THE door industry journal winter 2018 49 Also online at: www.dijonline.co.uk Domestic Garage Doors ASK us anything! As part of continuing improvements, NRG Automation have expanded their range of add-ons designed to give you more control over selling their products, making it easier and more profitable for you. They will also give your customers more choice, either at point of purchase, while installing the product, or if you want to make additional sales as a retro fit. ASK: Most roller door installers will be familiar with the ASK hand transmitters and wall stations, which allow your customer to determine if their door is open or closed from the comfort of their house via a bi-directional transmitter. This software is now available on The Black Edition garage door operator. Simply press the button on the wall station, and the LED light will illuminate red to advise that the door has been left open, or blue to indicate that the door is closed. ASK: One question the industry gets asked a lot, is ‘How secure will my new door be?’ Well, more secure is now the answer, when combined with The Black Edition. For your piece of mind the Black Edition garage door operator has two systems for ‘burglar’ protection, one electrical and the other mechanical. 1. Mechanical protection Each 1-piece boom has pre-drilled holes at the front of the boom. In the unlikely event of a power failure with an open door, the door can be locked in the closed position a by a self ‘locating’ sprung loaded spigot. The spigot protrudes from the topside of the carrier and locates into one of the pre-drilled holes. This physically locks the boom in place. When electrical operation is restored, the belt ‘shuttle’ re-locates into the carrier releasing the ‘spigot’ mechanism. 2. Electrical security: The software is programmed to drive the door downwards in the event of any physical ‘opening force’ being applied as an attempt to enter is made. The motor controller recognises unauthorised upward movement from 30mm before and drives downwards to the closed limit position. ASK: And do not forget to ask NRG for their test certificate. As a leading supplier of automation, they are continually being asked about CPR and the Machinery Directive and are more than happy to send you a copy of their certification.
