edge

Standard Wireless Safety Edge

The safety edge device is integrated together with a transmitter and receiver in the door's bottom rubber seal. If the signal is broken by an object or person, the door will stop and retract. The maximum contact pressure for the rubber seal is 40kg. Choose the predictive obstacle safety edge if you have products that cannot withstand that level of pressure.

Sectional Predictive Safety Edge

Predictive Safety Edge

Predictive Safety Edge

The predictive safety edge is located 8cm ahead of the door. If the bottom of the door approaches an obstacle, a signal is immediately sent to the motor and the door stops and reopens. This means the safety edge works without coming into contact with people, goods or transport vehicles.

Sectional Stationary PE Safety Sensor

Stationary Photoelectric Safety Sensor

Stationary Photoelectric Safety Sensor

Motors with touch control must have a photoelectric safety sensor if the door is not visible to users while they are operating the door. There are two type:

  • a model with a transmitter and reflector
  • a model with a transmitter and receiver

In both systems there is a transmitter attached to the rail on the control box side and a reflector/receiver attached to the opposite rail. If the beam between the transmitter and the reflector/receiver is broken, a signal is sent to the motor to stop and reverse the movement. While the reflector system is sensitive to dust and moisture, this is not the case for the receiver model.

Sectional Slack Cable Device

Slack Cable Device

Slack Cable Device

This safety device is installed on both hoisting cables and immediately disconnects the motor if one of the cable breaks or becomes slack.
