Overhead Door™ Brand’s Heavy Duty Rail Provides Unmatched Strength and Rigidity for Large and Heavy Residential Doors

Universal accessory turns virtually any opener into a heavy-duty opener that can lift doors upwards of 500 pounds   

February 26, 2020 – Overhead Door Brand, one of the leading manufacturers of doors and openers for residential, commercial and industrial applications, has launched the Overhead Door Heavy Duty Rail, a double reinforced, C-Channel rail to support the industry’s tallest and heaviest residential doors. Compatible with all existing Overhead Door openers, the Heavy Duty Rail can supplement any screw, belt, or chain drive models, reinforcing the motor rail, and bolstering the opening system.

“While the Heavy Duty Rail weighs approximately twice as much as a standard rail of the same length and drive type, it can be installed by a single technician with ease. The sturdy design keeps rail deflection at a minimum to offer homeowners confidence in its performance,” explained Christian Morrow, Brand Manager for Overhead Door Brand. “Keeping our customer and installer needs top of mind, Overhead Door Brand is offering an opener accessory that can accommodate door sizes that often have limited options and are simple to handle on the jobsite.” 

The Heavy Duty Rail features easy-installation components as the rail comes pre-assembled in one or two pieces depending on the size. Further assembly of the powerhead to the rail can be completed with just four screws. The product offers installers and customers additional peace of mind by carrying the same warranties as their standard duty alternatives. On a screw drive opener, the Heavy Duty Rail has a limited lifetime warranty. Belt models offer a 15-year warranty and chain models offer a five-year warranty.
