REsOverhead Coiling Doors
Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpec™ master specification to specify overhead coiling doors and countertop doors in steel or aluminum doors.
This section includes doors fabricated from individual slats formed from steel or aluminum that interconnect to create a door curtain.
These doors do not require an overhead track; the door curtain rolls up around a head tube.
Door options include – insulated or non-insulated and manually or electrically operated.
Operated by manual lift handle, chain hoist, or fixed or removable crank handle.
Fire-rated doors, conforming to UL 10B, automatically close when released by a signal from the building’s fire alarm system, fire release device, or fusible link. Resetting is required after door operation.
Doors with an emergency egress feature allow building occupants to reopen the door to escape; the door then recloses automatically.

The SimpleSpecs™ master specs concept
Design professionals are accustomed to seeing lengthy project specifications, so why is SimpleSpecs™ so short?
Specifications have grown evermore wordy over the years for several reasons:
The mistaken belief that specifications must be lengthy and legal-sounding to be enforceable. In fact, quite the opposite is true. Having shorter, easily understood specifications makes us less likely to have problems in the field.
A belief that having lots of words protects us from a Contactor making mistakes. There is no way to include enough statements to protect yourself from a bad contractor, regardless of the length of your specification.
Our desire to be in control of the project by specifying means and methods instead of including simple, enforceable statements.
Easier to Edit
SimpleSpecs™ is written as a series of Microsoft word files that include statements that affect construction costs or overall quality and are far simpler to edit than other master specification systems.
Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section is non-proprietary and includes three manufacturers that meet the specified reference standards, descriptive, or performance-based requirements. They are written to allow any listed manufacturers to provide the specified products.
Hidden Guide Text
Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section includes hidden text to inform and guide users in editing the specifications to suit project conditions.
SimpleSpecs™ sections are edited using pre-defined options that are contained in [brackets] or by selecting optional text separated by "OR" statements. Paragraph and page numbering are included as automatic codes, eliminating the need to renumber when revisions are made manually. Global changes to headers, footer, terms, font colors and phrases are easily updated using a third-party search and replace software, available through ZeroDocs.com.
