New overhead sectional door has fewer parts to replace

02 February 2024

AS BUSINESSES face mounting pressure to optimise operations, ASSA ABLOY has launched a groundbreaking overhead sectional dock door with innovative motor technology.

The ASSA ABLOY OH1142P Dual Drive is a next-generation, fully electric and digitally enabled overhead sectional dock door. Making operations more efficient, reliable, and safer than ever before, the OH1142P isn’t just an update of existing technology - it’s a revolution in how overhead sectional doors operate.

Eradicating the need for springs, wires, or balancing systems, two motors seamlessly lift and lower the door on a fixed chain track positioned on either side, saving space and making installation more straightforward. The innovative Dual Drive technology means the door operates with enhanced speed, smoothness and reliability compared with standard overhead doors.

Not only does the door move with more ease, but servicing is easier and faster, with fewer parts to monitor and replace.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems head of business segment industrial Jaakko Kaivonen, says: “We set out to design a whole new kind of smart overhead sectional door to meet the growing challenges facing industries today and in the future.

“Rapid growth in consumer demands has increased the pressure on industrial operations across the globe. The state-of-the-art design, intelligent insights and preventative care of our solution will help to optimise operations and increase safety for workers and equipment in demanding loading bay applications.”

Smart connectivity

The OH1142P Dual Drive comes with the digital entrance management platform, ASSA ABLOY Insight. This system works via PC, tablet, or smartphone to deliver insights that will allow users greater control of their doors, processes and costs. Insight can also be purchased with a lifetime service agreement.
