Alpine Overhead Doors, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rolling overhead doors, proudly introduces Redi-Assist™ Manual Chain Hoists for rolling steel and sectional doors. They feature an adjustable braking mechanism for controlled descent of the door. Further, they have a fail safe override which will stop the door should the braking mechanism fail.
This new line of innovative chain hoists comes in two models. The Redi-Assist™ may be used on new or retrofit rolling steel or sectional doors. It can be mounted directly to the wall, or with an auxiliary mounting bracket. The Redi-Assist™ HD is designed specifically for rolling steel doors, and mounts directly to the end bracket/headplate. Both feature a high reduction ratio for larger/wider rolling doors.
“We’ve developed our Redi-Assist chain hoist line to deliver users significantly improved control over conventional models,” says Michael Magro, President and CEO of Alpine Overhead Doors. “These hoists will also help increase the longevity of a door – as they prevent doors from racing and crashing to the floor. The dangers of tangling and jamming chains are also reduced, as is the need to reset the chain.”
