Kaba Door Systems has introduced the KOAX industrial door drive.
The KOAX is a separated extra low voltage (SELV) DC motor drive suitable for the automation of roller shutter and sectional overhead doors.
The doors are designed to eliminate the need for spring, gears, drive chains and other conventional systems. KOAX incorporates a zero back drive safety coupling which aims to eliminate movement of the door if a fault occurs. It works continually via battery, only using mains supply to recharge when required. According to Kaba, when compared with traditional systems, KOAX total life costs are up to 75% lower.
David Jones, competence centre manager for industrial doors, of Kaba, said: “KOAX represents an incredibly significant milestone in the history of the door industry and shows Kaba as a driving force in the improvement of industrial door safety and efficiency. The revolutionary design offers a safe, reliable alternative to conventional systems, lower maintenance costs, excellent reliability, improved energy efficiencies and lower design life cost for customers.”
