The continuous 5/16 horizontal rods are spaced 2 inches o.c. or optional 1-1/2 inch or 1 inch spacing. Links form vertical chains of eyeletted aluminum 3/4 inch wide. The chains are positioned using E-rings on 9 inches (6 inches) (3 inches) centers. Double E-rings to be furnished at ends to prevent grille from the exiting guides. The bottom of the grille shall be provided with tubular aluminum bottom bar. The bottom bar is to house locking mechanisms.
The bottom bar is to be heavy duty 2 inches x 3 inches extruded aluminum tubular bottom bar. It is designed to minimize deflection for large openings. The upper section interlocks to the vertical links. The lower section will accept (optional) internally installed cylinder locks.
The locking for manual and crank operated grilles are to be cylinder locks mounted inside the bottom bar. The gearing within motors are to be self-locking. The motorized grilles with locks require track mounted interlocks or an H operator with a lock sensor.

The deflection shall be limited to a maximum of .03 inch per foot of the door width. The springs are to consist of helical torsion types designed to meet a 25 percent load factor. The safety factor allows for safe operation, ease of use, and longer spring life. The springs are to be grease packed and anchored, using a cast iron anchor, to a cold rolled steel inner shaft. The spring tension shall be fully adjustable from outside of the end bracket plate. To ensure smooth operation end, the bracket plates shall contain sealed ball bearings to minimize wear of pipe shaft.
