Wayne-Dalton Expands FireStar 700 and 700C Series of Fire Doors


Door manufacturer Wayne-Dalton has expanded its FireStar 700 and 700C series of fire doors to include lift-up and crank operations to combine with floor-resettable and non-tension release features.

Wayne-Dalton made the enhancement to provide dealers with an NFPA 80-compliant fire containment product that covers all different modes of operation required by end users. No re-application of tension is necessary after a drop test, company officials said, resulting in installation-time reductions. Additionally, FireStar 700 and 700c fire doors include patented technology that can be serviced only by Wayne-Dalton dealers, which provides increased opportunities to generate service business.

“These new enhancements provide Wayne-Dalton dealers with new sales opportunities while meeting customers’ budgetary requirements,” said Ali Isham, Wayne-Dalton brand manager.

In 2008, the company introduced the floor-resettable, non-tension release chain hoist and motor operation in FireStar doors. Meanwhile, Wayne-Dalton’s FireStar Door Control Device, which drops the door in the event of a fire, is patent-pending.

In 2011, the FireStar 700C Insulated Fire Door was an Architectural Products magazine Product Innovation Award winner. The magazine’s awards honor innovative products, materials, systems and applications in the commercial and industrial design sectors.

Mt. Hope, Ohio-based Wayne-Dalton, a division of Overhead Door Corp., has designed and manufactured residential and commercial garage doors for more than 50 years.
