M100 FireGard™ System

A fire door / motor operator system where the motor operator is utilized to control normal and automatic fire door closing. This system never requires mechanical resetting and average automatic closing speed is controlled not to exceed 9" per second, even on large units.


FireGard™ EZ Test'n Set

Adds the ease of testing / resetting and controlling speed to manual chain operated fire doors. Each door is provided with a pad-lockable guide mounted test handle. This system is economically ideal for exposed fire doors that do not require the convenience of motor operation.


M60 FireGard™ System

This system adds control wiring to a conventional motor operator to close a fire door electrically in response to an alarm signal thus eliminating mechanical resetting due to frequent alarm testing. A release device is required with this system to close the fire door mechanically in the event of a prolonged power failure, which then requires mechanical resetting. This system is suitable for areas that have back-up power systems.

Fire Rated Garage Doors in Houston, TX

Do you need a fire-rated garage door for your business? You almost certainly do, and if your company is in the Houston area, you can find all the fire-rated garage doors you need at Halo Overhead Doors, including fire-rated rolling doors. We have an incredible selection of Clopay® fire-rated doors for you to choose from for the security of your business.

Do I Need a Fire-Rated Garage Door?

To answer that question, it’s important to understand what a fire-rated garage door is. A fire-rated garage door is a commercial door that has been UL-listed as resistant to a fire breach for several hours. These doors are designed to close in the event of a fire to localize the fire and smoke and prevent it from spreading.

You will definitely want fire-rated doors in your commercial facility for many reasons. First and foremost, your local or state commercial building ordinances may require it. If you do not have sufficient fire safety measures in place to keep your business up to code, your company may be shut down, and fire-rated doors may be a part of those measures.

Equally as important is the safety of you, your staff and your company’s assets. Fire can spread through a business quickly and cause a tremendous amount of damage before local emergency personnel even know there has been an incident. Adequately installed fire doors as part of a professional floor design will cut off the fire from the people and valuable property that may be inside the building, allowing everyone to escape safely and protecting your property and inventory from harm until help arrives.

While some managers balk at the idea of laying out money for the expense of a fire door, they pay for themselves — and then some — if you do have a fire.
