HIGH PERFORMANCE DOORS
RapidFlex™ Fabric Doors
The RapidFlex™ series are high speed fabric doors which provide quality solutions for interior and exterior needs.
Interior Fabric High Speed Doors
The Model 991 and Model 992 are interior doors made of identical curtain material. They both feature a patent-pending curtain lock that increases their ability to tolerate pressure and allows for faster repair in the field. The Model 991 has a strutless design that diminishes operational noise. Meanwhile, Model 992 does include struts allowing for larger sizes and making it easy to replace sections in the field.
Exterior Fabric High Speed Doors
The Model 993 and Model 994 are strutted designs that feature a heavier curtain material better suited for exterior uses. In independent pressure resistance testing, the Model 993 exhibited a pressure resistance of up to 4.0 psf or 76 mph. The stronger Model 994 exhibited a pressure resistance of up to 22 psf or 158 mph. That level of pressure resistance comes, in part, from a patent-pending bottom wind lock and articulating roller wind struts which also diminish operational noise.
All models of the RapidFlex High Speed fabric doors feature breakaway and self-reset, two sets of infrared obstruction detection, wireless reversing safety edges, and an industry-leading five year door system warranty.

Garage doors use parallel tracks to help roll the door up and down. However, these tracks can become misaligned. This will prevent the door from opening or closing properly. This, in turn, gives potential bad actors access to your garage, potentially putting your family or your personal property at risk.
While misalignment is most often caused by gradual wear and tear, it can also result from a specific incident. For instance, if a substantially sized object were to hit your garage door, it could cause damage to the tracks.
It’s important to fix misaligned tracks immediately. Even a small issue can turn into a much more significant one if left unrepaired. This might force you to pay for more expensive repairs or even a complete replacement of your garage doors.
When your garage door is working properly, it should move efficiently and quietly. If you hear loud or odd noises during the door’s operation, this is a sign that something is wrong with your garage door system.
Different types of noise may indicate different issues. A grinding sound, for example, could mean that the system’s torsion springs are beginning to break down. On the other hand, popping sounds could signify that you need garage door replacement panels as they no longer fit together as they should.
Just like with track misalignment, it’s important to fix the issue promptly. Excessive noise can mean that your garage door springs are about to break. If they do, it could lead to a serious injury for anyone nearby.
Another sign of wear and tear on your garage door system is deteriorating door panels. Sun, wind and other environmental effects can leave a panel’s finish faded and dull. This can be a major concern if your door sits in direct sunlight.
Luckily, there are ways to fix the issue. Garage door replacement panels can be installed to remove any faded or deteriorating ones. However, this can also leave your garage door looking like a mish-mash of different panels. It may be more cost-effective to replace the whole door for a more uniform look and prevent further wear and tear issues.
Out of Balance
Everything, including garage doors, work better when they are in balance. When your door falls out of balance, it causes strain and pressure on components that may not be able to compensate for their new workload. Springs may snap, or doors may fall shut. This is a potentially dangerous situation, especially if you have pets or young children.
