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 wind load specifications. 

BOTTOM BAR
Two galvanized roll-formed steel or structural steel angles which are designed to reinforce the bottom of the curtain. Equipped with rubber astragal or a sensing edge which extends into the guides. Galvanized steel as per ASTM-A653/A653-M 
Option: Exo-Shield™ Powder coating to match curtain. 

BRACKETS
ExoShield powder coated grey carbon steel plate not less than 1/4” thick with ball bearings at rotating support points on drive bracket.  When bolted to the wall, the mounting angle that supports the barrel/pipe 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.

GUIDES
Alpine’s Guide system is designed using structural steel angles with a minimum thickness of 3/16” meeting the ASTM A36 Standard that are bolted together with ⅜” fasteners in 1-¼ ” slotted connections bolted at a minimum 24” on center. One inch spacing of the guide channel ensures smooth operation. Vinyl clip on guide weather seal is standard.

SPRING COUNTERBALANCE
Pipe shall be manufactured with a diameter and wall thickness to restrict maximum deflection to 0.03” per foot of door width.  Springs are 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. Sealed ball bearings as described above are designed to prevent wear on the shaft at each end of the pipe/barrel. Life Cycle: 20,000 up to 400,000

HOOD Hexagon (Option: Square or Round)
Made from #22-gauge galvanized steel as standard and formed to fit the contour of the end brackets.  Optional material in stainless steel or aluminum. Equipped with a neoprene air baffle.  Finish Options: #4 stainless steel or powder coated to match curtain.

LOCKING
Option 1: Slide bolt locks on the bottom bar.
Option 2: Cylinder locks. (Electric interlocks are recommended for motorized doors to prevent damage.)
Option 3: Motor acts as lock.

HOT DIPPED GALVANIZING (OPTION) 
Applied to the guides, brackets and gears in addition to Standard Specifications. Applied where conditions of extreme or unusual atmospheric contamination is present. As per ASTM-A123.

(Pipe Shafts available with Zinc Enriched Powder Coating or Stainless-Steel)

FASCIA (OPTIONAL)
Useful where the area behind the hood is open, as seen in a between jambs type mounting configuration or other condition that exposes the opposite of coil side. Especially applicable with pre-engineered buildings. Finish is to match curtain.

Choice of push-up, lift handles on the bottom bar, removable awning type crank, or motor operation. 

Alpine Motor Operators

Alpine’s Redi-Master® is a heavy industrial-duty, gear reduce hoist operator. Its features include a reduction unit comprised of a heavy-duty worme in an oil bath unit. The standard horsepower of the Redi-Master® steel door operator is 1/2 and has a maximum horsepower. The Redi-Master® includes a hand chain, a maintenance alert system, and a maximum run timer that automatically stops the door if it moves longer than its preset cycle time.
> View Redi-Master® Details
Alpine’s Redi-Hoist is a medium-duty, belt drive hoist operator with an auxiliary chain hoist. It has a maximum 1/2 horsepower and it is available for use on doors up to 10′ by 10′. The Redi­Hoist electric gate operator comes with an emergency floor disconnect for manual operation by hand chain.
> View Redi-Hoist Details
Alpine’s Redi-Lift® is an industrial-duty, V-belt hoist operator that is available for doors up to 12′ by 12′. The Redi-Lift® includes a hand chain, a maintenance alert system, and a maximum run timer that automatically stops the door if it moves longer than its preset cycle time. This electric gate operator is available up to 1 horsepower.
> View Redi-Lift® Details
Alpine’s Redi-Tube is a tubular metal door motor with a built-in Handcrank overdrive. Like the Redi-Midget, it is designed for use on small rolling grilles and counter shutters where a manual chain hoist is not required. It has the option for an auxiliary chain hoist and has a limit switch capacity for up to 40 revolutions. The Redi-Tube is available for use on doors measuring up to 10′ by 8′.
> View Redi-Tube Details
Alpine’s Redi-Midget is UL Listed, gear reduced jackshaft door operator with a high starting torque. This roller shutter operator has full overload protection and is removable without affecting limit switch settings. These door operating devices come with a 3-button station, 1-button station, automatic closing timer and all types of access control equipment.
> View Redi-Midget Details
Alpine’s Redi-Robot is a high quality advanced servo window shutter motor operator in a compact package (4″ x 12″ long) encased in a NEMA 4. Planetary gear for high efficiency and exceptional reliability with your counter shutter. Its electronic overload protection eliminates the need for mechanical clutch. Output shaft speeds range from 70 to 350 RPM.

SAFETY ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION 
Option 1:
Monitored/non monitored sensing edge with a coil cord or take up reel, or a wireless monitored transmitter and receiver type sensing edge, or a non-monitored pneumatic sensing edge.
Option 2: NEMA 1 (Interior) or NEMA 4X (weather resistant) photo safety sensors mounted to the guides 6” above the finished floor that project an infrared beam across the width of the door.  Breaking the beam while the door is in motion will result in the immediate stop of downward travel and reverse the door to reopen to the top limit.
Option 3: Redi-Reverse Light Curtain consists of a 6’0” high light curtain integral to the guides, left and right. If an object passes through the light curtain during the close cycle, the door will reverse to the open cycle and come to rest upon reaching the open limit.

Access Controls
Open/close/stop push button stations, key switches, exit loops, remote transmitters and various other types of interior or exterior mounted controls
