Why The Waste Handling Industry Uses MAXDoors

A solid waste handling facility needs to have a dependable and high functioning door installed on buildings that store all types of solid waste.  The MAXDoor is a vertical lift fabric door designed and built in the USA and provides intelligence at the door opening. Your collection facility requires a door with low maintenance, high speed operation and built to run 24/7.

MAXDoor, custom made to fit any size door opening, will provide a door that will give you peace of mind because of the following features:

  • Minimum load on building structures
  • Fabric that provides excellent chemical resistance
  • Low maintenance due to unique design and high-quality components
  • 5X’s stronger than rolling steel doors

MAXDoor is extremely low maintenance when compared to other door solutions.  At waste facilities, often government regulations require that doors be kept operational and closed during normal daily operations.  By not adhering to government regulations, a facility can incur costly fines.  Your waste handling facility needs a door that requires little to no repairs.  Downtime costs companies a lot of money.  MAXDoor is designed with lifting belts and horizontal beams.  All traveling horizontal beams will flex and give way if a collision occurs.  The fix is a simple and inexpensive one. With door guides free of any mechanical devices, door downtime due to collisions is minimized. Just place the beams back into the door guides, and the MAXDoor is back in operation.

MAXDoor is one of the safest doors made because the lifting belts are free to travel with a door panel that has been hit. At a waste facility where many trucks are in and out every day, door collisions are bound to happen.  You want to keep your employees and truck drivers operating in a very safe environment and MAXDoor definitely adds to the safety factor.

With years of experience, MAXDoor can design and manufacture a custom door to fit your specific needs at your waste handling facility.  To request a proposal or speak directly to a door expert, call 248-915-5838.  Visit our website at maxdoor-usa.com.

A Maintenance Free Solution

Maintaining an industrial door can be costly.  With a vertical lift fabric door, MAXDoor, your cash output for repairs will be eliminated.  In addition, MAXDoor has a service life of 20-25 years.  In the long run, a maintenance free door equals savings to you and your bottom line.

On your basic steel rollup door, there is a list of items that constantly need repaired or replaced:  lift cables, bearings, rollers, hinges, coil cords, weather seal, door guides.  Not only will you pay the cost for materials buy you will also pay the high cost of labor.  In addition, when your door is down, your business no longer works efficiently, and you lose money.  Repairs and downtime are a very expensive, ongoing expenditure.

Purchasing a MAXDoor saves you money and let’s explain why:

  1. High Wind Capacity – the door tolerates high winds, barely moves, and this eliminates door damage and door repair. In addition, you benefit by having more floor space in your building because there is no billowing of the door or door curtain eating up valuable floor area. MAXDoor can be custom designed and built for a maintained wind load of up to 150 mph.
  2. The way a MAXDoor operates is key to repair cost savings.  The door operates like a roman shade allowing the weight and wind load to be transferred from the traveling door panel into the guides at every horizontal beam. All traveling beams are designed to flex and give way upon impact.  The beams are easily put back into the door guides resulting in zero repair costs.
  3. MAXDoor provides maximum strength. The door panel is built with 4”, 6” or 12” thick double-layer fabric.  The fabric overlaps the door guides to provide a weather-tight seal and maintains a high wind load.  MAXDoors are self- supporting and do not put additional load on the building. Our doors can be installed on the interior and exterior side of a wall.
  4. With the right industrial door in place – MAXDoor – you can reduce energy costs by 50%.  Running a business means doors open and close allowing materials and supplies to enter and exit your facility. Having the best door in place for your needs can offer tremendous savings.  MAXDoor recently conducted an evaluation of a facility using a door 16FT tall and 16FT wide. To get the results of this amazing study (and you will be shocked), contact us at sales@maxdoor-usa.com or call 248-915-5838 and ask for a MAXDoor representative.
  5. MAXDoor offers an option to allow sunlight into your facility with the optional use of a translucent fabric.  The fabric allows more sunlight/daylight into your building.  Not only is your facility brighter with natural light, the sunlight also provides warmth especially in those cold winter months.  Allowing sunlight/daylight through your industrial door equals savings on your lighting and heating bill.

If your warehouse, facility, factory, or workshop could benefit by having a maintenance free industrial door that reduces your energy bills, contact sales@maxdoor-usa.com.  We are here to answer all of your questions and custom design a MAXDoor that meets all of your needs.

MAXDoor Is The Right Fit for the Steel and Aluminum Industry

Customize a MAXDoor With Your Logo Or Creative Artwork

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Customize your MAXDoor with a logo, symbol, words or design.  MAXDoor has developed a unique way to attach your logo or creative artwork to the vertical lift fabric MAXDoor. This is a great feature that can be added at minimal cost.  One of the first visual signs a delivery person, customer or employee will see is your logo or important identifying words on your fabric MAXDoor.  The way MAXDoor is designed provides the perfect opportunity to customize identification labels for each door.  Here are 5 good reasons why labeling your door is a smart move:

  • Visual signage or labeling on a door is easily recognizable and communicates the brand company logo.  Regardless of the language someone speaks, logos and labels communicate universally.  A logo is one of the first things you notice about a business. Our memories work by remembering images first and names second. Very simply put, the primary purpose of a logo or label is to identify.  Having your company logo on your industrial door turns that door into an advertising tool.
  • Labeling the doors at your facility can provide a big advantage to delivery people who frequent your facility.  When you think of the number of carriers delivering goods to warehouses, factories, airports, mines, aerospace and government facilities, you realize how easily items can be delivered to the wrong location. You want the right delivery unloaded at the right door.  If doors are correctly labeled it makes this process so much easier and makes for an efficient receiving operation.  Labeling doors with numbers, letters or words can make daily operations flow much smoother and can be critical for locating a door if an emergency occurs.   
  • Doors play a significant part in people’s safety.  A labeled door can easily identify what is behind it.  Words such as Caution, Danger, Hazardous, Clean Room, Warning will alert a person as to what dangers may lurk if that door is opened. 
  • Logo’s and labels are critical to emergency responders.  Accidents happen and you want to make sure emergency personnel and your own employees are well aware of the contents being stored behind each door at your facility.  This could greatly reduce the amount of damage to your facility and limited harm to your employees.
  • Regulatory compliance is another reason to strongly consider the labeling of doors. Organizations such as OSHA often require proper industrial labeling of areas containing hazardous materials.

MAXDoor is owned and operated in the USA, has a 2 Year Warranty, minimal repair costs and readily available components.  With over 25 years of experience in the door business, let our experts assist you with designing a custom door to fit your specific needs.  Ask a question or request a quote from sales@maxdoor-usa.com or contact us directly at 248-658-1900.
