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

The steel and aluminum industries have evolved by leaps and bounds.  All aspects of construction today would come to a standstill if steel and aluminum production should suffer in any way.

Strong and durable industrial doors, MAXDoors, are needed at steel and aluminum factories to protect materials and workers from harsh environments both inside and outside of the facilities.  MAXDoors are designed to be installed on the interior or exterior side of a wall and are self-supporting resulting in no additional load on a building structure.

Let’s see why MAXDoor is the ideal solution for your steel or aluminum factory, plant or warehouse.

  • Today the manufacturing process of steel and aluminum is extremely energy-efficient so having the right industrial door at the entrance can reduce costs as much as 50%.  With a MAXDoor, you have a strong, durable and energy efficient door at the loading dock or large industrial doorway that controls the amount of heat or cool air loss at the door opening.
  • MAXDoors are vertical lift fabric doors designed and built for a maintained wind load of 150 MPH.  A variety of beam size, spacing and material guarantees maximum strength in the harshest of environments.
  • MAXDoors maintain their strength in small (10 FT) and very large (up to 100 FT) door openings.  Structural steel components provide superior overall strength, and the horizontal beam design proves to be significantly stronger than the competitors.
  • MAXDoors are low maintenance and improves safety at the door opening.  A malfunctioning door can be a catastrophe at a steel or aluminum processing facility resulting in expensive downtime. When collisions occur at the door site, the MAXDoor traveling horizontal beams are designed to flex and give way when hit.  The horizontal beams are easily put back into the door guides without damage resulting in minimal downtime and expensive door repairs.   Eliminating expensive door repairs results in significant cost savings.

MAXDoor provides many options:

  • Adjustable high-speed opening with controlled acceleration
  • Independent adjustable closing speed with controlled deceleration
  • Manual door for locations with limited or no power
  • Multiple Fabric choices; dual layer fabric; Fire retardant, etc.
  • Variety of cycle operations

MAXDoors are made in the USA.  To achieve the maximum for your door investment, contact us today to engineer your industrial door solution.
