When you’re unloading Halloween gear from that overflow space in your garage (don’t tell me you don’t have a stash of holiday decorations pushed somewhere in your garage) maybe you should give a moment of consideration to your actual garage gear.

For instance, how does that garage door opener look? If it looks anything like the one Nick is replacing in the first picture below, maybe it’s time to replace yours! One of Overhead Door Company of Northwest Indiana’s featured products this month is the Odyssey® 1000 Garage Door Opener.

The Odyssey® 1000 residential opener is available with either a belt or chain drive. The opener’s advanced motor delivers all the power and speed necessary to operate almost any garage door, both quickly and smoothly for convenience. A soft start and stop reduces wear and tear on your garage door, and the DoorDetect™ monitoring system improves overall safety by continuously monitoring the operation of the door, stopping operation when significant changes occur. This feature also minimizes noise!

The Odyssey® 1000 has a ton of high-tech accessories, too. The CodeDodger® security system uses technology that selects a code from billions of combinations each time a remote or wireless keypad are used, protecting your home from potential intruders. Then there’s the Safe-T-Beam® system: when objects pass through the infrared beam, the door automatically stops closing, and then reverses. The system's self-diagnostic functions alert homeowners of misalignment or damage. Crisis averted!

Maybe the most exciting feature of the Odyssey® is that it's compatible with the OHD Anywhere Device and App! The OHD Anywhere gives you the ability to open and close your garage door using your smartphone. The OHD Anywhere also adds an extra layer of security, notifying you when your door is opened or closed, even if the door is operated manually. Nice!

On the business side of things, Overhead Door Company of Northwest Indiana is also featuring their RapidFlex™ Fabric Doors. This series of fabric high speed doors offer solutions for both interior and exterior applications. Let’s break down the different models.

The RapidFlex™ Model 991 is an interior door that features a strutless design to reduce operational noise. This door is ideal for separating controlled environment spaces, such as food and beverage facilities, pharmaceutical facilities, storage rooms, and manufacturing areas to prevent cross contamination. The 991’s patent-pending curtain lock allows the door to withstand pressure and enables it to be repaired quickly in the field!

The RapidFlex™ Model 992 is made of the same curtain material as the 991 but features struts to allow for larger door sizes. Its industry-leading standard safety features include reversing edge, two sets of infrared obstruction detection sensors, and a door stop device.

Next, we have our exterior options. The Model 993 and 994 are both strutted high speed fabric doors, however they feature a heavier curtain material for exterior applications. Both models have been independently tested for high pressure resistance.

The RapidFlex™ Model 993 features static pressure resistance of 76 mph and dynamic ultimate pressure resistance of 53 mph. The door’s industry-leading standard safety features include a reversing edge, two sets of infrared obstruction detection sensors, and a door stop device. The 993 is perfect for parking garages, manufacturing, warehouse, and distribution facilities.

The RapidFlex™ Model 994 is perfect for large openings and is best suited for manufacturing, mining, auto/transit, and parking garage applications. Its industry-leading pressure resistance features an independently tested static pressure resistance of 158 mph and a dynamic ultimate pressure resistance of 75 mph. *whistles*
