Allura™ Shutter Model 653 

The Model 653 Allura™ Shutter offers flexibility in aesthetic options to match the surrounding environment of almost any location, providing the security and high visibility that many retailers require. This shutter is a new light-duty door solution versatile enough for specialty use, and it offers a space-saving design, making it perfect for installations with limited side room and headroom.

The Allura™ Shutter is available in 197 powder coat colors and several wood grain finishes, offering an appealing look for any commercial application. The Allura™ Shutter also allows for many configurations with the right amount of light and air passage.

The aluminum design of this system provides durability for both interior and non-windload exterior use and functions quietly and smoothly no matter if your shutters are operated manually, with a crank or motorized.

Continuing Education Courses

Are you looking to brush up on the latest industry trends and learn about recent enhancements in commercial and residential product lines? In an effort to inform professionals across the architecture and construction industries, we’ve created continuing education courses certified by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Topics include Wind Load Doors Systems, Rolling Door Systems, Fire Door Systems and Commercial Sectional Door Systems.

Because the deadline and project demands facing architects are many, we’ve made access to our continuing education courses easy. Overhead Door offers on-site Lunch-and-Learn sessions that can be scheduled at your office. Additionally, these same, AIA-certified courses are also available online through the Architect’s Corner. Currently available online courses are “An Overview of Commercial Rolling Door Products” and “Upward-Acting Commercial Sectional Door Systems.” You can request an on-site Lunch-and-Learn continuing education session or suggest a new topic on the “Continuing Education” page under the “Resources” within the Architect’s Corner tool.
