MAXDoor is a Door for All Seasons

A properly functioning and strong industrial door is essential during all times of the year.  The vertical lift fabric door, a MAXDoor, is being sought after for the many benefits it provides during all seasons and weather conditions.  Our door is known for its strength, durability, and dependability when tough conditions demand a door that you can rely on.  With a service life of 20-25 years, MAXDoor is the best value on the market.

Fall and Winter Doors

Get ready for the harsh weather – plan ahead and have a door in place that will provide the following:

  • Significant wind load capacity is essential and MAXDoor is designed and built for a maintained wind load of up to 150 m.p.h.
  • High cycle capability is essential and MAXDoors easily handle hundreds of cycles per day.
  • Strength is a key component of a MAXDoor. Our door is 2-5 times stronger than a rolling steel door, and the guides and frames are made from steel and the door panel comes in a variety of fabric strengths including explosion proof.
  • Energy cost reduction and MAXDoor go hand in hand.  Having the right door in place greatly reduces the cost of energy and utility costs in addition to excessive wear and tear on cooling/HVAC units.
  • Collisions occur more frequently during the winter months and that can lead to major repair costs. MAXDoors require very little maintenance since when hit, the door guides pop out and are easily placed back inside the guides. No downtime and no maintenance costs.

Spring and Summer Doors

Wind, rain, dust, pollen, rodents all need to be kept out of your facility.  A MAXDoor provides great protection and efficiency when you need it.

  • MAXDoor is designed to thrive in tough, dirty environments and provide excellent environment separation.  Our door satisfies EPA requirements for bird and rodent control and cuts down on dust and pollen entering your facility.
  • With a dual layer fabric door panel, MAXDoor is very energy efficient and allows less outside heat into the building resulting in a cooler workspace and lower A/C bills.
  • Safety is a key component in the design and build of a MAXDoor. The lifting belts and horizontal beam design have proven to improve safety issues in real life collisions with lift trucks and industrial articulating dump trucks.

MAXDoors are Made in the USA

Made in the USA, MAXDoor is truly a door that can withstand all types of weather conditions. If you want to achieve the maximum for your industrial door investment, please contact us today.

High Temperature Resistant Fabric Door Case Study

The Challenge

A leading manufacturer of quality water works products, such as valves and hydrants, contacted MAXDoor with an unusual request.  A high temperature fabric door was required at their manufacturing facility.  This door needed to withstand temperatures of 500 degrees plus.  The door also needed to be installed upside down with a rail at the top to bring components onto the heated conveyor system.

In the current situation all the intense heat from the booth was escaping into the factory making working conditions next to impossible.  In addition, with all the heat loss, the energy bills were exorbitant.

The Solution

  1. MAXDoor engineers designed, and custom built a 8’ x 9’ door with high temperature resistant fabric.
  2. The MAXDoor was designed to be installed as an upside-down door separating the oven-heated booth from the rest of the factory.
  3. Installed the door so that the rail at the top allowed parts to enter the booth for heat treatment.

The Results

After installation of the new MAXDoor, the following results were achieved:

  • Overall energy savings
  • Overall improved quality of valves and hydrants
  • Stopped the heat from escaping into the plant
  • Improved workplace environment
  • Elimination of heat loss

Improve Safety and Efficiency at Mine Sites

Extracting raw materials from the earth is dangerous business.  Protecting the workers and the environment is critical during all mining operations.  One way to enhance safety and protect the surrounding environment is to make sure the right doors are installed in crusher buildings, truck shops, wash bays and pellet plants.

Dependable, Strong and Safe

Tough mining conditions demand strong and safe entrance doors at all openings.  A door must stand tough in dirty, gritty and corrosive environments.  A premium door needs to be corrosive-resistant and strong enough to handle the demands of daily mining operations.  A door that is constantly breaking down will cost your operation a lot of unnecessary expense.

Steel Doors Are Out

The use of big expansive steel doors is a thing of the past.  Rolling steel doors are expensive and corrode quickly.  In addition, they need continuous repair and replacement.  Steel doors have a very short service life and can be a safety hazard. What you need at mining door openings are MAXDoors – the vertical fabric lift door that fits in less space and requires no additional building modifications.  In addition, a fabric door allows more natural sunlight into the building which greatly improves safety inside the building.

Controlling Dust and Dirt

MAXDoors operate at a high speed and cut down on dust and dirt.  Even on crusher buildings where debris is flying, our door is made with dual-layer fabric and provides a tight seal when closed.

Made in the USA, MAXDoor is a supplier to mining sites throughout North America.

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.

Overhead Door Replacement

Replace your overhead door with a vertical lift fabric MAXDoor.  Remember, for example, rolling steel doors are the cheapest door you can buy, and right now you will wait months to get one delivered.  Instead look to MAXDoor and install a door that is high quality, 2-5 times stronger than most doors and has a life span of 20-25 years of dependability.

Experience Matters

With 35 years plus in the door business, we can design and custom build a door to fit your specific door opening needs.  MAXDoors hold up in the most demanding of envi­ronments and can be designed and built for a maintained windload of up to 150 m.p.h.
