    How the Door Deputy Works

    The automatic Door Deputy System is made up of two main components: the hold-open anti-sag system and the lockdown security system.

    The hold-open system helps to keep sectional doors from blocking the door opening, while the lockdown system ensures that the sectional door remains in its closed position.

    When the sectional door is completely open, the hold-open system is automatically engaged and stays locked until the door needs to be closed. The hold-open system keeps the sectional door out of the way of vehicles and workers at the loading dock.

    When the release cord is pulled, the Door Deputy is activated and the door is released. The door is now free to travel downward. As the sectional door travels to the closed position, the lockdown security system automatically locks the door to help prevent intruders from entering your facility. The Door Deputy System also creates a weather resistant seal between the dock leveler and the door.
