Challenge: Guardian rolls and supplies track and brackets for many garage door OEMs. Sectional garage door track and brackets have remained virtually unchanged for over 60 years as has sectional door assembly. How could Guardian capabilities be utilized to advance the product and provide added value?

Solution: The plastic radius was developed. The nylon radius is unique, provides a clean look and provides a quiet guide for rollers. The radius also eliminates the flag bracket and end bearing bracket fastening as end bearings can be quickly inserted into place. Track easily slides into place, offers a seamless transition and easy adjustability. Unlike the traditional horizontal track the nylon radius is easy to ship and carry to the job site.
