New Innovations enable Kaba to launch the next generation of industrial

Technological advancement and re-development has enabled world leading door manufacturer and supplier Kaba Door Systems to launch the next generation of KOAX industrial door drive.

Kaba KOAX is an industry unique separated extra low voltage (SELV) DC motor drive suitable for the automation of roller shutter and sectional overhead doors. Using ground breaking technology KOAX provides safer operation, excellent reliability, lower life costs and energy savings.

Designed to eliminate the need for springs, gears, drive chains and other conventional system components, KOAX is safer to install, operate and maintain. It also incorporates a zero back drive safety coupling, eliminating 100% movement of the door if a fault occurs. KOAX works continually via battery, only using mains supply to recharge when required. The planetary gears and precision in-line final drive system also creates less resistance, the motor driving the door down during the closing cycle. Any excess energy is fed directly back into the batteries. Conventional 3 phase systems require a high amp draw directly from the mains which can produce sharp peaks in energy consumption. They also operate at a fixed speed through inefficient worm gears and other transmission components leading to stress points and extra resistance. When compared with traditional systems, KOAX total life costs are up to 75% lower.

Suitable for retrofitting to existing doors and new installations, KOAX is covered by a 3 year, 25,000 full door cycle warranty, offering excellent value for customers.

David Jones, Competence Centre Manager for Industrial Doors, Kaba, said “ KOAX represents an incredibly significant milestone in the history of the door industry and shows Kaba as a driving force in the improvement of industrial door safety and efficiency. The revolutionary design offers a safe, reliable alternative to conventional systems, lower maintenance costs, excellent reliability, improved energy efficiencies and lower design life costs for our customers.”

Kaba Door Systems has over 80 years international experience in the design manufacture and installation of a leading range of, commercial and industrial door systems. With regional centres across the UK, Kaba also offers a nationwide repair and maintenance service and is a member of the Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA), the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) and is NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA) approved.
