Safety Considerations for Motorized
and Industrial Doors:
Large commercial doors have special safety considerations that should be taken into account as a part of the overall door safety system. A qualified professional door installation company can provide you with the peace of mind you need to assure your motorized industrial door system is safe and in good working order.
Model #ME113 is designed for use on 1-5/8 inch thick doors and are custom manufactured to required length. Our Sensing Edges are designed to provide a safe means of stopping and reversing a door’s motion. Typically powered by just 24 volts, electrically activated Sensing Edges are attached to the leading edge of the door. When touch activated, the internal sensor sends a signal to the motor to stop and/or reverse motion.
How It Works
The ME113 slide in style edge is designed to install easily on most 1-3/8” to 1-5/8” thick sectional doors. Most sectional doors of this size will accept the t-configuration in their existing bottom extrusion- simply slide out the weather seal and slid in the ME-113 Sensing Edge. For your convenience, we also offer a variety of mounting channel options for easy installation.
UL325-2010 Commercial Operator Compatibility
Safety Standards and Codes for Motorized
Commercial and Industrial Doors:
Effective August 29, 2010, Underwriters Laboratories required that all commercial door operators bearing the UL label are required to be installed with a continuously monitored safety device.
Since 2009, the International Building Code (IBC-2009) has required compliance with the current UL325 safety standard.
