Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc. and Fairborn Industries both of Upper Sandusky, Ohio have been working together to produce a design specific roll up screen door for dock shelters of a large freight company based in the United States. The motorized roll up screen door provides a barrier against bug and bird entrance while allowing air flow through the unconditioned terminal processing areas. The roll up screen door also provides limited security while the dock doors are in the open position.
The new design makes installation simple and also makes maintenance and repair easier. If a door is damaged, sections can be replaced, not requiring the entire door to be replaced. The screen material is heavy duty, can be logoed, and is very resistant to wear. The cross members are solid aluminum bar preventing the door to be blown in by heavier winds. The tube motor (motor inside of the tube in which the door rolls up on to) reduces the clutter above the opening which is often seen with an exterior motor mounted either above, or to the side of, the opening.
Dwight Lohr, Dover Roller Shutters sales and operations, recently visited the test site near Denver, Colorado to inspect and measure door openings to ensure trouble free installation. Install of the first two should take place around the end of May 2012. Indications are that successful performance of the products at the test site will translate to a broad roll out of this product for the remainder of the test site and subsequently to other Fed Ex facilities throughout North America.
