Wayne Dalton, a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial garage doors in the United States, has expanded its commercial product offerings to include two new high speed doors — Models 888 ADV-X and 889 ADV-X. Ideal for applications that see heavy use, such as auto dealerships, parking garages, and manufacturing facilities, Models 888 ADV-X and 889 ADV-X operate at up to 80" per second for maximum efficiency and feature a helical design that requires minimal interruption for maintenance.
Model 888 ADV-X is made of a dual-walled, solid aluminum curtain for security and privacy. For applications where visibility is desired, Model 889 ADV-X features corrosion-resistant aluminum and impact-resistant polycarbonate panels that allow light infiltration. Models 888 ADV-X and
889 ADV-X come with a fully-assembled curtain that arrives pre-wrapped in headplate and trusses, ready for installation, in addition to a completely hinged guide and pre-wired connection for plug and play accessories. The helical design prevents the curtain from wrapping upon itself and rubbing, saving time and money on costly repairs.
“Our goal with the launch of Model 888 ADV-X and 889 ADV-X was to produce two high-end, visually appealing doors that meet the needs of warehouses and facilities seeking a high cycle, high speed door that is made durably with top-notch performance features that can be easily set up and maintained, for years of worry-free operation,” Mark Sawicki, Senior Product Manager for
High Speed Doors at Wayne Dalton.
Both Wayne Dalton doors were independently-tested to determine how much pressure per square foot (psf) they could withstand. Model 888 ADV-X proved capable of withstanding up to +100/-100 psf ultimate pressure and operating under pressures of up to +5/-5 psf. Model 889 ADV-X proved capable of withstanding up to +50/-50 psf ultimate pressure and operating under pressures of up to +5/-5 psf.
