Clopay® Introduces Safe-T-Stop™ Chain Hoist for Commercial Overhead Sectional Doors

Safe-T-Stop Chain Hosit

Garage door manufacturer Clopay is introducing Safe-T-Stop, a manual chain hoist for commercial overhead sectional doors.

Unlike standard chain hoists, Safe-T-Stop features an integral braking mechanism that prevents the hoist from spinning out of control, causing the door to slam down. With Safe-T-Stop, the door only moves when the user pulls the chain. Once the user lets go, the brake engages to hold the door in place anywhere in the opening.

“By controlling the rate of descent, Safe-T-Stop can help extend door life by reducing wear and tear from misuse,” says Clopay commercial products manager Jill Dodson. “The braking system also allows building operators open the door partially to let fresh air inside without using a chain keeper.”

Safe-T Stop’s compact design makes it an easy upgrade for retrofit or new, manually operated sectional doors in automotive service stations, restaurants, warehouses, and drive-thru buildings. It can be installed in about an hour.

Kits are offered with either a 24 or 32 tooth sprocket that fits on a 1" solid shaft.
