3 Key Practices to Maximize the Life of Your Industrial Door

Over the past 40 years automated industrial doors have evolved with many benefits to industrial customers.  The ongoing transformation from the slow, rigid door to the high speed, flexible, vertical lift fabric doors has brought tremendous growth in the areas of productivity and energy savings.  You want your industrial door to give you many years of service and dependability.  When door damage and premature wear and tear occur, ordering a new door doesn’t solve the problem. There are 3 practices to put in place to make sure you get the most value out of your industrial door purchase.

  1. The continuing improvement such as high-speed, high-cycle automation also brings with it the awareness that there is a lot of risk at the door opening.  Four main accidents occurring with industrial doors are entrapment, downward impact, lateral impact and secondary impact.  Forklifts collisions cause a great deal of damage to doors and can easily be prevented by making the driver aware of proper safety protocols. Proper training and communication of door safety procedures are paramount at the industrial site.  Workers need to understand how to correctly operate the door and steps to take should an employee be hit or trapped by the door. It is a proven fact that high-speed industrial door accidents can be greatly reduced if proper safety measures and training programs are in place and effectively communicated to all workers who operate for door on a daily basis.
  2. Regular scheduled maintenance and cleaning of the industrial door is important to the daily efficient operation of the door.  Doors that work properly keep areas separated and sealed off to provide safety and security for employees and products.  Check your industrial door for visual signs of damage or dents, unusual noises when opening or closing, or a stiff pulsing motion. The importance of checking all safety mechanisms such as photo eyes, breakaway features, activation and control switches must be a priority on a regular basis. Proper cleaning and lubrication of rollers, pulleys, etc. is essential to keep these components protected from corrosion, premature wear and moisture. When doors do not operate properly it affects productivity, energy efficiency and ultimately the bottom line.
  3. Leaving industrial doors open in extreme hot and cold temperatures not only adds to your energy bill but it also puts more wear and tear on the door and your work environment.  When the door is left open, it is continually exposed to harsh temperatures and debris resulting in door components and mechanisms prematurely wearing out and resulting in unnecessary repair costs.  Closing the door when it is not in use protects against wind, dirt, debris, moisture and drafts making the workplace a more comfortable environment and protecting the goods inside the building.

In Conclusion

Industrial manufacturers, warehouses, and distribution centers face increasingly intense competition from a rapidly changing global economy. MAXDoor – Made in the USA – is at the forefront of design and technology enabling industrial facilities to increase their productivity, energy efficiency and safety standards. Door automation should be a positive feature for any facility.  With over 25 years of experience, let MAXDoor custom design and engineer a door solution to match your industrial door requirements.

MAXDoor Provides Intelligence At The Door Opening

The MAXDoor vertical fabric lift door offers smart features that will save your facility time and money in addition to addressing your safety concerns. Industrial doors are the gateway to your plant, warehouse, factory, airplane hangar, aerospace complex, military base, police and fire stations and mine operation.  You want an industrial door that can take a punch and continue operating with minimal downtime. The cost of human error can be significant in the industrial arena. MAXDoor is built to take the guess work out of operating your industrial door.

The brilliance is in the design of the door.

  • MAXDoors can be designed and built for a maintained wind load of up to 150 m.p.h. The higher the wind load, the more robust and heavy duty the door components will be on the door. This strength is maintained even in our very large doors. Operating like a roman shade, the MAXDoor allows the weight and wind load to be transferred from the traveling door panel into the door guides at every horizontal beam.
  • Seasonal weather conditions often contribute to more door collisions due to increased door cycles, slick conditions and an increased dark door environment. Door collisions result in big repair bills and costly downtime. MaxDoors are designed to work smart in today’s fast-paced work environment. All traveling horizontal beams are designed to flex and give way when there is a collision. The beams remain intact and are easily placed back into the door guides.  Within minutes the MAXDoor is once again operational resulting in no expensive repairs or downtime.
  • Energy Cost Savings – Having a well-built and properly functioning industrial door for your loading docks and industrial entrance will greatly decrease the amount of energy used to cool a factory, warehouse or industrial building. In climate-controlled environments, MAXDoor can minimize overuse of cooling and HVAC systems.
  • MAXDoors maintain strength in doors from 10 feet to 100 feet and are designed for high speed and/or high cycle door opening demands.  Made with steel and a dual layer fabric panel, our doors are 2-5 times stronger than the typical rolling steel door. All steel and door components are made in North America.
  • Safety concerns are paramount within every work environment. Our anti-collision, fully automatic, fail safe door control panels minimize the possibility of human error. MAXDoors lifting belts and horizontal beam design limit safety issues when collisions occur. Each door comes with a state-of-the-art sensor that reverses the door’s direction anytime its path is blocked…preventing damage and injuries.

Make a smart move today and find out more about MAXDoor. Through years of experience, we have learned how to design and manufacture industrial doors that last.  Each door is custom built in the USA using the best components available and assembled by experienced craftsmen.

  • Custom Break-Away Safety Bottom Bar –  This comes to you pre-installed where the rubber meets the road.  With this rubber door installed at your facility, damage can be repaired… by your own people… in a matter of minutes. All you need is a wrench and a ladder, and you are back in business with minimal down time, service calls, and repair bills.
  • Safety First – In addition to being the most durable door in the business, the MAXDoor rubber door is also one of the safest.  Each door comes with a state-of-the-art sensor that reverses the door’s direction anytime its path is blocked…preventing damage and injuries.
  • Energy Savings – If controlling heating and cooling costs is vital to your company’s bottom line, the MAXDoor Rubber Door can definitely help.  The door is made of a single sheet or energy efficient, industrial rubber…. so the weather stays outside, and your energy costs stay down.
