Smart Start™ NXT NEMA 4X UL Control Box – Standard

All 5000 models include our Smart Start™ NXT, NEMA 4X UL, and control box as standard. A distribution block accepts the activation and protection device wiring; main power cables feed through pre-drilled holes on the bottom of the box where the individual wires, with pre-wired removable terminal blocks, simply plug into the circuit board.

Extra ports on the control board allow for firmware upgrades and future expansion. A USB port is included for maintenance monitoring.

Built-in Light Grid

The standard light grid is integral with the guide tracks making it less susceptible to damage by passing loads. This system enhances the protection of personnel and goods and drastically reduces the likelihood of damage and repair to other parts of the door, saving on maintenance costs.

Application / Size:

Interior or Exterior applications:Up to 18’0″ wide x 21’0″ high.


1-5/8″ thick x 10″ high panel sections are made of hot-dipped galvanized steel with a urethane foam core and have an R-value of 13.6. Section joints with intermediate seals create a pinch-resistant panel.

The standard color is RAL 9006 on both the exterior and interior. The exterior surface comes with a Micrograin™ finish; the interior is stucco-textured. CV (complete view) models have a 1-5/8″ thick door panel made of double-pane vision slats and a non-insulated, anodized aluminum bottom slat. The finish is C0 anodized aluminum.


Optional windows are 10″ high, double-pane, with a Duratec® synthetic glazing, which enables the windows to retain a clear view even after many cleanings and with heavy use.

Comparing R-value and U-value

R-value refers only to the panel’s resistance against energy loss. U-value is an internationally recognized measurement tool that provides data about the energy flow lost through the total panel construction, including the panel, seals, windows, etc. The 5000’s solid sections provide the most efficient U-value available today.

Direst-Drive Motor

The Compact, self-monitoring direct-drive motor has a patented built-in catch system and is maintenance-free.
