MAXDoor Offers Faster Delivery and Longer Service Life

Long lead times for commercial overhead doors is a major problem.  When you need to open or close a door, it is crucial to all operations of a business that the right door is installed at the door opening.  Choosing a vertical lift fabric MAXDoor can provide you with a much shorter delivery time compared to rolling steel doors.  There are many factors contributing to longer lead times such as lack of raw materials (steel), offshore suppliers unable to unload at the docks, and a shortage of employees in the manufacturing and delivery business.

MAXDoor understands the struggles everyone is currently facing especially in the industrial door business.  However, we are based in Michigan where all our design and manufacturing take place. We can build and deliver a door much faster because we are a Made in the USA company designing and manufacturing doors in the state of Michigan.  Our doors can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. and overseas.  Because we have this advantage, we can deliver our product much faster than other door companies who rely on materials from foreign parts and overseas production.

Rolling Steel Doors Are Out – MAXDoor Is In!!

MAXDoor is an American-owned, Michigan-based door manufacturing company with expertise in custom industrial vertical lift fabric doors. Rolling steel doors were never designed for high speed or high cycle daily door openings. Originally, these doors were intended to be used for security and fire protection.  Well, things have changed, and the rolling steel door no longer meets the needs of large industrial operations.  MAXDoor has a better and more cost-effective solution for your door needs.

MAXDoor vs. Rolling Steel Doors

Let’s compare a MAXDoor to a rolling steel door:

  • STRENGTH – MAXDoors are 2-5 times stronger than steel doors and maintains its strength in doors from 10 feet to 100 feet.
  • SPEED – MAXDoors operate a high speed (up to 60” per second), however, rolling steel doors were never designed for high cycle operations.
  • WIND LOAD – MAXDoors have dual-layer fabric door panels with internal traveling beams providing the highest wind load resistance. The door is significant in a building’s ability to withstand high winds because it often closes the largest opening on a building. A rolling door is subject to either being blown into the building or pulled out of the opening.
  • MAINTENANCE – MAXDoors save our customers significantly on the cost of downtime, maintenance, and repair. With a simple design, the horizontal beams are quickly put back in place should a collision occur.  Rolling steel doors are notorious for requiring constant costly repairs.  Think of the money saved by not having to call a service technician for a costly door repair.
  • SAFETY – MAXDoors have a lifting belt and horizontal beam design that has proven to improve safety concerns when hit by forklifts or dump trucks. A free-falling rolling steel door can weigh as much as half a ton and cause considerable damage to workers and expensive equipment should the system fail.
  • SERVICE LIFE – MAXDoor has a service life of 20-25 years with very little maintenance.  A rolling steel door with costly maintenance and repairs will last 5-10 years.

It’s time to put a tough door in place…It’s time for a MAXDoor.

5 Reasons MAXDoor is Tailor-Made for the Lumber Industry

MAXDoor is a vertical lift fabric industrial door made in the USA and designed and manufactured in the state of Michigan. At a sawmill or lumber mill facility our doors fit the large door openings required to move wood product, trucks, and workforce in a safe and productive manner. Wood sits behind everything – including the roof over our heads. Lumber is in high demand, and the factory door allowing entrance and exit needs to be reliable, strong and energy efficient.

MAXDoors are designed for heavy industrial environments requiring excellent environment separation from sawdust, dirt, insects, and odors. Our door can be designed and built for a maintained wind load of up to 250 m.p.h. The MAXDoor is a door engineered to meet EPA requirements for state and local regulations. With a long life – 20-25 years – MAXDoor blows away the competition for a very structurally strong vertical lift fabric door.

MAXDoors are self-supporting and do not put additional load onto the building. Designed to be installed on the interior or exterior side of a wall and operating like a roman shade, our weight of our door is transferred from the traveling door panel into the door guides at every horizontal beam. The horizontal beams in the MAXDoor fabric panel are hidden behind 2 layers of fabric and gives the door exceptional strength. Having the door guides free of any mechanical devices proves to be a huge benefit when there is a collision. With a simple fix, the door is up and operational resulting in no maintenance costs and minimum productivity downtime.

MAXDoor offers a high speed insulated solid panel door. This door operates at an extremely high speed for door openings up to 30 FT wide. Door sections are available in PVC or aluminum and meet the requirements for tough environments. The insulated panels provide excellent environment separation and faster door speeds reduce climate-controlled energy loss costs.

MAXDoors require truly little maintenance. By installing our door at your facility, you will be purchasing a door that will save you a great deal in maintenance costs. Just like any industrial door, MAXDoors have been hit by forklifts or large trucks. When this happens, there is a simple and no cost fix. By design all traveling horizontal beams flex and give way upon impact. The horizontal beams are easily put back into the door guides.

MAXDoors are very cost effective compared to rolling steel or rubber doors. There are many ways to reduce the costs because you can customize our doors. Why pay for a million-cycle door when you are only going to open it a few times a year? The cost can also be reduced by using the same type of operator, controls and hardware used on rolling steel doors.

Installing the right door for the right application is critical to create a safe and secure workplace for you and your employees. MAXDoor has years of experience in designing and building quality industrial doors. Every door need is unique and needs to meet the needs of that specific customer.
