Wayne Dalton Announces Industry-First Residential Security Shutter Model 523RX

World-class designer of garage door solutions offers its first-ever residential exterior security shutter curated for urban and suburban areas 

Wayne Dalton, a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial door solutions, has launched Model 523RX Security Shutter, an industry-first product UL-325 listed door and operator system for securing exterior access to residential properties. This door system is designed to be installed at the driveway access from the street or entrance to residential properties in high traffic areas, preventing unwanted access. 

“For urban and suburban areas where homes are typically closer together, or even major cities that are densely populated, lack of security for parking and outside access to homes is a common issue. Model 523RX is a unique innovation that delivers real value to homeowners seeking a solution to this problem,” said Jennifer Castro, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Wayne Dalton. “Model 523RX is a unique product that incorporates a premier design and improves security.”

Available with options to give homeowners the ability to retain visibility while maintaining security, Model 523RX is offered in fully perforated or fenestrated patterns, allowing for 22 percent and 24 percent open area respectively. The door is an UL 325 listed residential exterior security shutter opener with a weather resistant motor enclosure. This feature provides benefits such as a quiet and smooth-running motor with direct drive operation of the shutter with monitored photo eyes and force detection for safe operation.

“We wanted a subtle, yet reliable solution that gives homeowners peace-of-mind when it comes to protecting one of their most valuable assets, their home,” added Castro. 

The Model 523RX Security Shutter offers an aesthetically pleasing security system due to its extruded aluminum curtain and compact and visually appealing design that comes in a variety of finish and slat options. Consumers have the ability to choose from one of four standard powder coat colors: silver, bronze, white or almond to achieve ultimate curb appeal when the shutter is closed. Users also have the option to customize the powder coat color by selecting from approximately 200 RAL colors or color match to architect specifications.

The security shutter door is available up to 16’ high x 12’ wide and has a two year limited warranty on its parts, components and finish. For additional security, cylinder locking options are also available.
