automatic industrial lifting door

Industrial sliding doors and sectional doors are both commonly used in industrial settings, warehouses, commercial buildings, and even some residential applications. While both types of doors serve similar purposes. There are distinct differences between them in terms of design, operation, and application. Here’s a breakdown of the differences:

load-bearing system

industrial sliding door

The load-bearing system of industrial sliding doors is divided into two types: upper load-bearing and lower load-bearing.

The industrial sliding door is load-bearing up and down. The lower load-bearing is pushed by the bottom pulley. When the upper load-bearing is pushed by the hanging rail on the top. The upper load-bearing sliding door track is on the top. The track is in the fastener and runs in the track. Considering the structure of the door body and the degree of wind load. Most people on the market choose the upper load-bearing and lower-guiding method.

sectional door

The door structure of the sectional door consists of door panels, door frames and supporting components. These components materials are steel, aluminum alloy or other strong and durable materials. It can ensure that the door has sufficient strength and load-bearing capacity. The track system of the sectional door is used to support and guide the movement of the door body. This includes floor tracks and ceiling tracks (if applicable). The track system must be strong, flat, and properly installed to ensure that the door can operate smoothly and bear the required weight. In order to enhance the load-bearing capacity and stability of the sectional door, Additional auxiliary support systems are necessary. Such as support beams, support columns, or other support structures. These auxiliary support systems are usually closely to the door structure and track system to share the weight of the door and provide additional support.

Drive unit

The drive uses a motor to drive the sprocket, and then the sprocket and chain drive the load-bearing wheel to rotate and realize the opening and closing of the door. A special clutch is designed. If special circumstances occur, we can manually open and close the sliding door.

sectional door

Most sectional doors are equipped with a drive mechanism to open and close the gate automatically. These drives can be electric, using a motor to drive the door’s movement, or manual, with an operator controlling the door’s movement through manual operation. The drive must be able to bear the weight of the door and provide enough power to operate the door smoothly.

sealing system

Only by using good rubber and rubber brushes between the door body and the door frame, and between the door body and the door body of the sliding industrial door can a good sealing effect be achieved. The side seal of the door body also needs to be paid attention to. A good sealing system can prevent the sliding door from being in contact with each other during the entire operation and scratching the surface of the door panel.

sectional door

The top, bottom and side rails of the SEPPES industrial sectional door are equipped with EPDM sealing tapes, which are fully sealed after the door is closed. The door panel interface is full of sealing rubber to block cold and heat transfer and reduce heat loss. The 0.45mm thick color steel door panel is full of high-density polyurethane foam material. It is strong and durable, with thermal insulation and sound insulation. Strong industrial aesthetic.

control system

Using dual collectors for power supply increases the stability of the system and greatly reduces the problem of missing components. Protection function is also set up Industrial sliding doors are widely suitable for many occasions. Such as factory workshops, warehousing and logistics, large factory equipment maintenance access doors, and transformer room doors. Due to their advantages of beauty, safety, simple structure, easy operation, and space saving.

sectional door

SEPPES industrial sectional door is equipped with the German Philippe brand control system and high-precision servo motor drive unit to ensure the stable operation of the industrial sectional door. Frequency conversion intelligent control door opens and closes slowly, making it more stable and durable. Multiple expansion ports are avaliable to meet various customization needs. Such as interlocking linkage, automatic door opening and remote control communication.

balanced system

industrial sliding door

In the setting of the industrial sliding door balancing system, most manufacturers will equip it with a wire rope pulley and a torsion spring balancing system. To replace an industrial sliding door in any orientation, keep the door lifted and the system balanced. When the industrial lift door is in any position, just push the lift gently to ensure the normal operation of the door body and maintain the balance of the industrial sliding door.

sectional door

The SEPPES industrial sectional door is a stable and balanced system. It uses high-quality spring steel as the torsion spring like 82B、 60Si2Mn and other materials. The surface coverage anti-corrosion and anti-rust treatment to achieve 30,000 cycles, and client can customize it up to 5/100,000 times. Nylon pulleys, high-quality galvanized steel rails and hinges form a balanced system to achieve light and smooth operation. Level 10 windproof

Opening and closing method

industrial sliding door

1.Sliding Sliding Door

Opening and closing method: Sliding sliding doors opening and closing method is by sliding horizontally along a track. In the opening and closing process, the door body along the floor or ceiling track slides horizontally, so that the door opening part of the door to move to one side to open the door or slide back to the original position to close the door.

Structural features: A sliding sliding door usually consists of one or more door panels that are attached to the track by pulleys or sliders. The door panel can be single-piece or multi-piece, depending on the size and design requirements of the door.

Application Scenario: Sliding sliding doors are suitable for places where a large opening area is required but limited by lateral space. They are commonlysuitable for environments such as industrial plants, warehousing facilities, and vehicle repair shops.

2.Folding Sliding Door

Opening and closing method: Folding sliding doors opening and closing method is folding the door panels vertically along the track. During the opening and closing process, the panels are vertically upwards along the guides on the track and eventually stack on one side or hidden in the space at the top.

Structural features: Folding sliding doors usually consist of a number of horizontally connected door panels that are vertically along guides on the track. The door panels materilas are usually sturdy materials. Such as steel or aluminum, to ensure the stability and durability of the door.

Scenarios: Folding sliding doors are suitable for the place with not enough space . They are commonly suitable for commercial buildings, garages, store entrances and other places.

sectional door

  1. standard lifting: Usually applied to the space above the doorway of about 500mm or so, is the more common lifting method.
  2. Raised lifting: applicable to the place where the space above the door opening is more than 500mm.
  3. vertical lifting: applicable to the space above the door opening is greater than or equal to the height of the door opening places, need to have enough height.
  4. low turn lifting: suitable for places where the space above the door opening is less than 500mm or where there are complex places with obstructing pipes or beams.
  5. Inclined turn lifting: suitable for places where there is a slope in the roof, the door panel can run along the sloping wall after rising, with strong applicability.

In summary, we explain to you the difference between the industrial sliding door and industrial sectional door from the load-bearing system, drive unit , sealing system, control system, balance system, opening and closing method.
