IMB-V8 - Vibration Resistant Insulated Doors

Product Features

  • Insulated overhead security doors with metal backing
  • Overhead steel doors with increased thermal protection and fully weatherstripped
  • R-Value of 8.25
  • 15/16″ Thick polystyrene
  • Optional polyurethane insulation

Alpine Insulated IMB-V8 Doors are used for Loading Docks, Warehouses, Shipping and Receiving Platforms, Healthcare Facilities, Distribution and Retail Outlets, Medical and Educational Facilities.

Functional Benefits

  • Alpine’s IMB-V8 metal on metal insulated slat has foamed in place polyurethane insulation at a min 15/16” thick. The insulation bonds to the metal skin and strengthens the slat. 
  • Front slat available in 24, 22, 20,18 and 16 gauge. Backing available in 22 gauge. Patent # 288131.
  • The door curtain consists of interlocking flat slats, foamed-in-place with CFC-free and HCFC-free polyurethane insulation. 
  • Endlocks are
  • attached to each alternate slat allowing the door to maintain proper alignment as it travels both up and down. If your door project requires you to meet specific windload criteria, we also incorporate windlocks to the ends of each the door curtain slats.

The Alpine Advantage and Benefit

  1. In times of rising energy costs, Alpine recognizes the need for better protectionagainst the elements. To help combat this problem, Alpine introduces two insulated doors designed to provide energy efficiency. 
  2. Both utilize a heat resistant polyurethane insulation with a low thermal transmittance factor. 
  3. To facilitate complete protection against the elements the thermal seal door combines the features of the weather seal door, with a neoprene hood baffle, weather strip guides and rubber seal for the bottom bar. 
  4. Alpine Overhead Doors, Inc., Insulated rolling service doors are designed using computer generated technology and are fabricated according to your specific requirements.

Installation

  • Rolling service doors as manufactured by Alpine Overhead Doors, Inc. 
  • Opening preparation, miscellaneous or structural metal work, access doors, finish or field painting, field electrical wiring, wire, conduit, fuses and disconnect switches are in the Scope of Work of other divisions or trades.

CURTAIN
Constructed of Interlocking, roll-formed 2 5/8” galvanized flat slats, 15/16” thick, a CFC-Free, Foamed-in-Place Polyurethane Insulated Slat that provides protection against air infiltration. G90 coating exterior, G60 coating interior, Structrual Quality Grade C, as per ASTM-A653/A653-M. Slat Options: 22 gauge stainless
steel. Finish options: phoshate, baked enamel or powder coated.

GALVANIZED ENDLOCKS/WINDLOCKS
Ductile Cast iron, hot-dipped galvanized endlocks/windlocks are riveted to the ends of the slats with 1/4” rivets. Option in brass material which prevents sparking. 

Furnish windlocks based on windload specifications.

BOTTOM BAR
Two roll-formed galvanized steel angles which are designed to reinforce the bottom of the curtain. Equiped with vinyl weatherstripping which extends into the guides. Galvanized steel as per ASTM-A653/A653-M.Weather seals are provided on the bottom bar, the exterior guides and the interior of the hood.

Optional weather seals can be provided for the interior guides and or the lintel.

GUIDE
Guides are designed using structural steel angles with a minimum thickness of 3/16”, minimum 1/4” slotted connections and removable bellmouth curtain stops which allow for curtain maintenance without removal of the guides. They are equipped with vinyl weather seals.

SPRING COUNTERBALANCE
To be housed in a steel pipe with a diameter and wall thickness to restrict maximum deflection to 0.03” per foot of door width. Springs are of the helical torsion type which are designed to include an overload factor of 25% for optimum ease of operation. The springs are grease packed and mounted on a cold rolled steel inner shaft. Spring tension is adjustable from the outside of the end bracket plate. Sealed ball bearings prevent wear on the pipe shaft. Life Cycle 17.5M thru 400M. The counterbalance assembly is designed with a helical torsion spring which is housed in a pipe barrel. The springs are computer designed to effectively counterbalance the door for a standard 20,000 life cycles of operation. High cycle springs can be designed to satisfy up
to 400,000 life cycles.

BRACKETS
Steel plate not less than 1/4” thick with ball bearings at rotating support points. When bolted to the wall the mounting angle it supports the counterbalance assembly and forms an end enclosure. Option: Stop Lock Bearing which prevents the door from free falling in the event of a drive operation failure.

HOOD Hexagon (Option: Square or Round)
Made from #22 gauge galvanized steel and formed to fit the contour of the end brackets. Optional material in stainless steel or aluminum. Equiped with a neoprene air baffle. Finish Options: phosphate, baked enamel or powder coated.
