MAXDoor – The Ideal Choice for Small Door Openings

MAXDoorFact Check:   MAXDoors are only for large door openings.

A:  NOT TRUE!!  You are missing the boat on this one. Too many people think that MAXDoors are only for large industrial openings.  In fact, MAXDoors are ideal and competitively priced for the smaller door openings as small as 10 feet in any type of facility (including factories, loading docks, industrial buildings, warehouses and more) and here are the facts to prove it:

MAXDoor PricingVery cost effective compared to rolling steel, fabric or rubber doors. MAXDoors are certainly cost effective for large door openings but we have found the same to be true if you are looking at a high quality roll up door. Here’s a couple reason why:

  • Why pay for a million cycle door when you are only going to open it a few times a year?  MAXDoors can be provide for those door locations that only see a few operations – this reduces the cost.
  • The cost of the MAXDoor can be decreased by using the same type of operator, controls and hardware used on rolling steel doors.

MAXDoor Cuts Energy and Utility Costs on climate controlled buildings. This USA-made vertical lift fabric door can save a company as much as 50% on utility costs.

MAXDoor Wind Load – designed and built for a maintained Wind Load of up to 150 m.p.h. Horizontal beams and 2-layered fabric design gives the door superior strength against the wind.

MAXDoor minimizes your maintenance and repair bills due to the dual layer fabric design that offers many advantages over other industrial doors.

MAXDoor is made in the USA and built for strength using steel and other components made in North America.


MAXDoor addresses your safety concerns. The lifting belt and horizontal beam design limit safety issues in real life collisions with industrial trucks.

MAXDoor vs The Other Industrial Doors



Knock-Out Fabric Doors (Breakaway)

Rubber Doors

High Speed Fabric Doors

Other Vertical Lift Doors

A major problem with these OTHER roll up, high speed, breakaway, fabric or rubber doors is that they have curtains with single layer fabric or rubber.  This particular attribute matters greatly because those types of doors should only be installed where there is zero to minimal exposure to wind or air pressure.

Gusts of Wind in To Your Building

In fact, door openings on exterior walls never have it so easy!  Because they are always exposed to high wind pressure the single layer of fabric or rubber curtain catches the wind like a sail on a sail boat.  The curtain then rises up off of the floor, or, blows out of the opening resulting in wind getting into the building.

The Solution…Get the Right Door

These fabric roll-up doors have to rely on some other type of device to keep the door curtain in the guides.  Door manufacturers will promote their gadget as a way to minimize this problem.  But in reality, the problem is they are promoting the wrong type of door. The types of doors we have mentioned only promote one feature and do not offer all of the features in one door like a MAXDoor.

Get It All with a MAXDoor

The MAXDoor dual layer vertical fabric door design is the only door that provides you with the following:

Best Alternative To Rolling Steel Doors


Here is why a vertical lift fabric MAXDoor is the perfect replacement for your Rolling Steel doors.  Rolling Steel doors are typically the least expensive door you can buy and in the old days were used primarily as security on the front of stores and for fire protection at door openings on building fire walls. These doors typically were manually operated and installed at door openings that did not see very many cycles per day.

History of Rolling Steel Doors

Rolling Steel doors were normally installed at small and medium size door openings (less than 30-ft wide). As time went on, customers continued to ask for inexpensive door solutions for their door openings.  Funding for purchasing new doors is always tight and a “maintenance can fix it” attitude is very popular. Most companies do not compare the high cost of maintenance when purchasing a lesser product over time. And so Rolling Steel doors were provided for a variety of door openings they were never intended for, such as:

  • High speed or high cycle door openings.
  • Energy efficiency or to have minimal operating cost.

Rolling Steel doors became larger and faster even though the basic design of the door did not change.

You can now purchase very large Rolling Steel and Rubber Curtain doors, but they will never match the strength to resist the wind or collision impacts like a MAXDOOR.  The RS and Rubber curtain doors come with high maintenance costs.
