The distinctive chevron or herringbone pattern of the Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam makes for a quite unique sectional garage door. To have vertical or diagonal lines successfully passing between the sections requires precision manufacture and installation. A sectional garage door manufactured by Novoferm and installed by Lakes Garage Doors can acheive this.
The construction of the Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam
All Novoferm sectional garage doors have the same basic frame, tracks, running and lifting gear. The Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam is different only in the section construction. The engineered boards of the Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam have the chevron pattern routed into the face. The boards a laid up in in layers of solid timber, each layer of timber has the grain at 90 degrees to the next. This gives the board immense strength and rigidity. It is not prone to warping or splitting. The sections are machined to interlock at the horizontal joints. This interlock is designed in such a way as to prevent finger entrapment in the moving door. The hinges connecting the sections of the Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam are cleverly designed to be finger trap protected. The sections are held into the tracks by the wheel brackets. The strong nylon wheels are carried on floating axles. The door is counterbalanced by torsion springs on a shaft above the door. Onto the ends of the shaft are fitted drums onto which the cables, attached to the door, are wound. The springs have spring break devices to conform with with EN 12064 of the Machinery Directive. In almost twenty years of fitting these doors we at Lakes Garage Doors have never known a Novoferm sectional door spring to fail. Failures of any nature on these doors is very rare indeed and is why Novoferm doors carry a 10 year guarantee. All steel parts on the Novoferm ISO 45 Amsterdam are galvanised or stainless to guard against corrosion. Metal parts not steel are cast alloy.
